15-Inch MacBook Air Demand Reportedly 'Weaker Than Expected' So Far
The new 15-inch MacBook Air has been widely praised, but one new report claims that sales of it are so low that manufacturing is being cut.
It was rumored and awaited, then the 15-inch MacBook Air was launched, and got universally good reviews. AppleInsider even called it the "sweet spot for portability and power."
However, according to Digitimes — and only Digitimes — sources in the supply chain claim that sales have been as much as 50% below predictions.
The chief selling point of the 15-inch MacBook Air is its screen, which is larger than in previous models. Prior to this device, users would have to buy a much more costly MacBook Pro in order to get a larger screen.
