    I won't go on about how crazy I think the negative bashing is on the MacBook Air.........

    First, I do wonder this.... Should we rule out the possibility that Apple will unleash TWO levels of the Air? Just as they have the MacBook and MacBook Pro, why not a "MacBook Air Pro"? Ramped up guts, perhaps even coming in other sizes perhaps with a thin bezel and keyboard up to the edge.

    Is this not a possibility to you?

    Secondly, when I watched the Keynote, at the end Steve seemed to put stronger than normal emphasis with the "we're only 2 weeks into 2008 and look what we've already come up with". This whole little section of the keynote really struck me. He was saying something here. I took it as a strong statement that this will not be a normal year for Apple.

    I'm personally thrilled with MacBook Air but, (call me crazy), I'm not ruling out the possibility of more Air versons.

    Because better specs means more heat, something they can't have much more of, and making room for those specs means a larger shell, making the concept of the MBA completely pointless. A Macbook is an MBA Pro.

    Wouldn't a redesigned MBP be more likely than a MBA-P?

    A Pro level Air would be ridiculously expensive and make little sense with today's mainstream tech.

    You are right. MBP-Air would be ridiculous and unwanted by many. MBP is all about more power on the go.

    I do think that there are some more major things to come soon to the rest of their computers. However i do not think they would ever make a macbook air pro. thats to many computers when they already have 2 other laptops that out preform it.

    Personally i believe they will be introducing colors soon. The nano colors on their macbooks and possibly their macbook pro lines. Your choice your shell/case. as well as a slight change to the macbook pro lines. I just hope they dont add a black keyboard that doesnt match like the air. sheesh

    my 2 cents

    I agree the OP is being too optimistic. However I am sure you meant 200Mhz faster, not 2Ghz.:)

    I think the colours idea is good but I don't think they'll introduce it to the MacBook Pro. I think if colours were introduced, it would be the Nano colours for the MacBook and the iPod Classic Colours (Black and silver) for the MacBook Pro.

    What do others think?

    I agree colors on the MacBook Pro
