BIG IN 2008 – MacBook Nano

Despite the crashing flop that was the Apple Newton, a Mac version of the UMPC concept seems to us like a certainty. After all, Apple is streets ahead

Despite the crashing flop that was the Apple Newton, a Mac version of the UMPC concept seems to us like a certainty. After all, Apple is streets ahead when it comes to touch sensitivity and already has compact devices that run a cut-down Mac OS X. None, though, that are quite as desirable as the MacBook Nano.

Stuff has pooled all of its Mac expertise to work out what the teensy new Mac will look like and this is the result. Isn’t it lovely? It ploughs the same furrow as all of Apple’s recent output, resplendent in aluminium and glass.

The new MacBook won’t be lacking power either – expect Intel processors running a full version of Mac OS X Leopard, and hopefully 32GB or 64GB of flash memory for rugged storage.

Who is a device like this for? Basically, anyone who likes cool stuff… and if it gets made, you can count us in...
