    some websites say that the tablet will have a 2.13 GHz intel core 2 duo processor and 2GB of RAM and will cost 700 bucks. Is it possible for a mac to be that cheap with those specs? Will it have OS X Snow Leopard or iPhone OS or a cross between Snow Leopard and iPhone OS?

    If it has an Intel processor, it will run OS X. But I doubt that it will be that cheap with those specs.

    Because the Macbook (white plastic) is more expensive for lesser specs...

    True. Thats still not a lot of specs to make a call. If its DDR2 memory and intigrated intel graphics or similar with a small hard drive like the ipod touch that could bring the price down.

    bla! Why do I care anyway? Just another stupid rumor, with nothing to back it up. I'm just going to pretend this thing is never coming (and it most likely is not) and save my judgment for when I actually see this thing in real life.

    I agree. I don't believe its coming.

    Also, your right; it could have a faster processor, but have a suckish graphics card, and a small harddrive.

    Tablet rumor is like 6 years old now. Every year its the same crap "oh its coming, it coming" and nothing ever comes. Still, this years rumor mill is running full steam and the screen size come from a reliable source, they also leaked the iphone screens, but, they could just be for a tiny macbook.

    Apple should just make another Apple newton and be done with it. I want an Apple newton...

    It had handwriting recognition, copy and paste, image creator, drag and drop interface, calendar, etc. and it's over 11 years old. It had copy and paste before the iPhone! But it's like halfway to a tablet. It didn't run OS X, and I don't think any tablet would run OS X, but more like an expanded version of the iPhone OS. But it would support multitasking and would look different than the iPhone OS. Hmmm... they should just use the Chrome OS.
