I sincerely hope there isn't an ultraportable Mac unveiled.

    It will go nuts anyway because it isn't a Mac Pro in a 10" tablet/ whatever other things people want.

    I would literally die of laughter if instead of the new ultraportable or MacBook Air or whatever it is, they released the MacBook Sock ™.

    Man I wish I'd been on the MacRumors forums when Apple announced the iPod Socks - I would love to have seen the reaction ... :D

    Honestly I don't think apple CAN release a new product that will satisfy everyone on these forums. Some people want a new product while others want an upgraded/updated one. No matter what happens there will be some people who will be a little upset, but hey, thats life.

    Some people can't be happy with what they have. I personally love and will always love my current Santa Rosa Macbook Pro. It is my first Mac and has served me beyond faithfully (for 3 weeks...) All in all though, despite what comes out, I am happy. I mean what is it going to offer that mine can't do? Start word 3 milliseconds faster. Damn, I should have waited to upgrade. Those 3 milliseconds count sooo much (if you are a theoretical physicist)

    If people want an Ultra-Portable, there is nothing like the EEE PC. Unless Apple has a great price point, AND can do things that the EEE PC can't do, like run pro apps, you have to be part retarded to care for one.

    Apple's will look better though :(

    I believe to get a great idea of what an Ultra Portable Apple would have in it is look at the x60-61 Lenovo (thinkpad).

    Yep, same b!tching and moaning, same whining and complaining, same "screw apple I'm leaving going to windoze", same "XXXXX vs Dell XXXXX" threads, you name it, damned if Apple does, and damned if they don't.

    You mean that he was the actual creator of Windows and Bill Gates is just a front man filtering all that MS money to Jobs via Cayman Islands Bank?

    Make it really nice looking, but with a Core Solo, 1gb RAM ceiling and a GMA with 32mb shared memory. I'm sure we'd all love to see that.

    Speak for yourself. If this thing doesn't have a secret brand new processor then its a worthless piece of ****.

    I'm just hoping Steve walks onto the stage with an Alien and tells us how they are partnering up to design higher forms of computing. I know their out there. :cool:

    I guess the Ultra Portable is going to have Quad Core with SLi 8800 GTX 512 video cards. So I can't wait til tomorrow!

    I'd like to see Powerbooks and iBooks re-introduced.

    Value of my MacBook would skyrocket :D

    I agree that the EEE PC is a good size, but it seems it has a very limited OS. I personally guarantee that Apple won't release any MacBook variation without a true OSX. ;) Without the ability to run their regular apps, the market will never snap it up with as much as gusto. I have half a dozen traveling photojournalist friends who refuse to let go of their 12" powerbooks. They're holding their breath that this will finally be a mobile replacement worthy of upgrading to.
