Touch powered netbook

Posted:
in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
Here is an idea. Just an idea. How about a small 10" netbook that doesn't really have any power itself. Instead you snap a touch or an iphone into it where the trackpad would typically go. You then use that as the notebooks multitouch mouse. Apple adds a function to the iphone/touch software called "desktop mode" where when snapped into this netbook device (or add on) the touch automatically switches to desktop mode and you begin using it as a low powered notebook.



All the the processing and power are handled by the touch/iphone. The netbook is really just a screen and a keyboard with a bigger battery that can also help charge the touch/iphone.

    Not only not an original idea, people seem to keep having it on these boards, I believe it may be a drug induced one.

    No, I'm not lying though. Someone else might go looking for you, but I'm not going to. Search Google images, there has been mockups make and everything.
