    Netbook with a shrunken 11.6" MacBook Air chassis and the Intel Atom / nVidia ION guts of an HP Mini 311 for < $599.99

    Shame that it will never happen. :wtc:

    Steve Jobs has said multiple times that he will never put out a netbook... and apple will never compete in the netbook market. The parts that they put in netbooks are such that really don't make them worthwhile for apple to create.

    Actually, it wasn't Jobs that said that, those comments were from Tim Cook (COO) on an investor call:

    From: http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2009/04/22/live-blogging-apple-earnings/

    Jobs said: "We don’t know how to make a $500 computer that’s not a piece of junk, and our DNA will not let us ship that." He said that over a year ago and he never dismissed the entire idea of a netbook out of hand. In fact since that quote he's been reversing that position. Times change and so do market conditions.

    Do try to get your facts straight in the future.

    Oh ok. Just email Steve Jobs your idea. I'm sure he'll get right on it, just for you.

    JC is such a fucking douchebag. Instead of responding in an intelligent manner, he is so quick to try and call you out for being stupid.
