White MacBook being killed off?

Analyst claims supplies are running so low that white MacBook could be gone by August.

The white MacBook, so long Apple’s entry level laptop, appears to be on its way out. That’s according to Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has told AppleInsider that supplies of the device appear set to run out in August.

It had been assumed that a new MacBook would be released to coincide with the launch of Mac OS X Lion today. Supplies have been low or non-existent for weeks. But now the plastic model looks set to be gazumped by the new MacBook Air, due for release any day now.

The new MacBook Air, with 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD, could potentially be sold at the same £867 price tag as the white MacBook. That would undoubtedly be more appealing to punters than the hefty old white model, which still use an ageing Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

All will be revealed soon, so stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for all the news as we get it.
