    If its got a core 2 duo and NIVIDA graphics I would gladly pay $800 for a 9.7" tablet! oh and it has to run OSX, no mobile OSX.

    Also $800 does put it a little out of netbook price range.

    Yeah, but maybe it'll have the nVidia Ion graphics card. I would gladly trade up my iPod for it if that's the case, along with my current netbook/Hackintosh.

    Anyone who pays over $400 for a netbook is an idiot.

    Over $400 starts to go into the 'laptop' range.

    Do you think all the camera Apple bought will be made for this netbook and not for the iPt3G?

    It wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    I'm with JimBeam. A Core 2 Duo paired with true OSX would make it worth it. $800 is steep, but It could be a really cool piece of tech.

    Yeah, for sure. Core 2 Duo, and nVidia graphics, the 800 dollars will be MORE than worth it, also it would be THE MOST powerful netbook on the market.

    which sort of justifies it for me.
