Apple already shipped 400,000-500,000 units of its new MacBook Air from its supply chain in June and the volume is expected to remain strong through August, according to a DigiTimes report.
The sources estimated that Apple's MacBook series sales will reach 13-14 million units in 2011 and may even reach 15 million units, while adding that Apple is the only vendor that has provided a full shipments forecast to the first quarter of 2012 as the IT industry is being rather conservative about the overall demand in the second half of 2011.
The new MacBook Air features up to twice the performance of the previous generation with Core i5/i7 processors, flash storage for instant-on responsiveness, a compact design, Thunderbolt I/O, and a new low price of $999.
