It’s been 4 months since the arrival of the Apple iPad and by now we all know that it was no netbook killer.

Recently though, there have been rumors of an 11″ version of the Apple MacBook Air. The problem with the 13″ version is that while ultra light, ultra portable and ultra cool it is also ultra big and uber expensive at $1500.

It should be noted that the low-end Apple laptop is the MacBook which retails at $1000. So, I am willing to bet that that the mini MacBook Air retail from $800 just over the retail price of the most expensive iPad.

All these are nothing but rumors though. But if you’ve been following Apple news you’ll know that most rumors tend to materialize than not. So, watch out for a MacBook Air netbook although Apple will never brand their mini computer as netbook!

Any more news on this? I wonder if this will be announced next week at the Mac -centric event on Oct 20? I am anxious for one of these.
