Flat-panel makers have obtained orders for Apples new MacBook to be launched in the third quarter of 2008 according to a MarketWatch Report.

AU Optronics Corp. and Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp., Taiwan's top two flat-panel makers by revenue, have obtained flat-panel orders for Apple Inc.'s new MacBook, the Commercial Times reported Friday, citing industry sources.

According to the Chinese daily, the shipment target for the MacBook is in the third quarter of this year. The flat-panel order is up to three million units and could be worth nearly NT$13.5 billion. The orders will be evenly split between the two companies.
