Apple netbooks manufactured by Foxconn rumored

The Inquirer

Digitimes and a plethora of Russian hardware sites are quoting Chinese-language site Commercial Times, which in turn is quoting sources from the component supply chain. These are whispering that Cupertino has sealed the deal with contract electronics manufacturer Hon Hai Precision Industry - or Foxconn - to bang out Apple netbooks.

Commercial Times says Apple may also be contracting other manufacturers in Asia, but Foxconn seems to be the main firm in the running.

I spent about 4 hours converting a Lenovo S10e to a Hackintosh 10.5.6 and it is sweet. If Apple made a 'real' NetBook, I'd snap one up in an instant.
