Apple to launch Mac 'netbook' next week?

Mac maker confirms Oct. 14 laptop launch

Apple is expected to introduce new Mac laptops at a US launch event that's just been confirmed for 14 October.

The media invitations read "The spotlight turns to notebooks," featuring a partially obscured laptop coming out of the shadows with a light upon the Apple logo.

Bloggers and others have been talking up an October 14 event for weeks, while analysts have been expecting Apple to refresh its laptop line for much longer.

In particular, the company is said to be planning a lower-priced laptop, and potentially Apple's first foray into the netbook market.
