O2 denies MacBook rumors

UK telecom company O2 has denied rumors of a special MacBook bundle, according to a new report. An industry magazine, Mobile, had suggested that the company wanted to exploit its partnership with Apple, which originated with the first-generation iPhone. O2 was allegedly in discussions to begin selling MacBooks bundled with some form of Internet access, whether fixed or cellular; the notebooks would be cheaper than Apple's own, but only because of subsidies on O2's part.

A spokeswoman for the latter company, however, has denied these claims, saying there are "no such plans to launch an Apple MacBook laptop offer," and that the report is in fact "untrue." O2 is one of many carriers selling a subsidized version of the iPhone 3G, but such discounts are rarely if ever associated with computers.
