I too am dismissive of this rumour, it implies that a multi-billion dollar electronic company full of chip designers and other talented engineers, would be incapable of creating internally a custom motherboard and hardware for a single test machine.
Oh it was more than just talk, Apple did produce several such machines, albeit with the x86 chip on a separate daughterboard which plugged into the Mac's main motherboard. The Power Macintosh 6100/66 DOS Compatible was one such machine, search for DOS in Apple's tech spec section for other examples.
I'm puzzled by this statement; Macbook Airs have 80211n and Bluetooth built in, isn't that wireless connectivity? As for integrated 3G or 4G, nice idea but I don't want it at the expense of a thicker or heavier Macbook Air. USB modem sticks are tiny, will sticking one in the bag alongside the Macbook Air really break your back? You can also use the Bluetooth or wifi wireless connectivity to tether to your smartphone. Even many ordinary phones with Bluetooth allow...
A degree in electronics in 1899, at a time when the computer TV and radio were yet to be invented??!! Sounds suspect to me...
GM would be dead now were it not for it being effectively bailed out by the US Treasury ie US Government. The Canadian Government haven't bailed out Nortel and I don't see them bailing out RIM. The world can live without a one trick pony mobile company that's already flogged its horse to death.
I'm surprised the optical drive hasn't already disappeared from the Macbook Pro line when the Macbook Air Superdrive has been available for some years now. Is there an advantage to making a Thunderbolt version of this Superdrive? I presume that the writing of tracks to the disc is now the limiting factor for DVDs and not the speed of the interface, even for the current USB version.
Have you been to a hospital and been amazed at how many ill people are there? Doctors troubleshooting health problems all day long every day, there are so many people you need to take an appointment. In my opinion they need to work on the human body's reliability first.
I wonder if all the posters clamouring for a 15 inch MBA realise that the current 13 inch MBA has the same screen resolution as the current standard 15 inch Macbook Pro? I myself went from a 15 inch Powerbook g4 with 1280 x 800 screen resolution to a 13 inch Unibody Macbook with the same screen resolution and not noticed any major difference in usability, but maybe my eyes are very good!
They're not even the first to market with such an idea, they seem to have forgotten about the Toshiba Libretto W100 and its "limited availability": http://us.toshiba.com/computers/laptops/libretto
Are you one of the three suspects who broke into the San Diego Apple Store the other day? It seems piracy didn't work out as planned, especially for the guy now in the morgue.
