Fourth Quarter MacBook Pro Shipments to be Better Than Expected [Report]

Posted November 22, 2016 at 1:57pm by iClarified
Fourth quarter shipments of the new MacBook Pro are believed to be higher than expected, according to MacBook Pro assembler Quanta Computer.

DigiTimes reports:

Quanta Computer, the sole producer of MacBook Pro products, expects its notebook shipments to be better than expected in the fourth quarter of 2016 and will slip only 2-3% on quarter from the previous quarter, according to company vice chairman CC Leung.

The strong demand for the new MacBook Pro will also help ODMs.

Meanwhile, continued replacement demand for business-use Windows 10 models and strong sales of new MacBook Pro products will also keep ODMs busy in the first quarter of 2017, the sources added.

Despite an outcry from professional users over a lack of features, Apple SVP Phil Schiller has said "We are proud to tell you that so far our online store has had more orders for the new MacBook Pro than any other pro notebook before. So there certainly are a lot of people as excited as we are about it."

Obviously they are selling more than previous MBP cause the line has not been upgraded for more than 3 years! People have been holding off buying, myself included. I'm still not convinced as I have lost faith in Apple. I have an iPhone 7 and hate it. Jams with the latest updates lack of an Aux connector which is stupid to have a phone with one connection and having multiple adapters is not intuitive just retarded.

Says Apple... :) Assuming their claims are correct (doubt it), do they also tell you return rate on that overpriced underrated Dongle Pro machine? The only pro thing about that machine is getting pro at using and carrying tens of different dongles...

Better than to be expected? After apple murdered the macbook pro lineup, they should expect drop in sales

Time will tell... For me, cMBP > rMBP > dMBP (as in dongle MBP). Once my cMBP needs to be replaced, if there is no rMBP available (refurbs?), that will be the day I will not be getting an Apple computer after using them for decades. Oh well.
