    There product line looks a little unbalanced now that every aluminum macbook is now a "pro". They now have 6 laptops with the "pro" label and one lonely "old and outdated" laptop to bare the just macbook title.

    So who else here is thinking a special event for Steve's return might be in the works, with the announcement of something new to bare the macbook name or replace it all together? That mythical magical 10" touch screen device perhaps?

    Just seems really odd to me.

    Pretty sure that soon, they will announce a new kind of laptop for the Macbook line.

    Who knows... netbooks?

    I really doubt a netbook in the near future. The whole point of the WWDC is to allow developers to spend time with other devs and improve their skills while working on and with the new products. It would make little sense to release a tablet soon and then expect developers to create applications for it. Maybe next year...

    Or something like more Macbook airs
    I am thinking they are going to slowly creep into the netbook market.

    The white plastic cheap ones are the macbooks now.

    I think they are going to make maybe a higher end plastic one?

    I think they'll be going into the netbook market sometime.

    To tell the truth, I think the only reason is because so many people get one just to install OS X on it.

    That's just my two cents, though.

    touch screen too?

    Maybe they will add another line Macbook Touch?

    So it will be.. Macbook, Macbook Touch, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro ?
