We continue to hear rumours about the world of Apple, and we do so with the information collected by Digitmes, where they rub shoulders with the idea that Apple is launching the first MacBook with an ARM processor for undemanding tasks.
Although there is little information about it (and about which you have to pick up with tweezers). This medium even dares to mention the company that would manufacture this new MacBook model, specifically Pegatron .
Pegatron in a well-known Taiwanese company, where it manufactures consumer electronics devices. Apple has a close relationship, as it is one of the largest assemblers of the iPhone, especially the iPhone 8 , while Foxconn took the cake for the iPhone X.
There is one thing that is true, and that is the rumors for quite some time about the possibility of Apple producing its own processors and thus not having to depend on Intel, since this can slow down the evolution of Macs (as it already happened).
As we say, this is not something new, so we are not “surprised” by this kind of news either. But to tell the truth, we can’t dismiss it as something with force of weight because of the scarce information obtained. With WWDC 18 just around the corner, we may know some information about it in the next few days.
From Pegatron’s side, there is no official information, where they have neither affirmed nor denied this news. This is not at all surprising, the degree of airtightness and confidentiality handled by the companies associated with Apple, is quite high, so possibly, he will not make any kind of statement about it.
Going back to the possibility of seeing a MacBook with a ARM processor , this would be focused on an input device, being one of the lowest ranges for undemanding tasks. But we insist that this kind of information published by pro Digitimes, must be taken with tweezers.
What do you think of this idea? Do you think this information could be a powerful force in the near future of MacBook?
