Macbook touch rumor makes me jump

leave a comment »

Following the Apple keynote in June announcing the iPhone 3G, there is a hint that a mystery product will be announced in the upcoming Apple Keynote in September, and that might just be the oh-so-mighty touchscreen tablet.

If the rumor on Gizmodo is true, then I might save up and get that instead of the Macbook pro which I always wanted. Touch screens just have (almost) infinite possibilities and if this thing comes out it is definitely on my buy list.

From 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.

Hmm… low price huh, I wonder what low means.

Great photo from Gizmodo.
