Photo of Apple’s rumored subnotebook Mac?

An image was recently posted to MacRumors’ forums by a “macrumors newbie” named “greenrabbit.”

Is this the first pre-Macworld Expo leaked image of Apple’s rumored ultra-thin subportable, complete with a nice wide trackpad loaded with multi-touch goodness? For some, that giant wide single button might raise the red flag of fake; it just doesn’t seem to make Apple-sense design-wise to us. It’s “non-Ivesian,” if you will — unless it has new uses previously unseen (for example, perhaps the left and right sides rock on a central pivot, so the button can have multiple uses. We call dibs on that idea, Apple, but it’s available for purchase). All that naysaying said, now watch them release it just like that on the 15th.

It’s that time of the year. So, real or fake, what do you think?

MacDailyNews Take: Perhaps “greenrabbit” should have named him or herself “whiterabbit,” instead.


  1. I don’t buy it, simply because there’s nothing in the new model that couldn’t be taken from an existing model and used in photoshop to create this fake photo.

    It’s just hard for me to believe that Apple would have been working for so long on something that so closely resembles old products that have been around for years now.

    A wider trackpad is hardly a revolutionary feature…

  2. If this is real, wouldn’t this have to be sitting on someone’s desk at Apple? It would be pretty easy to track down the culprit I would think. I doubt there are very many floating around and they’re going to be keeping a really close watch on those that are.
