    Hi,

    I think when the rumored Mac Book Mini comes out, perhaps threads with a title similar to this one will be written.

    The price for the Dell is $400 and something. I think a lot of people are expectant on the price the Mac Book Mini is going to have. I just hope it doesn't make a little hole in my pocket.

    Kind regards,

    I can't picture Apple selling at the $400 price point. If it's a 'netbook' it will be more like $700.

    $400 fat chance. Even the priciest ipod touch is more expensive. I think we'll be looking at somewhere between 800-900. Or they might surprise us with macbook air pricing. :p

    Hi,

    Thank you for your answer : ) !!!

    $700 may be a tad too expensive, but it all depends.

    I checked prices again on the Dell, and the 12" is
    $499

    Let's see what happens !!!

    Kind regards,

    Or, you could get a 12" g4 ibook or powerbook, max the ram out, and have a usable ultra portable now. And for, I daresay, less money than what apple will charge for the rumored tablet.

    An unsubsidized iPhone costs $999, according to my Rogers rep. I could see a MacBook net selling for around $700-800, but not any less than that. Not unless the theory that Apple will build in 3G and let AT&T subsidize it turns out to be true, anyway.

    If it really is a touch-screen, net-book-sized, iKindle-y thing...pray it even costs less than an Air.
