Will we get an ARM Mac? Probably, maybe? Who knows? /shrug
I’m pretty certain I’ve opined about this before, but my weblog is a mess at the moment and I can’t find the reference to it.
What if the ARM Mac is really an iOS based laptop? Seriously.
Think of the 12in MacBook. Some folks really loved the thing. It was teeny tiny. Just imagine the 12.9in or 11in iPad as a laptop. The darned thing could be super thin and light. It could even have the same square design or Apple could adopt the curved edges of the current MacPro lineup. It doesn’t really matter.
Think about this. It could be slightly heavier than an iPad Pro but lighter than a MacBook Air. That is a class of computer I think a lot of folks would really love.
What if it had a crazy long battery life because they could pour battery into the top and bottom cases? To that end they could move around where everything lives in the computer. They’d have all kinds of space. Full keyboard, full mouse, beautiful display, full touch, and pencil support. Add to that four USB-C ports and you have a potential winner on your hands.
And for the cherry on top I can see Tim Apple stepping out on stage proclaiming “And we call it, iBook.”
The virtual crowd goes crazy.
