Apple’s multi-touch Newton tablet will be MIA at this year’s Macworld Keynote but in its place might be the MacBook Air. Yes sir, MacRumors claimed to have heard various whispers that Steve Jobs will introduce the MacBook Air. Take this information for what it’s worth, because Apple has been known to send out false hardware specs and design info.
The MacBook Air is said to sport a 13.3-inch screen, has an external optical drive, sporting a slim notebook form factor. The site stressed that the MacBook Air is NOT a sub notebook. It’s possible that Apple will embed WiMax into the new device.
If this info is remotely true, I know for sure I’m getting one! Lugging around my MacBook Pro this past year has been quit painful on my back and shoulder. It’s time for some Air baby.
