I not sure when or where ( i think mac rumors) , i heard news of apple planing on releasing or showing a totally new product.

If any of you know about this, can you link me to the page to confirm I am not insane lol.

if the rumors were true, what do you guys think this may be?

i have my own personal thoughts about it and my idea might sound kind of silly but here goes nothing.

a laptop with no physical keyboard.
it is basically a laptop with a display on top and a touchscreen display on the bottom. the display will show a visual keyboard, where the user can adjust the type of language they desire. just like the iPhone if you hold down certain letters, a small panel will pop up near the letter and you can select special characters that looks similar to that letter. like a giant Nintendo ds? when you open photoshop, the bottom display will show color pallet, fonts, font size, all the hotkeys... etc... might be very useful.

i sound crazy right?

Apple's rumored to be releasing a new computer that comes in a few colors. Unfortunately, details are sparse but a few key specs have been leaked, I got them from a trusted friend in the industry- 12 in active-matrix TFT display, 800×600 pixel resolution, 366 MHz or 466 MHz PowerPC G3 processer and 24× tray-loading CD-ROM drive or 4× DVD-ROM drive!! OMG.

Sounds awesome! It'll be great for photoshop and video rendering. Count me in!

Acer already has a laptop which has two touch screens, the other one operating as a virtual keyboard.

Already exists; was a market failure.

I also heard Apple was going to release a new product called the iCar. It has one pedal that really a giant touch surface. It also has Siri to drive you places.

I heard something like that too... some product, at an unspecified time, will be released, with amazing new features.
