With MacWorld next month, the constant flood of rumors about a small professional notebook just won't stop. But we're starting to get wind about a new laptop for 'the rest of us' but not the super-slim pro model we've been reporting about.
This time around we're hearing that a new style of notebooks are being seen carried around the Cupertino headquarters. The new books are described as similar in size to the existing MacBooks, but thinner with a metallic sheen.
“Still, there has been no definitive evidence to link these sightings the company's sub-notebook project, which has been detailed (1, 2, 3) by well-respected sources over the past year and is due to culminate early next month with an introduction at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
Additionally, it should be noted that sightings of particular colors and enclosures at Apple ahead of a product's release are not always fail-safe indicators of that product's final appearance. Apple is also likely working on more slender consumer MacBooks, which could at times be confused with the upcoming sub-notebook.“
