|By:, SA News Editor

KGI expects Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) Mac laptop unit shipments to rise 13% to 16% this year, compared to 7% to 10% growth for the iPad and a max 6% growth for the iPhone.

In terms of shipment numbers, iPhones would still win on volume. But the laptop growth rate is still notable. 

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects the unit shipments to pick up most in 2H due to the new product launches, which are rumored to include a more affordable MacBook Air and a 13-inch Retina MacBook.
