Flash Apple Ultraportable Flash MacBook end of the PC?
According to rumor, Apple will release a flash memory 12 inch screen sub notebook MacBook next month. The reports have emphasized the slimness of the unit. But what might be more significant is that this could make small notebooks with flash memory, and even flash desktops, from other makers more acceptable. Other makers could respond quickly by replacing the hard disk in their sub notebooks with flash and leaving out the DVD/CD drive. The Apple unit is the size I suggested for thin client Linux sub notebooks. However, the Apple is likely to be about four times the $500 price I would see the low end units selling for.
