My Prediction For The New Line Of Apple MacBooks (October 14)

Posted Oct 9, 2008

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is geared to make a new announcement about their MacBook line.  Apple is hosting an invite-only event at the company’s Town Hall in Cupertino, Calif. on October 14.  Everyone seems to have a theory about what will be announced.  Duncan Riley predicts that there will be a new line of MacBooks retailing at about $800.  Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Munster predicts that the new line of MacBooks will retail for about $899-$999.

Gene Munster is also predicting that Apple will be redesigning the 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pro line.  Boing Boing speculates that the MacBook Pro on the invite below is suggested to be 13.3″ aluminum.

I believe some of the speculations are correct.  There will most likely be a new, smaller MacBook for a small price. 

Here is my prediction:
– Apple will introduce the 13.3″ MacBook Pro for about $1,299-$1,5999
– Apple will reduce the price of the current 13″ MacBook from $1,099 to $899
– Apple will reduce the price of the current 15″ MacBook Pro from $1,999 to $1,799 and so forth
