Is a 15.4-Inch MacBook Model Forthcoming?

: they’re well put-together, slender, get-the-job-done machines. But there is a gap in the product matrix between the 13.3-inch black MacBook at the 15.4-inch prosumer MacBoo Pro. But according to circulating rumors, as well as DigiTimes from Taiwan, Apple has a 15.4-inch MacBook in the works.

The non-Pro laptop is likely replace the black high-end MacBook, bridging the two product families. This would be part of an overall product refresh for Q2 of this year for the MacBooks. While we don’t know anything else, it’s also probable that this refresh will include a move away from fluorescent backlighting in the MacBook Pro to more energy-conservative LED backlighting, as well as other upgrades.

If you’re in the market for a MacBook, you might want to wait a few weeks and see what happens.
