    Here's my list of predictions for what the hell this rumored Tablet/Netbook is supposed to be:

    Final Name
    • TouchBook
    • iPad
    • MacBook Touch


    Design
    • Design very similar to that of a contemporary iMac. Dark grey metallic surface, with black glass finish. The apple logo appears on the back of it, and glows.
    • iSight camera built-in to the front side
    • Able to be supported by a stand, for static/casual use, or video watching.
    • Vertical Bar-shaped LED's on the top of the front-side indicate Battery + charging status, and WiFi/3G usage.
    • Power/Sleep button + Headphone Jack on the top of the device, similar to the iPhone's.
    • Speakers on the bottom.
    • 3 USB Ports on the bottom of the device. (You'll see why)
    • No Disc Drive, or SD Ports.
    • Support for USB Mice & Keyboards (Can be used as a small desktop).

    Hardware
    • Generic Dual-Core Intel CPU (Possibly 800-950MHz)
    • NVidia Tegra GPU
    • Two different models.
    • 1GB RAM (2GB for higher-end model)
    • 80GB HD (120GB for higher-end model)
    • 1280x800 display.

    Yeah, that's what I would assume, too. Except the glowing Apple Logo. I don't think they'll do that.

    I can't imagine 3 USB ports, when my 15" MBP unibody taunts me with its lowly two.

    Everything else seems plausible, if not likely.

    Understandable. 1 seems fine.

    Only 1 USB Port? Hell no. I would hate that.

    You could always attach a USB hub to that 1 port and turn it into four, though!

    Your predictions seem spot-on, although I will not be buying one if and when they are released, considering the tablet rumors say they're going to be priced about the same as an average notebook. If I could afford one, I still wouldn't buy it -then I could get a Macbook instead!

    You should also add what operating system you think it will run (Mac OS X or iPhone OS X) to the OP.

    im not the OP but i would think Mac OS X considering he thinks it would be intel processors at a decent speed. and also given the ram and hard drive, a simple ipod/phone OS wouldnt ever need that type of capabilities, unless of course apple makes a brand new tablet OS, which would probably be a combination of the two (semi-likely?) lol just my opinion though

    OP's predictions look spot on, minus the glowing apple.

    Here is what I think the final product will/should look like: linkage
