Mac Notebook Concert Rumor

Apple may have tipped off its plans to introduce a notebook at Macworld through its staff holiday celebrations, claims a rumor from BGR. The news cites rap artist and website ally Just Blaze as having received word of a company-sponsored music event for Apple's employees which had several major artists perform without their usual compensation; instead, each individual in a group was promised a free notebook to be announced at the Macworld San Francisco expo, according to the claim. Details of the systems themselves are unknown, though they will reportedly go on sale just a week after the expo opens.

The story has yet to be corroborated by secondary sources but ties into reports from CNBC and analysts that Apple is likely to unveil a Mac subnotebook at the event that will be both thinner than traditional designs and also use at least some flash storage in place of a rotating hard disk. Apple is also known to regularly request major artists for performances and has often included short concerts at the end of its press events, such as previous performances by Wynton Marsalis or KT Tunstall.

    right....

    the only thing you need to attract big name talent is the promise of some thousand dollar notebook? Right.... I would think someone would want the cash.

    re: right....

    I am sure this would not be the only compensation, but yeah, HIGHLY unlikely.

    Re: if it's 2.99

    In Canada, movie rentals are $5 or $6 - $2.99 is a great price, especially considering, I don't need to mail anything back or wait for it to come in the mail.
