Hi all,

Two days ago I sold to a friend of mine my MBA (hoping the new one will come out next week). I was not sure of what I was doing but I did it anyway.
That night I had a light dinner and I went to sleep.
In the middle of my sleep I started dreaming about the new design of the macbook air. It's not just a RAM and nvidia bump. What's going to happen in the new generation is exciting, it's a revolution, at least in my dream.

I think my brain made a soup of all the rumors and opinion I read in the last 3-4 weeks. Plus that night, just before going to sleep I met a friend that was holding his pc laptop, it's one of this thick horrible HP with a nice swiveling touch screen (with win xp).

Well, in my dream the new air was only the nice screen. It was an ultra-ultra portable, just 13'' of fabulous glass screen, no keyboard and a beautiful aluminum back.This is tapered as the actual MBA but more accentuate, and keeps the glass screen at a slight higher angle that the actual MBA (and angle similar to the one of the aluminum wireless keyboard). The line angle (profile) has a rectangular section, similar to the new iphone, but tends to taper and become rounded in the area where the wrists rest.

No glass trackpad, it's all a trackpad (touch screen with momentum). On one side: one usb, mini dp and magsafe. That's it.

Basically a sort of big iPad running OS X.

The dream of every podium speaker, writer, reader, traveler, dreamer.

This would change the way you think at a laptop, now it is at 90, in my mind the future is at 30. Worked great for the ipad.

Eventually I woke up and I thought it wasn't possible to make something like this, but after a visit to ifixit and a carefull inspection of the photos of the ipad and mba i'm sure it's possible.

Don't kill me it was just a dream!

50 pictures of lolcats (the accepted currency of the Internet) say that Steve Jobs reads this and does it within 18 months.

I like this dream but will I like the price when it becomes reality?

did this dream include Google introducing their OS and hardware with included Gmail/Google Docs branding?? hahaha.

that's what it will take to see a full-blown Mac OSX tablet, otherwise jobs will continue to push further their app store and 'magical and revolutionary' toys at an unbelievable over-price.

So it'd be a 13" iPad running a normal version of Mac OSX:D?
