Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is rumored to launch a thinner MacBook later by the end of 2014 or early 2015. A new report indicated component production for the laptop already begun. The same report indicated Apple will halt production of the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Retina by the end of the year.

Apple’s goal to continually improve products

Apple is known for changing their products frequently and revolutionizing products to make the gadgets faster and more efficient. The MacBook is no exception.

    Summary

    New Apple products were banned from government procurement lists.

    Apple gets significant revenue from China.

    The impact to long-term growth is the biggest concern.
