MacBook upgrade set for Q3

 Apple is moving toward the release of a redesigned MacBook, a new report emanating from the company’s Asian Mac manufacturers claims.

AU Optronics Corp. and Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp. have been signed-up to produce flat-panel screens for the new MacBook models, confirmed the Commercial Times this morning, citing “sources”.

In line with Apple’s continued marketshare growth for its laptop offerings, Apple has set strong targets for sales of the new device, which MarketWatch claims is set for launch in the third quarter of 2008 (so that’s somewhere between July and September, people). Apple is aiming for three million MacBook sales. The two flat-panel manufacturers are the two largest in Taiwan, the report adds.
