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.

CNN (CNET) - Apple Tablet

How could this not be cool?

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
