LED-Based Laptops from Apple in 2007?
With confirmation from Apple that they would be pursuing LED-based screen technology in the coming future, there was speculation on which specific models would first see the new LED screens.
Digitimes claims that Apple is currently considering 13.3" and 15.4" panels from AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optotronics. These laptop displays would ship in "second or third quarter of 2007" suggesting a relatively soon launch for the new displays:
Sources recently said AUO and CMO will enter volume production for LED-based LCD modules (LCMs) in the second and third quarter, respectively, of 2007, with CMO being more aggressive in the segment since it will launch more models than AUO.
