MacBook Touch: Concept Video Shows What Touchscreen Apple Laptop Might Look Like

Macbook Touch

After Apple introduced the iPhone’s touchscreen technology in 2007, it was only natural that fans would start speculating as to whether it would ever be incorporated into the company’s massively popular MacBooks. But with characteristic conviction, Steve Jobs’ put at end to those rumors in 2010 when, at an unveiling for the OS X Lion, he declared that “Touch surfaces don’t want to be vertical.”

For the Lenovo Yoga’s sake, let’s hope Jobs was wrong about that. And also because a new concept video, posted on YouTube earlier this week by French architect Olivier Terrisse, shows how awesome a ‘MacBook Touch’ could be, combining the MacBook’s sharp display with a flip-and-fold design.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look we can be looking forward to a MacBook Touch anytime soon. But if the latest rumors are true, Apple fans should have enough to get excited about over the next year: In addition to the 4G iPhone 5, which a number of sources have said will be released in October 2012, the company is also rumored to be developing a mini 7.5-inch version of the iPad as well as an Apple TV, which could be here in time for the holidays.
