Apple unveils MacBook Wheel at Macworld

January 6th, 2009 14 Comments By Paul Smith

While the official announcement isn’t expected until later this afternoon’s keynote speech at Macworld, details of the newest Apple product have already leaked out. The MacBook Wheel is expected to become available to buy within three to 15 months, and while the $2,600 price tag might be considered steep by some, the revolutionary new Hummingbird battery assembly should see it find favour with a new generation of Apple customers:

    The production values of these Onion gags are astounding. Just that clip must have cost as much to shoot as an entire BBC 30′ sitcom. And it moves so fast that you miss half the gags the first time round. Brilliant.

    I always felt that something was missing in my life, My IPod Nano, video, touch, I phone, Mac book, Griffin I dock, In car docking station, Apple TV, Bose portable speaker system, Belkin IPod case, and 4 accounts to ITunes just left me with a slightly empty feeling. This could plug the gap…do you think there will be a range of colours and matching furniture. If they could put Mac Wheel docking stations in McDonalds and bring out a range of crystal cases my life is surely complete.

    “everything is just a few hundred clicks away” – Oh great only a few hundred, let me set aside a week to find a word document :s

    that looks like an absolute chore just to type a sentence! Is this a joke!?
    looks like something developed for kids with special needs(no disrespect to them).
    Look how confused that woman looks while using it, can’t be that intuitive.

    i think that guy summed up all apple sheep.. i mean customers;

    “I’ll buy almost anything if its shiny and made by apple”

    “Nice idea, be rubbish in practice”, “Is this a joke!?”
