    think different.

    The integration of launchpad and other obvious methodologies in osx functionality are pointing to this evolution – so a surprise could be seen very soon.

    Looking at sales and the markets position for MBair or Laptops in general… iPads do what 90% of users need. Browse, email, text, research, and simple files creation. This places Apples own line of laptops in a questionable light for the company to also reconsider what to do.

    The iPad announcement will be mid-March. iPad 2 stays, new price $399 (for all the back-to-school textbook replacers). iPad 3 wifi ships in late March. iPad 3 4G LTE ships late April.
