PostSubject: Rumored ‘MacBook touch’ could be Apple’s ‘killer app for higher education’   Mon Jul 28, 2008 10:29 am

Apple's rumored "MacBook touch" could be "Apple’s Killer App for Higher Ed" writes John Paczkowski for AllThingsD's Digital Daily.

Consider this rumor posted to MacDailyNews:

Think MacBook screen, possibly a bit smaller, in glass with iPhone-like, but fuller-featured Multi-Touch. Gesture library. Full Mac OS X. This is why they bought P.A. Semi. Possibly with Immersion’s haptic tech. Slot-loading SuperDrive. Accelerometer. GPS. Pretty expensive to produce initially, but sold at "low" price that will reduce margins. Apple wants to move these babies. And move they will. This is some sick @#@t. App Store-compatible, able to run Mac apps, too. By October at the latest.

Paczkowski writes, "Sounds plausible, doesn’t it? Certainly, given the success of the iPhone’s multi-touch platform and its speedy extension to the iPod Touch, it doesn’t take take a leap of imagination to see multi-touch making its way into a Mac tablet."

"Running with this a bit further, a finger-as-stylus touchscreen Mac tablet would make a hell of a nice counterpart to Apple’s new MobileMe service, wouldn’t it? It would make a great e-book reader too–if Apple ever gets around to adding a bookstore to iTunes. And if Apple were to link it up to iTunes U, as it undoubtedly would, the Mac tablet might even become higher education’s killer app. Especially if it arrives at market right before school starts, as it seems scheduled to do. A notebook, a textbook AND a MacBook–all in one," Paczkowski writes.

Paczkowski writes, "Sound like “a state-of-the-art new product that our competitors just aren’t going to be able to match” to you? Does to me."
