Rumor Mill: New Macbook Touch Coming Soon?

From the tipsters that brought you the wireless iTunes store before it debuted, this new rumor might just rock your socks. Apparently, Apple's making huge plans to take over that little tablet PC niche by storm with a brand new line of Macbooks with a full touchscreen covered in that lovable scratch resistant iPhone glass. If they do this right, I might just have to grab one for my kitchen to look up recipes...

"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 shit. App Store-compatible, able to run Mac apps, too. By October at the latest."
