More rumors of the MacBook Air are floating around, so here is what they say. According to Wired, the new laptop is supposed to be really thin, and shaped like a teardrop. Which means it is thicker at the top and thinner at the bottom, near the keyboard. The new laptop is supposed to use Apple's new scheme with aluminum & glass; silver on black. The new MacBook is expected to be without a CD/DVD drive, and possibly use solid-state storage. Think it's real? Tell us here.

That looks pretty {censored} pimp. Although impossibly thin. Look at the bottom of the first picture. My nephew's finger is thicker than that. (He's 5).

And I still think MacBook Air is a {CENSORED} STUPID ASS name.

So to do anything that requires a CD/DVD drive, you now need to purchase a seperate, external drive?

No thanks, probably the worst mistake they could have done. I know I hardly use my own drives, but they are there for a reason still...

The bottom pic looks fake to me. The trackpad is not proportioned to the screen at all, and that actually looks like a membrane keyboard (they likes of which you'd expect on a $25 See'n'spell, not a real computer). I also don't see any seams for the hinges on the display.


While MacBook Air might be a real product, I don't think that bottom picture is of a MacBook Air (if it exists).

they're photoshopped, read the full story.

Sadly, we dont have details on pricing, specs or availability. Expect reality to disagree with our photoshops.

Set your timezone, I live in California, which is GMT-8. So it's still a while off :)

I say fake. At least for the name MacBok Air. That could've been anyone with a customized Hackintosh.
Still, I the the ultra-thin notebook thing is VERY real. I just think it would be named Nano; since that name has become somewhat of a brand by itself.
