The tech world is buzzing over Apple's latest must-have gadget1, the MacBook Wheel, a revolutionary new laptop that does away with the keyboard. Tech Trends reporter, Jeff Tate has more.

Thanks, Andrea. Say goodbye to the keyboard and hello to the future of laptop computers. With the MacBook Wheel, Apple has replaced the traditional keyboard with a sleek2, touch sensitive click wheel. Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the product yesterday at the annual Mac Expo.

Senior product innovator3, Brian Gilman, says the MacBook Wheel will make typing a thing of the past. At Apple, our philosophy is create products that are simple to use. And nothing's more simple than a single giant button.

Gilman showed me how the revolutionary new computer works.

“Just open the IntuiType Alphabet menu here. Scroll4 to the letter you need, see? And center click to select it. Then click again to capitalize and repeat this process for each new letter. It couldn't be simpler. (Hum.) You can also let the predictive sentence technology complete the sentence for you. ”

Gilman says the MacBook Wheel has also simplified the organization of files, so searching your hard drive will be a snap. Just press both sides of the wheel concurrently5, and center click, and there, you have an alphabetical6 listing of every file on your hard drive.

“Everything is just a few hundred clicks away. Apple is calling the MacBook Wheel the most intuitive product ever designed. Here at Apple, we like to think that we're giving customers features they don't even realize they want yet. ”

While the MacBook Wheel won't hit the shelves for another 3 to 15 months, many Apple users already have it on their wish list.

“I'll buy almost anything if it's shiny and made by Apple.”

Alex Zalban was one of the lucky few to get to try out a MacWheel and spent 45 minutes typing an email to his friend.

“I never really realized how much I hated keyboards until I saw this thing. I like how the Email automatically says, sent from a MacBook Wheel--that way people know you have one.”

With a price tag of just under $2,600 for the lowest-end MacBook Wheel, it is an investment. But, the super thin laptop features numerous innovations like the new ultra-thin Hummingbird7 Battery, which can power the MacBook Wheel for a full 19 minutes, before needing to be recharged. And the computer is virtually unbreakable unless dropped or hit. But Apple isn't resting on its laurels8. Brian Gilman said they are already hard at work on the next generation of the MacBook Wheel, which will be 4 ounces lighter9, due to its lack of screen hard driver wheel.

For the Onion News Network, I'm Jeff Tate.

Thank you for that, Jeff. It remains10 to be seen if the wheel will catch on in the business world, where people use computers for actual work, and not just sticking around.

Moving on, police warn that the Sudoku killer11 will kill either 1,4 or 9 victims next.
