As if ultrabooks didn’t have it bad enough


Building on the success of its ultrathin MacBook Air series, Apple is said to be testing a 15-inch ultrathin that could show up just in time to make ultrabooks’ lives a bit more miserable.

According to Appleinsider, Apple is finishing up testing on 15-inch ultrathin LCDs, which are a crucial component of the design. Apple already has more than four years experience with the MacBook Air series, so it is safe to assume it has the rest of the design covered already.

Intel partners are having trouble marketing 11.6- and 13.3-inch ultrabooks and there’s no talk of larger models just yet.
