MacBook Touch coming soon!?!?

Tuesday, July 22, 2008 by Dave Winer.

There's much speculation about a refresh on Apple's laptop line, a permanent thread in tech bloggerland, we've been waiting for it for a long time. Here's my bet. The MacBook Air was the leading edge of a new form factor at Apple, the low-end of a new lineup of super-thin laptops.  Permalink to this paragraph

In the next round you'll see one with two or three USB ports and a removable battery as well as a tablet version. Both will run the iPhone software at least as an option. The tablet might run it as its only option.  Permalink to this paragraph

Mike & Nik will have what they want but it won't cost $200. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph

BTW, my guess is they extrapolated the same thing, and their challenge is a clever way of getting an I Told You So when Apple announces the tablet MacBook Touch™ in Sept.  Permalink to this paragraph
