Windows 8 gear assault, or simply a screen for a new touch-enabled MacBook Air.Of course, being in the testing batch at Foxconn, as the sources claim for the 12.9-incher, might mean one of many things - the panel could be one of many sizes Apple is toying with that will never see the light of day, or destined for some kind of convertible to respond to the
The larger tablet is expected to be announced by Apple in the spring, which, if it pans out together with the 5" iPhone 6 rumor and the iTV, would mark 2014 year as the year Apple went big.

I'm rather curious about how much will it cost, start with USD 599 or more?

iPredict the future of pads is the Mini and the Maxi, the Air will be pushed out... it's kinda too big to be portable and too small to be useful. The Mini and Maxi are the right sizes imo. Mini pad on the road, Maxi pad on the end table at home. I personally am waiting for a sweet hybrid convertable ultrabook that has windows and android with a decent price. Ya, I'm looking at you ATIVQ but not at those prices

I wouldn't be surprised it the device was aimed at business / power users. This device is clearly meant to replace a laptop. Apple came out with a 64-bit processor, it now has the internal space to pack some aggressive hardware. The bigger size helps with the device getting hot due to more surface area. I would guesstimate the device with start with 64 GB of storage at a price of $799.

I could see this working if they sell it Transformer-style with a keyboard dock. There's been speculation elsewhere that by taking the Air name, iPad ought to push into laptop territory.

I think you're on to something. I believe this is why Apple went with 64 bit chips in the iPhone and ipad. They are preparing to come out with a tablet that can convert to a full blown computer. Will it replace the MacBook Air is the question.
