    SO many are thinking that the new MacBook will be called MacBook Air because of the banner probally because it so light.So what do you think will be in the Macbook Air

    9to5mac thinks that it would be called the MacBook Air, so the name has to be right.

    I think Macbook Air sounds kinda stupid. Macbook mini, macbook lite, macbook nano, macbook just about anything other than air.

    What if Apple is launching something like its own nationwide wireless network (wifi, not cell), ties into .mac, iphone, itouch etc? Possibly the technology is easily rolled to other countries and that is part of the reason why the foreign press has been invited.

    Pure speculation on my part. I have no "inside sources" or a deep throat.

    I think the name is stupid. But then again I hated the name Macbook when I heard it and thought Apple would never use that name so what do I know? :eek:

    How about "AIRBOOK"

    Since there is Airtunes, Airport, Airbook would be a possible name...

    If not this is refering to AirTV...

    Just speculation.

    I actually kind of dig the name MacBook Air. I can't wait to hear Steve announce the details.

    Does Apple own a nationwide wireless network? Im confused. :confused: :eek:

    Just kidding.

    And .mac is still partially broken for Leopard. Hopefully they will announce another .mac upgrade at Macworld.

    No, they don't but I believe that the bidding for the analog bandwidth that is going to open up once all of the TV stations goes digital is happening soon.

    I doubt that this is going to come to pass, but, just a thought.

    To me, MacBook Air sounds like a Nike lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Thats a ridiculous name. naming a laptop with the word air just doesnt seem to fit, even if it is as light as a sheet of paper...

    The chair of the FCC talked earlier this week about the big push forward the US will see this year in digitizing the nation with the 700 mHz as well as WiMax and the digital conversion of TV stations. He wants true broadband access across the country and he says that 200 kbps is NOT broadband and new rules will be coming down the pipeline soon to force companies to up their network speeds and access.

    macbook air. may sound stupid, but as mentioned before we've gotten used to names and branding before as they make big marketing pushes.

    with the air part, does nike air sound stupid? nike air max? nike air jordan? nike air (insert almost any name here)? i think there is a legitimate possibility for an apple product named with air in it

    AirMac would be more fitting, but MacBook Air will be it's name, if such an item exists.

    Somehow its just doesn't sound like a good name for a laptop. Maybe the whole "There's something in the air" is relevant to the [insert feeling here] there is going to be after a new product(s) is/are presented. My thoughts only.Im still anxious to see what EL Jobso has for us fanboys!
