Does anyone know if going IPS also means the panel is 8-bit

as opposed to usual 6-bit displays in laptops?

While the patent mentions a few devices, the fact that they list the three levels of MacBooks extensively is clear like you said. So my vote is that Apple will bring touch to the Macbook but not necessarily this year. It could be 2 or 3 years down the road. Who's in any hurry here?

That's a tricky question. I think that the date is interesting, but I want a hybrid notebook/ipad to cut down on the clutter of devices. That combo would serve me better, but not so for others. But the MacBook Air is really devoid of purpose in the MacBook lineup any longer and so it's the perfect candidate.

They should create a detachable display so it could be used as an iPad too. To justify the cost, it would have to be a macbook air. Give me that and I'll lick it too!
