This from Gizmodo and MacDailyNews,

“Think MacBook screen, possibly a bit smaller, in glass with iPhone-like, but fuller-featured multi-touch. Gesture library. Full Mac OS X. This is why they bought P.A. Semi. Possibly with Immersion’s haptic tech. Slot-loading SuperDrive. Accelerometer. GPS. Pretty expensive to produce initially, but sold at “low” price that will reduce margins. Apple wants to move these babies. And move they will. This is some sick shit. App Store-compatible, able to run Mac apps, too. By October at the latest.”

I know I’ll be getting this if it’s for real.

  2. This is definitely without a doubt the future of Notebooks full stop. I’d say this is 3-5 or so years off yet, but if done properly (and Apple usually does do things properly) it would be revolutionary.

    I mean it is the obvious next step really. I’d love to see a Netbook that operates like this. Sure there are touchscreens available but they are usually stylus operated junk!

  3. Problem will be the price,
    Will surely cost atleast 1.5x-2x the price of a macbook air.
