A mobile device with the power of a computer? You don’t have it. Have you ever asked yourself why iPad sales continuously decline? For normal people a big-sized smartphone does it all. There’s no need for a tablet which runs the same OS like the smartphone does.
Decades ago – and supported by lots of scientists of different academic disciplines today – Alan Kay already told us that people should learn the basics of programming. But with an iPad
Pro you can’t do it.
The MacBook isn’t that mobile as Apple wants us to see it. And the iPad still lacks some essential features a computer is capable of, e.g. programming.
So the next step (since years) should be a real hybrid like Microsoft created it already in 2002 with the Tablet PC.
I was a proud owner of a Siemens T4010 Convertible running Windows Tablet PC Edition. And I tell you, it was a great experience at that time and it’s a great experience with my Surface Pro 4 today.
what’s your answer to the Surface Pro, making use of a fanless architecture, with a powerful Intel Corei5, running a full version of Windows 10, ready to install millions of powerful applications?
Just create a mPad running macOS with the option to also run iOS apps and Windows 10 via Bootcamp.
Forget your Macbooks and give us an ocean-boiling new Mac Pro instead.
It’s just my very personal opinion. Apple is the most successful company in the world led by excellent staff so they’ll have their good reasons not to do so. Sadly.
Thanks for 💦ing by.
