Kate MacKenzie introduces the 2017 Mac Pad.
Think of a 12-inch Mac notebook with a removable, detachable screen that doubles as either, 1) an iPad Pro, or, 2) a Mac with a touch screen. To further differentiate the Mac Pad from other Macs, let it run with an Apple designed ARM CPU, say the A11 Fusion series, so it competes in horsepower with the MacBook, but it’s not Intel Inside so there’s no need or opportunity to run Windows 10 or Linux or any other perversion.
Naysayers say it would be too big, too heavy, to complicated, and too expensive. Yet, many Windows 10 tablet notebook hybrids are priced half that of a Mac. Chromebooks that run Android applications are even less expensive and both make up the only segment of the traditional PC industry that is growing.
