RUMOUR: MacBook Mini pictures & specs
Some very fishy imagery of a 10.4-inch MacBook Mini is bouncing around the intertubes after publication of the details in a Russian magazine. The two things to bear in my mind before you get too excited are that 1) the images look a little on the artificial side and 2) it is April Fool’s day on Wednesday. That said, indulge your eyes and inner geek:
- 10.4″ WXGA display.
- 1280 x 768 pixel with LED backlighting.
- NVIDIA MCP79
- Intel Atom Z740 1.83GHz with 1MB L2 cache.
- 2GB DDR3-800.
- NVIDIA GeForce 9400M
- 64GB Solid State Drive.
- Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n
- 1 x USB 2.0
- 1 x Mini Display Port
- Battery Li-Ion 5100mA
I like the look of the LED backlighting, the connectivity, high-end Atom, good chunk of RAM and the SSD is good enough to me too. What I find suspicious, though, is that that’s exactly what you’d expect. There are no surprises at all and that’s very un-Apple. There’s usually either a glaring omission or a stroke of genius. This MacBook Mini has neither.
If indeed this is true, then the word is $899 some time this year.
