The new MacBook will use Intel’s Kaby Lake processor, industry sources reportedly advised DigiTimes, The sources also expect the refreshed notebook to start from $1,200 for the base model, but did not advise on any potential specification changes, aside from the processor.

Claimed to be originally scheduled for a refresh in the fourth quarter of 2017, the MacBook update was apparently delayed due to Intel having issues with producing processors under a 10-nanometer process. After Intel confirmed it would wait until 2019 before mass producing the 10-nanometer processors, Apple allegedly reworked the MacBook’s design to use the 14-nanometer Kaby Lake architecture, rather than put off the refresh for another year.
