Netbook mac?

According to Macrumors.com
Dow Jones Newswire reports that Apple is indeed planning to launch a netbook computer with a touchscreen as soon as the 2nd half of this year. They cite "two people close to the situation" as sources.

The mini laptop computers will likely have monitor screens that are between 9.7-inches and 10-inches, one person, who declined to be named, said.


This adds credibility to yesterday's report that Apple had already placed orders for the screen with Taiwan-based Winktek.



Based on this new information, it appears that Apple is targeting a ~10" screen size for this Netbook. The addition of a multi-touch screen adds an interesting twist to the concept of a netbook which is traditionally a clamshell miniaturized laptop.



interesting, because Netbook (just one example) are generally viewed as cheapy laptops. so apple making one seems like the obvious thing to do (they have to) but at the same time apple computer are generally viewed as expensive or highend machines. can the two, expensive and netbook, mix?

what they should of done is made the original Apple Macbook Air a netbook and not the monstrosity it is now. I have gripes with the air, it's basically the G4 Cube. has no idea what it's supposed to be, a pro model or a consumer model.

i like the mini, i just don't like the cost. though maybe they've gone down in price on ebay now.
