    Wouldn't be shocked if these things were true but I wouldn't be shocked if they weren't. I think those are pretty cool improvements though. The larger trackpad rumor seems legit considering how OSX Lion will be closely tied to the iOS platform.

    I can definitely see bigger trackpads on 15 and 17 inch, but 13 inch? Uhh.. good luck with that.

    I have no idea how they are going to make it lighter unless they use different materials or make it thinner like a lot thinner.

    So, optical drive is going away? ...
    We will see.

    I find this bit of speculation worrying. The thought of more complex (and thus less natural) gestures seems like a step in the wrong direction. Of course it is all a rumor, but the thought of Apple coming out with something like "swipe in an 'S' pattern to open Safari!" scares me. :eek:
