Apple Throws Secret Lombard/PowerBook Party At NAB
[Editor's Note: Observer Steve Hart reminded us that this report is actually an InfoWorld report that CNN is posting. Thanks Mr.Hart!]

An InfoWorld article posted at CNN is reporting that Apple showed off the next generation PowerBook at a secret meeting at NAB. As Mac news and rumor sites have been reporting for months, the notebook is going to be super slim. According to CNN:

Apple Computer showed dealers its next-generation PowerBook computer line behind closed doors at the National Association of Broadcasters Conference in Las Vegas last week, according to sources close to the company.

The forthcoming unit, code-named Lombard, is reportedly at least as thin as Sony's 0.9-inch Vaio portable, and will feature processor speeds starting at 400 MHz with the next-generation PowerPC G4 processor.

The three-and-one-half pound portable system also features a detachable LCD that can be replaced with goggles for so-called heads-up display.

No launch date was given for the Lombard family, although this unit is in Apple's professional line, not the forthcoming consumer portable, code-named P1.

Apple officials declined to comment on unannounced products.

The Mac Observer Spin: Sure is fun to see CNN pay Apple so much attention. Funny how success can do that for a company. :-)

It will also be pretty amazing if the detachable screen/goggles aspect of this report ends up being true. Very cool one way or another.
