Apple could very well be working on that “ultra-portable” Macbook that everyone keeps blabbing about. Well thanks to a lovely patent drawing, Jobs & Co. seem to want to throw the optical drive on the bottom to decrease the amount of space used in the design of the laptop.
A pain in the butt? You betcha. Though Unwired View counters that we don’t really use our optical drives that much, CrunchGear says that having to turn your laptop over every time you need to switch discs is a burden for everyone. Maybe at the WWDC this summer we’ll find out more about this move Apple might make.
