Apple The usually already overactive Apple rumour mill has been spinning like crazy the past few days due to rumours about apple possibly entering the netbook market. The rumours are vague and not exactly definitive, but that doesn't mean mulling a possible apple netbook isn't interesting. If the Cupertino company built a netbook, what would it look like?

The iPhone and iPod Touch are netbooks, and they completely demolish anything in the market right now. A bigger iPod Touch is simply going to be awesome, especially with some sort of Simple Finder/At Ease feature from good ol' classic Mac OS. An application switcher that allows for basic multitasking.

Of course, I was also intrigued by some of the ARM-based prototypes too, so that might be nice. I just think Apple will probably try to steer clear from a cramped keyboard, since that is the weirdest and lamest feature of netbooks right now.

Uh huh, just keep telling yourself that. The iPhone and iPod Touch are very capable devices, but they're not netbooks by any stretch, no matter what Jobs has said.
