    Sources? That's also looks like a cheap Chinese knockoff to me. Or even photoshopped.

    Hideous? I guess you reckon the MBP designs are also hideous then..

    Hideous? Not particularly. Oddly proportioned? Yes.

    :p Exactly.

    Watch people eat their words when Jobs unveils it…

    this only resembles a MBP in terms of materials and colors used. the hinges are a bad and terrible design. and the proportions throw everything off.

    No chance. iPad is what everyone needs. Not any type of netbook. Steve has spoken...

    Besides, no one can produce 10" OLED in required numbers these days. There aren't even scaled production lines for these size of screens. Everything is in smartphone size production and even this hasn't capacity to nearly serve the iPhone demand. It still will be a long time off before we see OLED from Apple - as much we want it and Steve may want it.

    People were jumping off the building trying to bring you this good news.

    It would be pretty hypocritical on Steve Jobs' behalf to claim that netbooks were inferior products during the iPad keynote then launch netbooks months later.

    Your Steve, whoever he is indeed spoken. Apparently, iPad is not what everybody wants.

    If you look closely, you can make out the name of the new model: MacBook Indistinct Smudge.

    You wouldn't know it if you went to an Apple store. Never seen anything like it. Seems everyone leaves with one. What they are doing with it is beyond me, but they are selling!

    Why post a rumor without source link ?

    Why post it in the MacBook Pro forum ?

    Why ?

    It's clearly a fake image. Look at the aliasing all around the edges of the "netbook." Photoshopped, and not even a good job of it at that.

    Plus, the iPad is Apple's netbook, for all intents and purposes. There would be no reason for them to release something like this. None at all. Not happening.

    Probably fake.

    Interesting concept, nonetheless.
