More ultra-portable rumours...

Another round of ultra-portable rumours have started, talking about the long predicted release of a replacement for the 12-inch Powerbook.
...the new notebook is said to be half as thick, or something between 0.6 and 0.7 inches. It will also be, by far, the lightest computer Apple ever released, at less than 3 pounds. - MacScoop
Along with everyone else I've been waiting for something "much cooler" and talking about a replacement for the 12-inch since just after the Macworld keynote in January 2006.

Of course the announcement of the iPhone a year later at Macworld in 2007 started rumours about a possible touch screen model, but I'm writing those of as wishful thinking. I'm going to be real happy with an ultra-light ultra-portable, especially if it really is Flash based and does away with the Hard Disk entirely.

Of course I've been saying that for a year and a half now, and I'm still typing this blog post on my aging 12-inch Powerbook. So I'm not holding my breath...
