Do you realize how many patents Apple files for things that never turn into products? It's a LOT. Filing for a patent requires the little drawings (if it's applicable) to basically describe something visually. Many times they just toss a basic idea up there, but it's not exactly how it will work.<br><br>That being said, this wouldn't be abnormal for Apple. They had the Duo Dock for an old PowerBook Duo years ago. This would be absolutely pointless for current MBs and MBPs, but if the rumor of the "sub-notebook" MB with just Flash RAM and no CD/DVD drive comes to be true, I could totally see this product being a value. It could also be a great network computer if the "base" doesn't have a hard drive.<br><br>The Graphic Mac for your Mac and graphics news, tips and more.

I wouldn't buy it.<br><br>What I really want in an ultra portable is battery power. In reality, the only way to do this is to under power the machine so it uses less energy.<br><br>last thing I want is to plug in my under powered but really good at battery life laptop into a desktop and then complain about lack of computing power.<br><br><br><br>I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.
