Another one of those chatty Cathy Taiwan industry sources has leaked some information regarding a possible 15.4-inch MacBook release. This 15.4-inch MacBook is being made by Quanta Computer (the 13.3-inch MacBooks are made by Asustek) and is slated for a second quarter release. It is also being rumored that the price for this 15.4-inch MacBook will be more competitively priced because of the reduced cost of 15.4-inch LCD screens. No word on the specs, but I would imagine that they would remain the same.

Looking ahead at an actual announcement: there is still a rumored Apple event for February 20 and of course WWDC in the summer. The 15.4-inch model would be a nice middle man between the 13.3-MacBook and 17-MacBook Pro, but what we really want to see is a 12-inch MacBook. Am I right?
