I’d like to see a new MacBook Pro. The MacBook I have works just fine, but the hard drive is small, it’s heavy, and frankly, it gets really dirty really fast (and I use enough baby wipes on my 8 month old, thank you very much). There’s lots of rumors and speculation. I previously conjectured on what I called a “MacBook Touch“, and while I want it, I have to say it seems a lot less likely (despite continuous rumors).
I also don’t think they’re doing WiMax, unless AT&T is about to announce WiMax, which I doubt. It’s just a big gamble on a very big tech that is way too “out there” in my eyes. Jobs makes amazing products, and makes some big bets along the way, but this one seems illogical. So if “MacBook Air” really means something, my guess is it’s either (a) a very lightweight laptop or (b) a laptop with AT&T Edge services built-in.
But remember – “something in the air” could just as easily refer to direct-to-iPhone movie rentals…
Mark Evans is waiting for the iPhone “A” edition. Wait for it… Wait for it… No? Don’t have it? It’s the iPhone, eh? Hahahaha. Sorry, but I’m Canadian, I can do those things.
I won’t get to go to the keynote, although I may lurk around the Moscone with Robert and Patrick Scoble. Maybe we should sit in the Apple store and follow Engadget’s live coverage? I guess the other alternative is to chill in the Irish pub around the corner and play CrunchGear’s Steve Jobs Keynote Drinking Game.
No question that January is the most fun gadget month of the year.
