TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is known for his often accurate predictions about future Apple hardware. Kuo now writes that the Cupertino-based electronics giant has several new laptops in its pipeline. Next year we can expect two redesigned MacBook Pro systems and a new "affordable" MacBook Air is expected in 2022.

All these systems will feature Apple Silicon in combination with mini-LED displays. Interestingly, Kuo believes Apple will be able to offset the higher cost of mini-LED displays thanks to the savings realized by using Apple Silicon:
Kuo also believes that Apple will be able to offset the increased cost of using mini-LED panels in Mac devices because the cost of 'Apple Silicon' chips is significantly lower than that of Intel processors.
Mini-LED displays promise higher brightness, better contrast ratio, deeper blacks, and better energy efficiency. Compared with OLED, Mini-LED is cheaper to manufacture, doesn't suffer from burn-in issues, and should have better energy efficiency.
