As a new HDTV owner, i'm following this very closely. I would LOVE a Mac Mini or AppleTV with BluRay to hook up to my 46" LCD...

I tried to collect the most common ideas for the poll... feel free to list your own ideas too.

Besides being some people I know, my guess is the Brick refers to a new multi-touch device, possibly a tablet.

I'm really hoping for a tablet. I know that some people say we already have it; it's the iPhone, and sure, it's great for gaming and such, but I want a bigger touch device that runs the full version of OS X.

By "expanded" I mean "something people might actually buy"

Oh a Blu Ray player would be pretty sweet. I picked up Iron Man on Blu Ray last night. Amazing.

I always thought the Brick was a reference to that large, brick-shaped old school cellular phone.

it's Apple's code name... Not a marketing slogan.

I should have realized this the other day. Here's a link to MacRumors talking about what the "brick" is. It refers t the new manufacturing process used to make the new MacBook lineup. Carved from a large, brick or aluminum.
