Decent perspective by Wil Gomez writing in Mac360 about Intel Inside vs. ARM inside on future Mac notebooks.
All Apple needs to do is make a Mac Pad; a notebook which runs macOS Half Moon Bay or whatever is next, and have it run an Apple-designed, ARM-based CPU; something along A12 Gemini would seem appropriate, but only as an entry-level Mac notebook with a touchscreen– a Mac that would not run Windows inside but would run iOS apps inside.
It could happen. It should happen.
Apple just needs to get over its bias for Intel Inside and touchscreen PCs. Those are the only ones selling in increasing numbers these days.
I would buy one.
