    The touch screen era is now here. Before you know it.Apple will invent something that make the screen removable or turn the MBP to a tablet just like the HP lappy.

    Apple is quite obsessed with touch products.
    Oh wait, did I just figure that out?

    Well, if they are gonna do that, they should just get rid of the keyboard. And throw in a 3G chip while they're at it. And maybe use an SSD instead of a traditional hard drive. I wonder what they would call this device?

    IDK about you guys, but Apple's Mac line needs some serious love. The only updates they've been receiving are to keep them semi-competitive as far as Intel chips and ATI/Nvidia graphics go. I wouldn't be too surprised to see a touchscreen iMac, but the patent definitely says '10 inch' screen, so I'm not sure what is up there.

    But hey. We'll see.

    A touch screen notebook.. I'm pretending that my MacBook has a touch screen, it feels so weird.. I personally wouldn't want it.

    I think they might make a netbook tablet with, instead of styalus control, touch control. That would be pretty beast but not very practical.

    Considering "iBook" is already taken by a previous product, I predict they'll call it "iTouch".
    </sarcasm>

    And does any one else prefer the simple good ol' keyboard and mouse? They're precise, practical, and I hate trackpads for stuff like video editing and gaming..

    IMO they may do a iPad/Macbook hybrid, "the MacPad"
