Rumour: New MacBook range to get aluminium shells and glass trackpads

Laptops / Notebooks

According to the latest Apple rumour (and no, it’s not about iPhones, but it’s strangely related) the next incarnation of MacBook notebooks could feature a MacBook Air-esque seamless aluminium case, and be fitted with a multi-touch glass trackpad.

It wouldn’t be surprising if the entry-level notebooks caught up in looks and functionality with the MacBook Pro and Air range, though it’s not immediately clear what purpose a including a glass trackpad would serve, other than making it seem like you’ve a mini iPhone interface below the keyboard.

These MacBooks could hit stores from late September onwards.
