MacBook Mini mockup: Fan fake or the real deal?
A Russian publication printed a photo, detailed specs, and pricing for a new Apple MacBook Mini. But it all just looks a little too good to be true.
When it comes to anything Apple--and especially anything Mac Netbook-related--you can blog virtually anything and get a huge response from readers.
Well, Monday's Apple Netbook entry comes to us from a Russian magazine that printed up what's almost assuredly fake concept art for a MacBook mini (it's not quite April Fool's Day, but we're close). What's amusing is that it all looks pretty real on the surface, with a price tag ($899), a release date (sometime this year), and detailed specs that have some folks drooling:
- 10.4-inch WXGA display
- 1280x768-pixel resolution with LED backlighting
- Nvidia MCP79 chipset
- Intel Atom Z740 1.83GHz CPU with 1MB L2 cache
- 2GB DDR3-800 memory
- Nvidia GeForce 9400M GPU
- 64GB solid-state drive
- Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR connectivity
- Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n connectivity
- 1 USB 2.0 socket
- 1 Mini Display Port
- Lithium ion 5100mA battery
Looks too good to be true. Or does it?
