Macworld Rumour: Apple to release a super thin laptop

Macworld 2008

applelogo.pngAccording to a number of Apple fans, the company could be ready to announce a superthin and light portable Mac at Macworld 2008, which starts on 11th January.

This ultra-portable device (UMPC) could weigh in at under three pounds and measure between 15 and 18 millimetres thin.

Some speculate that it could come with a detachable external optical drive, which could be used to install software and use disc media, but would also minimise the weight and size of the main computer, which could then be more easily used on the move.

It could also contain components found on the existing MacBook line of notebooks, such as an iSight camera. It could also potentially sport a Flash drive.
