Macworld Expo is only a bit more than month away, and we are expecting surprises. We heard that CNBC is reporting about Apple plans at Macworld to introduce a 12-inch Mac laptop with flash memory in place of a hard drive.

There are suggestions that the ultraportable Mac is 50 percent thinner and lighter than a current MacBook Pro, the largest notebook in Apple’s lineup. The pricing is expected to be at $1,500, the same price as the 13.3-inch black MacBook.

Also, we can expect 3G version of the iPhone. Let us wait a bit.
