What would happen if an iPod Touch mated with a MacBook? According to AppleInsider, Apple is releasing a touchscreen laptop or tablet in October of 2008. Of course it’s still just a rumor, but a lot of people are very excited about finally getting their hands on a MacBook Touch.
MacBook Touch: Rumored Features
The “MacBook Touch” is rumored to have the following features:
- iPhone-like full-featured multi-touchscreen.
- Full version of Mac OS X. This might help explain why Apple bought chip design company P.A. Semi in April 2008.
- Slot-loading SuperDrive.
- Same accelerometer technology used in the iPod Touch and iPhone.
Apple’s Promised Product Transition
AppleInsider also reports that at the most recent earnings talk, Apple promised a product transition by the end of September with “technologies and features that others can’t match.”
Is a touchscreen laptop the “product transition” Apple was talking about? We can’t wait for more details to emerge that either confirm or negate this juicy rumor.
