Apple is looking for a third MacBook manufacturer - and its iPod-making partner, Foxconn Electronics, looks set to take the business.

DigiTimes reports Apple to be seeking a third maker for its notebooks. Citing the Economic Daily News, it reports that Foxconn is "eyeing" Apple's order.

Asustek Computer (MacBook) and Quanta Computer (MacBook pro) presently build Apple's notebooks, while Foxconn builds Apple's desktop machines, the report claims.
