In the report, it's said the company may introduce a new 13-inch MacBook that's cheaper than the current 12-inch MacBook but would likely replace the current 13-inch MacBook Air. It'll be priced somewhere around the $999 price point the current Air sits at, although it may cost a bit more or less. This should also be accompanied by a slightly more pricey version toting double the storage at 256GB.

This comes from a DigiTimes analyst who claims that Apple is using LG Display for the new 13.3-inch screens, which will boast the same resolution as the Retina-toting MacBook Pro: 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. That's a lot higher than the 1440 x 900 in today's Air and it's even sharper than the 12-inch MacBook's 2304 x 1440.

Digitimes claims that Apple was originally going to use a Chinese manufacturer to make displays for this new cheaper MacBook, but has ultimately chose to use LG Display due to quality issues from earlier test production.
