Apple Loaded up to Ship 15 Million Mac Airs This Year

July 21, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A busy year for Apple, I say. The moon hasn’t passed through its full lunar cycle since the new batch of Airs took over the market with the Lion captaining them.

Cupertino, we hear, is now padding up to shelf 1.5 million MacBook Air systems this summer. The company is, reportedly, going strong with 400,000 to 500,000 units of the new i5 core models.

If this rate is kept through the months, analysts believe that Apple would be on track to ship between 1.2-1.5 million Airs in the coming months. When compared to a major share of Windows PC makers, Cupertino has enjoyed the upper hand this year.

The high performance of Apple through the early part of 2011 expects the company to ship out 13 million to 14 million and even 15 million by the year’s end if the going keeps smooth.

So far this year, consumers have brought about 5.54 million MacBooks of all kinds, so we can expect the number to climb as the summer wanes. Moreover, in a move that might be called clever, Apple has quietly dropped the white, plastic MacBook from its lineup.

The disappearance of the series, which was introduced in 2006, is likely to be met with a rapid rise of the redesigned MacBook Air. With the advent of the Lion OS and new Airs, Cupertino expects a rise in demand of its Mac Airs within the next few months.

The new Airs provide more speed and working under an updated OS will give the users the expected high level performance. Statistically burrowing through Apple’s marketing year, we find that the company is on the verge of a selling spree, and will most likely outshine other PC makers by the time the snow falls.
