Rumor of the day: New slim MacBooks coming soon

Sleek aluminum design supposedly among the features.

9to5mac.com sees new slim laptops in Apple's future.

Since we can't seem to go more than 10 minutes without some kind of Apple news, it's not surprising that another round of Mac rumors are making their way across the Interwebs this morning.

According to the Web site 9to5mac.com, which correctly called the new iPod Nano design last month, Apple is planning a new line of super slim laptops, with a sleek aluminum design. They offer the following predictions:

  • Black aluminum and silver aluminum (like MacBook Pros)
  • Considerably slimmer than current MacBook and even the MacBook Pro
  • The screen reaches much closer to the edges than current MacBooks, but is the same size as current MacBooks--indicating a somewhat smaller footprint
  • The keyboards resemble Apple's new Bluetooth Keyboard
  • There is something strange about the touchpad (more on this to come)
  • They are set to be priced extremely aggressively
  • While they are dense, overall they are lighter than the current MacBooks


    We'll keep our ears to the ground for more rumors, and hopefully a few leaked spy shots, in the coming weeks.
