...according to this week's Time magazine article on new sub-sub-notebooks.

The article mentions Apple's, as yet unannounced, sub-notebook several times.

Hmmm... I'm not an avid follower of Mac rumors, but this one seems to be firming up. I think it's going to happen.

My understanding is that it's a laptop designed to be used underwater, although Wikipedia offers a somewhat less inspired definition...
Subnotebooks are generally smaller than a laptop computer, but larger than handheld computers and ultraportables. They often have screens that are 10.4" (diagonal) or less, and weigh less than 1 kg; as opposed to full-size laptops with 12" or 15" screens and weighing 2 kg or more. The savings in size and weight are usually achieved partly by omitting ports and/or have removable media/optical drives; subnotebooks are often paired with docking stations to compensate.

Either way, it should be cool.
