If the TiBook wasn't so damn wide...it would be perfect for bringing with you. The iBook is great (what I currently use), but a real sub-notebook would be perfect.Originally posted by cb911
a subnotebook would be cool, then i could just get a PowerMac instead of my TiBook and have the subnotebook for when i'm on the run.
That would be nice.A guy I know at apple Japan confirmed that there is a sub notebook in the making, and it will be released first in the Japan market at Tokyo MacWorld. He said the Japan leads the world in laptop sales, and that it would be offered here for a month beofore released worldwide.
This makes sense, as Japan is truly a country of pedestrians, and need real portablilty. Most Americans throw their laptops into their cars and take off, whereas Japanese really walk around all day. The current ibooks are much too heavy to carry around on a routine basis.
I cant wait to get my sub!!!!!!!
Of course it dooes not run OS X...but fujitsu's p series notebooks are kinda cool. The Sony that was photoshopped for the PowerBook Duo Pic in question is tiny. It has like a 6" screen. It is too small to use for everyday purposes. The Sony SRX99 is small enough to be a sub-notebook...but powerful enough and big enough to be useful.Originally posted by isogonic
I suppose you have all seen the fake Apple Sub/Pad pics on thinksecret and spymac. Whoever made the pic seems to know want I want in a portable, unlike Apple (so far). It seems to me that without an optical drive, a thickness of 1 inch and an OPTIONAL touch screen could keep the device within a reasonable price range.
