Apple plans to make Macbooks thinner

Written by Nick Farrell



Only way to counter Ultrabooks


Jobs' Mob has a cunning plan to deal with Intel's ultrabook by making its own Macbook's thinner but all this might backfire on it. According to Bloomberg, the MacBook Pro machines, to be unveiled at Apple’s annual developers conference starting June 11, will borrow more from the Air or the Ultrabook, depending on who you talk too.

The new Apple laptops to be unveiled at Apple's annual developers conference starting June 11, 2012, will run on Intel's  Ivy Bridge, and will have a slimmed-down body design from the current 0.95-inch thickness. Intel is in a win/win position with Apple's new Macbooks.  Not only does it have its chips onboard, it will also be confirming that its Ultrabook design is established across the entire industry. Apple also may announce the debut date of its latest Mac operating system, called Mountain Lion.

The new software aligns Mac computers with mobile devices and sticks iOS mobile software that runs the iPhone and iPad and pushes Apple’s iCloud digital-storage service.  It will also make all other Apple software out-of-date and based on Jobs' Mob's previous antics mean that it will not provide security upgrades for older versions of the OS.
