Apple patent for Ultraportable MacBook docking in iMac-like base station

Apple patent for Ultraportable MacBook docking in iMac-like base station

An Apple patent for an iMac-like docking station lends further credibility to the ongoing rumor that the company is set to announce an ultraportable notebook in the near future, possibly even at the upcoming MacWorld expo.  The patent (illustrated with this mockup image from Gizmodo) describes an base station with the same ports and connectivity as the current iMac, but with a large slot for the ultraportable MacBook to dock into on the side.  This would then allow for a full-sized keyboard, large screen and other permanent peripherals to be easily added.

 

Rumor: Apple entering ultra-portable fray again

Rumor: Apple entering ultra-portable fray again

AppleInsider is at it again pushing their theory of an ultra-portable MacBook configuration. They first predicted it would come shortly after the release of Leopard, now they are pushing that back to MacWorld in January.

They reckon the ultra-portable will lose its optical drive, be smaller than the 15” MBP and at least 50% lighter than the same. On top of that they say it will utilize NAND flash storage in the form of an SSD drive and it will use and LED backlit LCD, both of those primarily to save battery life and improve boot times.

Good-bye CES, hello Macworld – Live blogging the keynote

Good-bye CES, hello Macworld – Live blogging the keynote

My original plan was to leave Las Vegas on the 11:59 PM and arrive in San Francisco at 2 AM. That didn’t happen because I couldn’t wait to leave so late, so my flight was changed to 9PM instead. Well, I’ve arrived into San Francisco safely. It’s nearly 2AM and I can’t sleep (not that expect to get any sleep anyways).

So what’s up tomorrow morning? I’ll live blog the pre-event…then live blog Steve Jobs keynote, giving you BLOW-by-BLOW coverage. The party starts at 09:00 AM and ends at 11:00 AM. Don’t miss it!
