Who's excited about Macworld Expo here!???!!

I certainly am!!! Rumors said: new iPhone (higher storage), new ultra-portable Mac, movie rentals, new MacBook Pro with big multi touch keypard (I'm buying one! keep you posted on how it goes!) and new Penryn processors, 1.1.3. software update for the iPhone (which includes GPS, video recording and other nice stuff), AppleTV software update and maybe Mac Nano (in time to replace Mac Mini, as in iPods?)

there were also rumors of updates for Mac Pro and XServe, but those happened this Tuesday, meaning, Apple has a LOT to unveil so they don't wait to this Tuesday!

Hope we can see really how Apple is "a year advanced than its compettion "
can't wait!
oh and of course, who doesn't love haikus?

Since Apple offloaded the new Mac Pro announcements pre-Macworld, there is something big in the works.

The question is, do we really need an ultra-portable Mac laptop with no optical drive?

No optical drive...eh.

I wouldn't mind seeing another machine the size of my 12" powerbook though.

I would go to the expo, but it is very expensive! almost $2000 to get you inside the keynote! with that I'm buying my MBP!

oh and did you saw/hear the latest rumors:
http://www.macrumors.com/mwsf/
This is an actual banner placed outside Moscone South
MacBook Air, ladies and gentlemen (I know not everybody likes the name but it makes sense and I like it!)

http://www.9to5mac.com/macbook-air-2453564654

- A slim notebook, but not a "sub notebook"
- 13.3" screen
- Not a "Pro" machine
- External Optical Drive
- It will be called the MacBook Air

So basically the iPod Nano of Macbooks?

Meh.....still interested in the form factor, but I have no need for one, and if I want a laptop I want a full-fledged laptop.

My brother is in the IT industry and will be there for the keynote. The lucky bastard. He'll get to witness the reality distortion field in person.

The new Apple Newton- full featured phone, UMPC, and digital studio with broadcast video receiver capabilities from iTunes direct.

www.newton.com

3.5" x 6.4" x 0.5"
Mac iPod-Leopard OS with multi-touch user interface
New Newton (they scrapped InkWell) handwriting recognition software
NAND flash- 60GB


Interesting netwon dot com redirects to apple's web site.

Hmmmm.
