Apple’s next line of MacBooks, which we’re expecting to launch very soon, could use Liquidmetal technology in its casing.┬áThat rumour comes from an anonymous tip on SlashGear.

Liquidmetal is an extremely durable, yet smooth alloy that Apple got the rights to use in 2010. It hasn’t released a product using the material yet.

This latest rumour means we could finally see a new line of super strong MacBooks very soon. There’s also a rumour that Apple could use Liquidmetal in the next iPhone.
