Apple to Use LED Backlight Units in all MacBooks

According to the Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN), Apple plans to use LED backlight units (BLUs) in all of its MacBooks in 2009, which will benefit Taiwan-based BLU maker Kenmos Technology.

Kenmos was Apple's main suppler for LED BLUs in 2007, according to the paper. Market observers estimate that Kenmos Technology's shipments could reach 1.5 million units this year, up five times compared to 2007, for a global market share of 9%, stated the paper. LED BLUs have already contributed more than NT$2 billion (US$66 million) to Kenmos' revenues this year, noted the EDN.
