The crazy Apple rumour mill

The run up to Macworld in January is always crazy, but this year seems especially bad. I've been waiting for a replacement for the 12-inch Powerbook for a long time now, but the recent rumours of a sub-notebook seem to be almost believable in view of other developments like the amazing success of the Asus Eee PC, and of course, the iPhone.


Now we have pictures, or rather a picture, probably the first in a long line of fake images purporting to show the rumoured sub-notebook. But fake or not, it has yet again wet my appetite for a proper replacement to my faithful 12-inch Powerbook. So I'm already looking at my hardware budget in a new light, thinking about how to squeeze a new sub-notebook in there, despite the Blackbook I bought in October. Apple, you've got at least one customer waiting...

Update: We got our a sub-notebook, but not this one...
