Foxconn is going to manufacture 1.5 million MacBook Pro notebooks for Apple in 2007.
Foxconn Electronics, the registered trade name of Hon Hai Precision Industry, is expected to ship 3.2 million notebooks in 2007 after recently adding Apple Computer and Lenovo to its list of notebook clients.

According to the Taiwan-based Topology Research Institute (TRI), Foxconn will start building notebooks for Apple in 2007, with the total shipments expected to come in at 1.5 million for the calendar year.

Based on a recent series of reports, it's believed the orders to Foxconn are for Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro notebooks.
Next year we may also see the launch of a 100GB iPod that uses Toshiba's new 1.8-inch 100GB HDD.
