As WWDC 2018 is drawing closer, more reports are rolling up in the tech market about what Apple has to offer this time. As per such reports, the tech-giant is soon to announce a refreshed, entry-level MacBook at the end of the second quarter this year. If these reports are to be believed, the new MacBook will own the same retina display as featured in the previous 13’’ MacBook Pro.
Although there is not much information about the retina display, the rest design and price of the new MacBook has got many revelations so far. The entry-level MacBook is supposed to cost around $900 (£650), quite similar to the existing, lower-budget MacBook Air models already on the market. As for the design, the new MacBook will boast a 2560 x 1600 resolution with a 13.3-inch display.

According to its deal with South Korea based LG Display, Apple will start receiving the panels from April this year to begin producing the first batch of the entry-level MacBook machines by late May or early June.
According to the reports, the company is expected to ship around 6 million units of the refreshed MacBook later this year, having its 70 percent orders with Quanta Computer and the remaining with Foxconn. Analysts are of the view that the affordable, upcoming MacBook can hike up MacBook sales by up to 10-15 percent which is pretty significant.
