Default apple creating a portable gaming pc?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/infoworld/20...IQYH03Y.cxVrIF

A recent patent filing points to the idea that Apple may be building an ultra-mobile Macintosh.

The patent filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office defines "a docking area configured to receive a portable computer."

Hmmm.. interesting.

It also will enable the portable device to communicate with the docking station using Bluetooth and IEEE 80.2.11 wireless connections.

No matter what device Apple is patenting, i bet dudes with little black glasses and carefully mussed up hair will call it awesome.

Hmmmm, sounds interesting! I always thought Apple would create a killer console- but it's so hard to imagine that. They definitely could, though.

So? Apple came up with something that is small and can be used anywhere.

PC's are actually useful.
