    Here it is. The MacBook Mini... concept. A Russian site decided to do a little wishful thinking in the hopes that maybe Apple would be listening. Definitely droolworthy. Here is the original Gizmodo article.

    • 1280 x 768 pixel with LED backlighting.
    • NVIDIA MCP79
    • Intel Atom Z740 1.83GHz with 1MB L2 cache.
    • 2GB DDR3-800.
    • NVIDIA GeForce 9400M
    • 64GB Solid State Drive.
    • Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n
    • 1 x USB 2.0
    • 1 x Mini Display Port

    an atom processor is reserved for netbooks, in my case I wont bother buying one of this if ever since I choose my iphone over a netbook when browsing on malls

    still pretty sleek design if ever true

    saw this mockup on 9 to 5 mac...

    it's a good mockup

    not feasible for apple since their stand on Netbooks is pretty firm

    did I mention it was a mockup???

    It's no better than the Air which has way more juice than a lowly atom proc.

    Maybe that's exactly the point of a netbook? Why would they put an exact specs or higher compared to the Air?

    I think the netbooks are here to stay. They may seem underpowered, but they have their own market. It's not supposed to be your main computer/portable.
