The MSI Wind becomes the Apple MacBook Nano

white.jpg

Spotted in the wilds of Flickr, this MacBook Nano: a modified MSI Wind with some slick Apple branding, a hacked install of OS X Leopard and a 320GB hard drive bump. There’s some typically Apple details you just can’t mod, of course: there’s simply no way Apple would release a netbook with a non-chiclet keyboard at this stage in the game, and that touchpad isn’t fooling anyone either. Still, this really is about halfway towards what I want in an Apple netbook, with the additional 50% being extraordinary battery life.

    Didn’t Steve Jobs say that the iPhone will be Apple’s netbook?
