Interesting plan. The screen-size/resolution on the MacBook was one of the reasons I plumped for a 15.4" MacBook Pro.



Would people here be interested if this were to materialise?

    Huh, that's cool I guess. The reason I got the 13.3 Macbook is because it so small. I have an external 24" monitor for home-use.

    No. Not a MacBook. It's a redesign of the MBP. New enclosures in May everyone!

    A 15" consumer laptop would be good for Apple.

    I agree. I'd probably buy it. They should definitely have a 15" MacBook.

    A 15" macbook might be worth it if it was like 799-999 like other baseline laptops from other manufacturers.



    But knowing apple it would probably be more expensive than the 13" ones and at that point I gotta ask wtf is the point?

    if they drop the price of a 13.3 macbook down to $1000 and then priced the 15" at 1200 . . i think Apple will make a giant leap in market share

    then it will have to be crippled so the MBP still has some share...theres not much point in a 15" model. the 15" one would need to have the same specs as the 13.3 one but just a larger screen. any major additions will creep too much into the MBP space. the 13.3" model is doing well, so i say keep it.

    You do know that the most popular notebooks on the market at 15" integrated graphics models right?

    Why not a 15.4" model MacBook now? Apple: why wait until May?
