MacBook update, not a new portable
Authored by: zellpharm on Jan 04, '08 09:05:00AM

Sorry but why does everyone think Apple will have a totally new "ultra portable" laptop to add to the line up. Seems to me they would just replace the MacBook with such a desirable model and leave the MacBook Pro alone the way it is. After all, they can't possibly reduce the thickness of a MacBook Pro as it's being reported and still keep all the fun bits they like to have on the Pro model. Makes more sense to update the MacBook since everything else in the product lines have shed the "plastic" housings and gone to aluminum...

The poll is not what you THINK will be released but what you MOST WANT to be released. I think that's why the "ultra-portable" is so high.

Although my vote went to movie rentals (and I would hope they would be higher quality) what I really want is another iPhone price drop and a 16 GB option. I don't think either of those would merit a major keynote intro, though, more like an on the side.

Movie rentals are fine if you live in the US. But any type of iTunes related new media will undoubtedly reach the rest of the world much later. Being in Montreal, I went for the ultra portable, but a straight forward iPhone for Canada (1st gen 2nd gen, whatever) would have been my pick had it been on the list, and with an unlimited data package! I am tired of paying $25 for every 4MB of data I use.
