3G packing Apple Macbook on the way?

Apple may be looking to release a 3G enabled version of its popular Macbook laptop range.

A patent application uncovered by Patently Apple goes into significant depth as to how “multi-band cellular telephone antenna and…multi-band wireless local area network antenna” could both feature within the same machine.

The patent was part of a batch that was granted alongside ideas for new iPod Touch and iMac hardware.

Whilst 3G-touting laptops aren’t all that unusual these days, it’s the first time we’ve seen cellular tech within an Apple portable computer. With the MacBook Air well overdue a revamp, don’t be too surprised if a 3G web connection tops the list of specs for any forthcoming super-slim Air models Apple may have in the pipeline.
