The Mac Newb Tube

Regrets not buying AAPL stock since Jan. ’07 (85.05)

10 & 12-inch, Macbook Nano / Mini. Touch gestures, glass screens, flash HD, and Blu-ray?

[UPDATE]: Rumor realized! The all-new Macbook Air. Details here.

Renditions have surfaced surrounding the rumored slim Macbook Pro. Speculations give a window from a release with Leopard this October, to an unveiling at Macworld ’08. Supposedly, mockups surfaced, in fear of releasing real photos, ala iPod nano “fatty” pics and Apple legal debacle last month. Speculations include iMac aluminum aesthetics, glass screens with black border, larger trackpad with integrated touch gestures (pinching, flicking), flash HD (upto 80gb), slimmer profile, and Blu-ray drives.

Alternate Tag line: “Touch like a Pro”. Got a better one? Let us know in the comments!

[Update] Optical drives maybe out on some ultra thin models, touting “zero-movable parts” and iPhone thinness. Unclear whether or not this non optical drive model will either be a Macbook or Macbook Pro, or a new line all together (we place our bets on “Macbook Nano” or “Macbook Mini”). Dedicated GPUs for all models possible due to Leopard’s graphical demand and desired better gaming through emulation (Boot Camp, Parallels, etc).

  1. You might want to put a keyboard on that mock up that looks like the new wireless keyboard (might make it look more than the “new macbooks”)

  2. I’m not sure if they’ll go that same route… great idea though! Eh, bedtime… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Try dropping an iPod Touch screen into the area you’ve got indicated as a oversized trackpad, dimensions should be about the same.

  6. That’s the million dollar question isn’t it; before Leopard, with Leopard, before the Holidays, or in January at Macworld? As far as reports go, no one is sure yet.

  7. How about putting an actual ipod touch in as a track pad that you can pop out and use as a standalone pod when you don’t need the lappy?

  12. Tbh, I don’t see them releasing anything betw Thanksgiving and Xmas. Wait until MWSF.

    Look at the IBM X61, Vaio TZ and Toshiba R500. Arguably, that is a niche apple should soon invest in. I’ll go for a Vaio unless Apple comes up with a true ultraportable:

    – LED backlit widescreen w/ embeded iSight
    – 13 inch wide (or less)

    Keyboard and Trackpad
    – New gen Trackpad MultiTouch with “pinch” mode enabled among others
    – Bluetooth-style keyboard

    Processor, Memory
    – Low Voltage Core2Duo
    – 64 GIG SSD optional

    Size, shape and look
    – Black and grey alu finish case
    – Less than an inch thick
    – Weighs under 3 pounds

    This MacBook Nano could be real at last… Remember how long the iPhone rumour had been going before they finaly released it.
