    Yes, this is just a rumor, but it comes from the same analyst group that guessed that Apple was making a cell phone. According to the analyst Shaw Wu, Apple is definitely interested in putting flash-based hard drives in their notebooks. This would save power, increase speed, and be much quieter. If Apple really is making these flash-based notebooks, we will start hearing about them/seeing them in Q2 2007.

    Would be good if they make them with 60 to 120 GB models. I think Apple Books are sexy and powerful, but battery hungry. Still hard working on one without an XP or Start button.
