[SHAMELESS PLUG: Technologizer will be liveblogging the Apple notebook event on 10/14/2008 @ 10am PT. Please join us.]
This we know for sure: Apple is having an event next Tuesday, and it will involve notebooks. Possibly sub-$800 notebooks and/or notebooks carved out of solid blocks of aluminum. But really, Apple being Apple, it could announce almost anything on Tuesday–multiple anythings, even.
So over on Twitter, I asked my pals to chime in with their what they were hoping for–and since it was Twitter, they had to do it in a maximum of forty characters.
Here’s what folks told me:
wardomatic: Affordable (yet fast) Macbooks, please.
amarvin: i hope apple announces a 13-inch aluminum macbook but keeps the current macbooks as entry-level (cheaper) models.
kellieparker: free laptops for everyone! But seriously, I think it’s a MacBook & MBP refresh
dtnick: A MacBook that doesn’t crack. Is that too much to ask from them?
randypeterman: I would like Apple to announce a Mac Basic [$799], a Mac Book+ [$1199] & a MBP Upgrade for $1799.
james_atomic: MacBook pro air?
strixus: not a laptop. New Mini.
ugadawg94: I want a 15 inch MacBook.
CallanH: I hope the $800 laptop rumors are true. I know many people who would be into that.
mikebarton: Re: Apple, I think it’s got to be sub-$800 or go home in this economy. Here come the netbooks…http://ping.fm/SUO0F
PatrickMoorhead: Would like to see APL announce laptops with integrated graphics that can actually do something more useful than web surfing. [NOTE: Patrick works at AMD.]
pcubed: really hope for a high-end netbook, like an Air for the rest of us. Somewhere in the $650 range would be optimal.
willswideweb: Nothing. I can’t afford another laptop at the moment…
Now that you’ve read this wish list for Tuesday, why not add to it with a comment? Feel free to use way more than 140 characters if you need ’em…
And hey, if you want to follow me on Twitter, please do! I go by the cryptic handle of harrymccracken there.
