There's something in the air...the blogosphere is abuzz with Apple rumors. The rumor buzz is usual a few weeks before the MacWorld Conference & Expo (January 14-18, 2008) in San Francisco, and this year the rumor-mongers expect that Steve Jobs will announce a new $1500 sub-notebook MacBook Pro, which will be 50% thinner than the present laptops, and will employ flash memory instead of a hard drive, but no optical drive (which will be separate).
Depending on its configuration, this new sub notebook (if it indeed materializes) may well be ideal for traveling photographers. Light, small and providing all the necessary software would be the answer to many problems now facing us. I'm holding my breath on that one.
