As all real Sneakhypers know, the word “Sneakhype” is used not only as a noun, but also as an adjective. (e.g. dem new Jordan fours are definitely Sneakhype). Well this custom Stealth MacBook Pro is so so… so Sneakhype. Blacked out matte finish all over… but the best part: the backlit keyboard — a soft blue glow. Check it out:

Rumors continue to circle that Apple will be releasing a Touchscreen notebook dubbed the “Netbook”, with a report from the Commercial Times. They say you can expect the Netbook in Quarter 3 of this year. Dope. Apple rumors happen all the time, so what makes this any different from the others? The information comes from Wintek, the company slated to provide the touch panels for the device, the netbook itself will be made by Quanta Computer. These are the same people who broke the news on the iPhone, so don’t be suprised if it comes true. Is this the design for the netbook? No, but it will be dope if it’s anything like this. More news in the near future. [gizmodo]

Macworld 09 is hurr and Apple has pushed the Pro’s screen to 17 inches, its price to $2799, and thrown in a high-capacity battery and it looks amazing. Available late this month, it’s just under an inch thick, weighs in at 6.6 pounds, and is claimed to be the “thinnest and lightest” 17″ notebook on the market. Apple says it’s the longest lasting MacBook battery ever—it’s a non-removable lithium polymer battery with “three times” the industry standard lifecycle, courtesy of “adaptive charging.” How long does it last? 7 hours with discrete graphics, 8 hours with integrated graphics. That’s 3 more hours than the previous-gen 17″ MBP. And it’ll cycle through that at least 1000 times with minimal wear. In less technical terms Its da shizzit.[via gizmodo]
