MacWorld 2008: Subnotebook Rumor Revived
MacRumors claims the Apple subnotebook is real and will be announced at MacWorld 2008, now a week and a half away. Check out a possible spy pic at CrunchGear (watch for the cease and desist). A lot of the specs make sense, but one additional tidbit that keeps appearing is the lack of an optical drive.
An amusing thought: What do I use the optical drive on my MacBook for, most often? It’s watching DVDs and installing software.
Watching DVDs may fall by the wayside if watching movies via the iTunes Store gains traction. So could the omission of an optical drive be a slight nudge by Apple to get people to watch more video via the iTunes Store?
This will make even more sense if Apple announces video rentals in at the same Keynote.
As for MacWorld, I’ll be there, checking out the stuff as I did last year. Got to wave the Mac fanboy flag.
