A good report from DSCC clearly shows the current state of high-end notebook display technologies. I think the gap between mini-LED MacBook Pro and OLED notebook shipments may widen in 2022-2023.

Although inflation is a problem. But the company is believed to be able to outperform its competitors thanks to the brand’s value.
The comments came in response to a March 21 report from analytics firm DSCC. And the two latest MacBook Pro models from Apple enjoyed a significant dominance of the advanced laptop market after their launch.
