I think it would be cool if Apple released a new Mac mini, they need to have a really inexpensive, better performing machine for people who have all the peripherals. But in all honesty I'll believe it when I see it.
That being said... the gap between the mini and the G5 (Mac Pro)... is called an iMac. Where has everyone been the last few years? iMacs now days are amazing machines. There is no "gap"... there's just the iMac that fits nicely between the Mac Mini and the Mac Pro....
Anyway, I'm saying tablet IF there is a brick at all. Apple could take all of their "thinnovation" and new technology from the Macbook air, flip the screen around and have a completely new machine with very little work. Especially considering the time frame between Mac Air, iPhone 3g, Nanos/touches, and now "the Brick".
It's gotta be something pretty easy.

there is no brick. there will never be a brick. the brick is a figment of your imagination. you can't pass figments of imagination to other beings. if you could, you already would have passed your little figment to the almighty steve. but because you cannot, the imagination figment can not be passed through his brain; converting it into a working physical product.
... sorry about that

Hmm, I'm guessing "the brick" is an attachment for the Macbook Air. Think about it... somthing the size of a brick that has all the things that is needed that the Macbook Air doesnt have, DVDR, CDR, extra plug-ins, ect....

in the photo its oviously not a tablet mac but one of those sure would be popular, and with the availability of low power oled screens and vastly reduced and higher capacity memory, I'm sure the possibility isnt far away, lets see who gets one out first !!!!!Eric's iPhone 4 4.01 offically unlocked

I don't think it's a device at all. That doesn't make sense. A new computer wouldn't eat into MS's market share as Microsoft doesn't make hardware. New laptops would eat into Dell's and other manufacturers market share but it wouldn't even touch Microsoft. The only way to eat into Microsoft's' market share would be with software that rivals theirs... Maybe built in support for Microsoft applications without the need for VM? Or maybe an amazing new server architecture seeing as Microsoft's real market share stems from Enterprise usage.

If you watch the beginning of this video, he talks about a blank square. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdpRSj7tLiY&feature=related]YouTube - Macworld NY 1999-The First iBook Introduction[/ame]
Maybe 'brick' is a code name for the new 'blank square' for their product line. If this is true, then they are making something, and it could be a whole new product. Or it could be an update to an older one.
