    I am just posting this because I don't see anyone talking about it. It's probably the wrong place to put it, (moderator please move or delete if necessary.) This is however, some of the best detail on the upcoming releases from Apple I have seen yet and needs to be disseminated.

    My take on this is:

    Five products
    - 2 Macbooks (aluminum black & white versions)
    - Mac Mini turns into Mac Nano (also aluminum)
    - Apple TV goes aluminum (it's the only plastic one left)
    - The long rumored Macbook Nano (also aluminum)

    This would complete the entire transition of the line from the plastic to aluminum and glass, update the last two products that haven't seen a serious update for a long time and stuff up the 12" hole in their laptop line-up.

    There are lots of other scenarios though... anyone?

    This would be awesome :eek::D:eek:
    If true, I hope there is no "blackbook tax" this time...

    That would be awesome if it turned out like that!
    I hope the nanobook will have a hybrid drive or something, and amazing battery life!

    even more room for a mid-sized model

    As parts shrink letting the mini become the nano, there is even more room in the product line for a "super-mini", a user serviceable mini with 2 expansion slots and replaceable internal hard drive (if not space for 2). The point: a gamer's mac.

    The Mac gaming market will always be marginalized as long as the hard core user is excluded. Provide a model to fill their needs and I predict it will satisfy many more fringe markets: lightweight servers, expert switchers, etc.

    I like the idea of the Mac Nano and the Mac Gamer! Good call.

    I would really like to see a form factor change for the MacBook Pro before the MacBook. The MBP form factor has been around for 4 years now (back to the first aluminum PowerBook. It is most excellent, but it needs a user replaceable hard drive! And how about HD screen in the 15"?

    I could see the revised MBP with the MB Thin rolling out together. I just doubt that will be out before the holidays...
