Are all Apple MacBooks slated to have LED-backlit displays next year?
It certainly seems that way, at least according to an article in the Chinese-language Economic Daily News.
DigiTimes is reporting that Taiwan-based Kenmos Technology will be providing LED-backlit displays for Apple next year.
It would be an interesting move, because the MacBook is a consumer-based economical (think students) 13.3-inch laptop. This would put it, display-wise, on par with the 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pros, as well as the 13.3-inch MacBook Air, all of which already have LED-displays.
This could also open the door to a new design of the MacBook series. The series is probably due for a new design in the next 18 months, as Apple transitions from plastic / polycarbonate to aluminum / steel – something they’ve already done with their consumer-based iMac desktop line.
