back to article LG insider points to Apple OLED notebook

An LG staffer has made the very bold claim that 15in Apple notebooks equipped with OLED displays will appear within months.

    "Would even Apple launch an ultra-premium product during the downturn?"

    yes, plenty of Apple buyers still got the green to blow on flashy stuff

    don't think it's the law that Apple can only launch iphone stuff at ADC either

    something to be said for a premium brand to lead the market with something like OLED

    Dell and others then have to catch up with their Air-a-likes ...

    Of course! For heavens' sake, it's not rocket science: the rich are the only people likely to come out of this mess OK. As usual, it will be the working- and middle-classes that suffer. IIRC, Porche did very well over the past 12 months. If I were running any manufacturing business right now, I should be frantically trying to move my product range up-market.

    Cost savings?

    Isn't OLED _way_ cheaper than LCD? I mean why else is it used so frequently in cheap devices?

    Expensive OLED?? WTF???

    "...Tiwari also warned that they will “cost 2.1 times the price of an LCD”"

    And what happened to the talk that OLED was going to be cheaper to produce than LCD? At 2.1 times the cost of LCD the LCD manufacturers are hardly going to be pooing their pants at the prospect of Sony/LG wiping the floor with this new technology. It'll be selling like Unicorn horns.

    Paris - 'cos she's a rare bit of expensive stuff also
