Rumor going round the net states that Apple’s new tablet (MacBook Touch) is an actual gaming system.

The netbook, according to an analyst who claims to have seen it, is a 10-incher that will sync, Wi-Fi stream from home devices, has a touch screen, and was designed for gaming.

Currently awaiting the “go head” from Steve Jobs, the device will run somewhere in the $699-$799 range. Supposedly it is on for a September reveal and could start hitting stores as early as November.

According to the Telegraph, computer manufacturers have slowed production on tablet gizmos to wait and see what Apple is bringing to the fold.
