Heise Online reports on a press release from Freescale detailing a new ARM processor which includes an interesting depiction of an Apple netbook/tablet:

A picture included in their press release hints that the Freescale SoC may appear in a future Apple netbook. The vendor also envisages budget notebooks with Ubuntu Linux and i.MX51 under people's Christmas trees in 2009.

The image appears similar to the many mockups seen floating around the internet. The actual press release is not provided, but it appears this could just be a concept shot.

Update: The image has been revealed to be a concept mockup created by Edwin Tofslie.
