According to DigiTimes, a Taiwanese BLU manufacturer Kenmos Technology will provide Apple with the LED units for their new MacBook range, in addition to the MacBook Airs and Pros which already feature the technology. Little else is known about the deal, however this is one step closer to the birth of a new, green Apple, with LED backlit displays being more energy-efficient than the current CCFL backlights.
