    I'm really getting a laugh out of all the rampant Apple fanbois over on Gizmodo that are spraying their shorts over this retarded bullshit:

    [​IMG]


    That, my friends, is the MOST WORTHLESS PORTABLE EVER!

    I love Apple and I love Apple products, but sack riding tablet fanbois are retarded and they just haven't thought it through. Tablets SUUUUUUUUCK except for specialized applications and not having a legit keyboard on a fucking laptop is the dumbest idea EVER.

    While I do believe that Apple is developing a larger MID/UMP touch screen device (reportedly in production now with Quanta in China) I'm 99.9999% certain that it will NOT be a large laptop sized device.

    Yup.

    You can tell as the top of the first image has a diagonal line going across it for the grey and black colors of the border, which wouldn't be the case if it was a real photo (ie. it would be more gradual and less direct).

    They won a Macworld award for new product at Macworld 2007 but then didn't start shipping til Macworld this year and were hoping to win another award for the same thing. So you want to win a new product award because you couldn't ship a product for a whole year? :rofl:

    What part of "NOT made by Apple" is baffling to you? That's a niche product from a niche vendor for a niche market which is a world of difference apart from Apple offering the same thing as a mainstream product.

    Seriously, you fail. :ugh:

    What is the purpose of a 13" laptop with no keyboard. Who needs touchscreen for everyday use? Nooooooooooo one.

    The new apple keyboard is so small. I could see them adding a pop out stand in the back so it can be propped up. And it would probably have keyboard/mouse connections and bluetooth.

    I think it'd be pretty sweet.

    Cool, I'm sure the market for transformer style tablet MacOS laptops with touch screens and BT wireless keyboard/mouse things is in the dozens of people. Sounds like a great value proposition. :mamoru:

    tablets = waste for 90% of the people out there.
    Apple tablets = 100% waste.

    Apple will not be stupid enough to even consider selling a tablet.
