Obviously I can't reveal my source, but he is an Apple employee in Cupertino and would not make something up. So the only way this is untrue is if it is distorted (telephone game) or a smokescreen. He told me that something is coming out with a lot of flash, and he thinks it was mentioned as an extension of the iPod touch project. He said that a "45gb" number was mentioned. He also says it's coming out at MacWorld (obv why I'm posting this here). I hadn't heard much about this "air" announcement or the ultraportable rumors being connected specifically to the iPod touch, so I thought this merited a new thread. This could mean a few things: multiple ultraportables if all rumors are true, that the MacBook Air is true (and this iPod touch stuff is a smokescreen), that the MacBook Air is a smokescreen, or who knows what else. 45gb was the only part that sounded weird to me (a larger touch, even if just in capacity, but also in screen size if that's the case, would be nice IMHO, probably with or without a keyboarded laptop form factor), but then I was thinking that would make it more affordable than the current 64gb solid state disks out there, and would mean Apple was not using any commercially-available SSD setup (or else has had a custom version made). Not sure why 45gb, maybe so they can say "40gb free" or something and allot 5 gigs to system and obligatory apps... thinking out loud here. Anyway, I've settled on the 45gb being plausible, because with Apple's NAND access they really could easily make their own SSD solution and probably save money as well as make the machine a more flexible form factor (as the existing ones are usually hard-drive-shaped, if not hard-drive-sized). Thoughts? Anyone else hear about this? Bueller?
