People on this forum and elsewhere are talking about a possible product called the "iBook Nano." I have yet to find a prototype design sketch anywhere. Would anyone with mad-skills like to show Mac Rumors what they want in an iBook Nano? I'd love to see.

This sounds like an interesting project and topic/thread, sure, but when I am going to have some more free time. I would like to see what others have on their mind too.

A British magazine called Stuff has a picture of an ibook nano in its current issue. Perhaps you can find it on the web.

Dreadful, it even had an optical drive...it looked awful...

Here's one I quickly did a few days ago. The concept is where the keyboard and touchpad were is now one big touch-screen as well as the main screen (or not if too spendy). The first, full multi-touch computer. Expanding on the idea is that this could also be used with your "main" Mac as an extension as a wireless touch tablet. It would have flash-based memory as well, no hard drive. I would think it would be maybe 10-12" display, little smaller than the 12" Powerbook but much thinner.

How many here would like to see the keyboard borrowed from the Motorola Razor?

iBook, I thought that moniker had been laid to rest.

i thought that keyboard was ghastly, perfect example of form over function.

LOL! Geesus, I didn't even notice the OP date! No wonder my dust allergies were acting up! :p

That be terrible. Do you realize how hard the keys were to press on the Razr? They were also so slippery. I would NEVER predict seeing that on a computer, let alone an Apple computer.

Just the profile itself. I am looking at my MBP keyboard and the keys occupy precious height. We know the ultra-thin screens exist from Samsung. You've seen flat speakers and I would settle for an external optical. Seems the keyboard needs to go on a diet.

Afterthought: Sealed and spill-proof laptop.

Despite not being the best quality mockup, I think this is much like what we'll see when 10.6 comes out.

They've already proved the dual screen situation works well, look at the success of the Nintendo DS.
