China has been one of those developing countries that until a while ago nobody took into account, only those economists who knew that would expand as a world power in a few years. Today it is making a gap between many projects of companies by leaps and bounds due to its increasing economic power. For this same reason, rumors continue to be directed to a Macbook Air with a larger screen diagonal that would focus mainly on China, this country being, as we can read, the main driver of this idea.
It's already more than a year we commented as these rumors pointed to how Apple had in mind to introduce this model in the Asian market, but the question I ask myself is if you really need a 14-inch Macbook Air to take the largest share of users.
In 2011, the United States was the world leader in sales of computer equipment by a good margin, but now the sale of such equipment in China in 2012 has been higher than the United States with 69 and 66 million teams sold respectively, which gives us a clear idea of the expansion that this giant about to wake up is undergoing.
So why specifically choose a 14-inch screen size? The answer to this question is easy, in China the sale of laptops with sizes of 14 inches has accounted for more than 70% of sales in this category and therefore if the largest buyer in the world prefers that size, at least it is to think about it. But on the other hand we also know that for the rest of the world it is less than 30% of users who would choose this size, hence the dilemma.
From my point of view, the 11 and 13,3-inch sizes are the best option and the most balanced with respect to global preferences, so it would not make sense to this. It would seem like a better option than they will relaunch the 17-inch model of the Macbook proSince there are still many users who are looking for a desktop replacement and at the same time "portable" with the largest possible screen and not a laptop where mobility as such prevails, but that is my humble opinion.
