“Apple is set to unveil a new ultraportable laptop [at Macworld Expo] on January 15, according to the army of online pundits dedicated to tracking the iPod maker’s every move,” Rhys Blakely reports for The Times.

“Suggestions that such a machine, said to be fitted with flash-based memory and an external disk drive, is imminent were stoked last month when digitimes.com, the industry site, revealed that Apple has secured a supply of 13.3-inch LED backlight units, used for ultraportable computer displays, from Taiwan,” Blakely reports.
