This looks like something Bert might be interested in: Apple Insider - Economy, opportunity seen leading to $599 Apple netbook.

Exactly.

I was disappointed by how wrong "analyst" predictions were regarding Apple's black Friday discounts. It ended up okay, because I found a good deal online. But rumors are often just rumors.

Another "update."

Dow Jones claims confirmation of Apple netbook.

I think some version of this is coming, but who knows when.

The "rumor" seems pretty solid now. It's just a question of the details -- features and release date.

How could this not be cool?

rumors! Mr Jobs can't keep his Apple tax on those netbooks, so it won't happen

Says who? That is absolutely ridiculous. And seems a little opinionated and biased statement. ;)

Whenever Apple and Macs are discussed, the trolls appear to come out of the woodwork.

...which are filtering in now:

"...the device will debut in February 2010 with a price between $799 and $999. The rumored device is alleged to have a 9.6-inch touchscreen, a chip from Apple-owned P.A. Semi, built-in 3G HSDPA, and a 'long lasting battery pack.'"

Ref: AppleInsider - Feb. 2010 launch for $800-$1,000
