Crazy Apple rumor of the day: New MacBooks already shipping
Citigroup's Richard Gardner asserted in a research note this morning that shipments of new MacBooks have begun.
We usually hate acting as an echo chamber for the viciously self-inflating Internet rumor mill, but this one is so gloriously out there that we can't help but weigh in.
Usually respectable financial outlet Barron's (owned by Dow Jones & Company, after all), caught our eye with the following report:
Citigroup's Richard Gardner asserted in a research note this morning that..."field checks" have confirmed that shipments of new MacBooks have begun; he says the most distinctive features of the new MacBooks are "very thin aluminum casing, an LED-backlit display and an aggressive entry-level price point."
It all seems improbable, but then again, in the unlikely case that new MacBooks start turning up next week, at least we've been warned.
