    supposedly BIG news forthcoming from Apple
    everything from Tablet Netbooks to solid sheet aluminum Macbook Pro's has been rumored and circulated

    chances are the Tablet is out (sadly)
    but a new high tech gesture controlled multi-touch track pad (half the size of the keyboard) could be the flavor of the week instead

    yeah the good news is that if reports are correct that Apple is intending to hit the market at an "aggressive" price point, then we might see $800 MB's ....... and/or $1500 MBP's

    +dual GPU's
    =an all-glass gesture trackpad (with no buttons for right or left click)
    -no blu-ray or support for it
    +and a new single-sheet aluminum cast

    -prices remain unchanged

    to be honest, I'm not too impressed
    (tucks cash back into wallet)

    My review, posted elsewhere:

    I wouldn't get too excited about it... it mostly seems to be an experiment in casing manufacture. And the glare on that glass screen would drive me nuts!

    Also, you can't trust the designer: he thinks it's made of alliuminium, which- as far as I know- doesn't even exist.


    Oh, yeah, and it seems to only come in 13in display so far.

    15" Macbook Pro

    the pic above is a 15" MBP

    I think I'm going to grab one of the matte-screen last-gen MBP's
    that conveniently marked down about $800 overnight

    MacAuthority has a 17" for $1699 ... but it's only a 2.4ghz C2D / 160gbHDD / Glossy

    Ah. okay. turds come in 13"" and 15". got it.

    Notice also that there's no firewire, which means Jobs just punched his videocam users in the face.
