Apple may drop 17-inch MacBook Pro, analyst says

The Cupertino tech giant won’t be updating 17-inch MacBook Pro models, an analyst believes.

In a research note obtained by Apple blog MacRumors, KGI Securities research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that “Apple is likely to stop making the 17-inch MacBook Pro this year due to falling shipments, in order to maintain a lean product line strategy.”

Kuo says Apple sold just 50,000 units of the 17-inch MacBook Pro, considerably low compared to the 1.5 million 13-inch MacBook Pros and 500,000 15-inch MacBook Pros.

The analyst also estimates that Apple’s Mac line will be boosted in the Q2 of 2012 thanks to several factors.

“Three of which are: (1) ‘Mountain Lion,’ which integrates iOS features with Mac OS, Apple TV’s interaction function, will be launched in June; (2) upgrading to Ivy Bridge [processors]; and (3) back-to-school demand,” he wrote.

“We forecast Apple will sell 5.32 [million] units of the Mac series (up 28.5 percent [quarter-over-quarter] and 35 percent [year-over-year) in 2Q12, making it the main growth driver.”

According to AppleInsider, the roll out of the revamped MacBooks is expected to be staggered, with the new 15-inch models (possibly) hitting Apple store shelves as soon as this month.



Latest rumors indicate that a new 15-inch model will arrive in stores as soon as this month, followe by a 13-inch MacBook Pro in June.
