    Not in iBooks that's for sure (if it replaces the 12", then the 14" doesn't offer a display size sufficient to justify the price increase), maybe in the Powerbooks to replace the 12", but then there wouldn't be any "pro-level" "ultra" portable notebook.



    What about new digital lifestyle appliance or something?

    Exactly what I thought of when writing my reply, but then a little red light started flickering, i remembered about Jobs's "no tablet" thing, and switched to digital lifestyle appliance...

    A tablet would be nice though, but only if the target market is selected wisely. A 10.4" tablet running a cheap SoC PowerPC and a lite version of Mac OS X would be a best seller in education if priced at $500-$600...

    Please. Tablets are sooo 20th century.



    A 13.3" high-res display would make an ideal replacement for the current 12" powerbook which (imho) is not different enough from an iBook to justify the price.



    Drop a 1.6Ghz 970FX into the thing and I am hooked...

    Tablet PCs are sooooo 20th century. But now, imagine you're a student (maybe you are), you're messy, and always lose your notes (that's me I'm depicting here). Suppose you also want to protect nature and you're bored at wasting paper. I'm sure that then, you'd definitely love having a A5-size lightweight tablet that would replace your notebooks (add character recognition if you want) and books, and that would allow you to prepare your presentations, reports, and all that kind of stuff, everything with a freaking easy to use GUI... I think that's rather 21st century now!

    Well, I type faster than I write, so I'd rather use a subnotebook - which can do presentations just fine. Maybe others would like it, but I can't see myself using a tablet a lot. I'd bite if it was in the 100? range, but that's illusionary.
