"With the Mac maker set to release a new product, the rumor mill is churning away. Will it be a new touch-screen iPod? Or could it be a new laptop, tablet PC, media center or smart phone?


Midmorning Pacific Time, Tuesday, Feb. 28, Apple Computer is hosting a presentation at its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. Writers from CNET News.com and CNET Reviews will post complete information here as soon as it's available."

Hm I wonder...probably a new Powermac...or perhaps a ibook or smaller macbok pro?

Pfffffffff
Mac tries to get out of the water with touch screen, guess what? Touch screens already exist for home use, you can buy them online, this is not something new, and who wants a laptop that cannot play PC Games and just don't work as a regular OS.

Touch screen iPod means that the whole front face of the iPod will be the screen and the click wheel will be touch screen based an when you touch the screen there is an overlay of the click wheel which dissappears after a few seconds or so I've heard so honestly emmanuel, what the hell are you talking about? Who here wouldnt want an iPod video with a 2.5x~3x larger screen thats a touch screen? (I mean instead of your iPod, not necessarily if you would upgrade FROM a video iPod to this new one )

If they're going to release something spectacular, I'd say it's MacOS for the PC...

It makes sense that the Mini was next, it saves on tooling.
The Mac Mini, the iMac and the MacBookPro are all laptop based Apples.
That is why they are so small and thin.
I'm curious to see what their workstations will be like.
There will be no heat or space limitations.

I'm hoping it's either the touchscreen Ipod, which may not be that far fetched since Ipod sales have fizzled since Christmas, or OSX for PC!!! I'm actually hoping it's OSX for the PC, though this is probably never going to happen.

Overclocking is a pathway to many abilities, some considered to be unnatural
Large increases in cost with questionable increases in performance can be tolerated only in race horses and women.

That would be wierd, I live on both platforms about equally, knowing Mac OSX is in my PC would just "feel wierd".

The real difference between Wintels and Mac isn't because of their processors.
It's the software-hardware-user interface that makes them different.
