The world’s largest production OLED TV will be headed to the states later this year, according to LG reps at the ISE-2010 LG Electronics show. LG is looking at mid-2010 for availability. How much can you expect to pay for it? How about $2,500? Hope you have some money in the bank.

Apparently the 15-inch EL9500 will be followed with 19 and 20 inch OLEDs. There’s even a 40-inch version that none of us can afford coming in 2012. Just as the Mayans predicted.

MacBook Air now $500 cheaperWord on the street is that Apple is set to get one of the largest practical OLED displays as early as this summer. Reportedly, a senior executive from LG Display says that Apple will use a newly-developed 15-inch screen for a “brand new” notebook that’s due in June and will be one of the first companies anywhere to use the screen.

Specs as well as a notebook line name were not mentioned. The rumor is from Australia’s Smarthouse which cited a senior LG executive from LG Display as the source. The system is likely to be expensive, since the panel will be 2 to 3 times as costly to make as an equivalent LCD.

We can’t dismiss this one outright because a 15 inch MacBook Air would be an interesting compromise between portability and screen, so color us intrigued.

It’s very possible, but we are taking it with the usual grain of salt, even though Apple.pro was dead on about the leaked unibody MacBook pictures. As usual, I guess we will find out in time. Are any of you interested in a MacBook that’s thin and light with a big screen? I’m sure you are.
