MacBook, super-light portable, and iPhone/iPod

Apple has just speedbumped the MacBook. Does this mean we will not get a two-pound Apple portable this year?
On the other hand, I don't think such a creature would replace the MacBook, seeing as it would surely be a lot more expensive. At least twice the price I'm sure.

By the way, interestingly the iPhone will have much higher battery life than projected. And the surface will be optical glass instead of plastic. This is excellent news. The first black iPods were extremely prone to getting scratched, even if you were very careful about it. That's really below par and marred such a wonderful design.
Oh, one more note about the iPod design: I wish the buttons and scroll wheel were not flush with the surface, it makes it hard to operate without looking at it.
