Will Apple launch a Mac iPad hybrid?
Finally there have been reports of a 12in iPad/laptop hybrid being tested by Apple, with some saying it's a larger iPad aimed at the professional market. Ming-Chi Kuo has commented on this, saying that Apple will introduce a new design of Retina laptop which will be lighter and thinner than the MacBook Air, but as powerful as a Pro. He also expects it to be cheaper than the current range. How Apple could achieve this still remains to be seen, and we would be very surprised indeed if such a product was announced. Could it be that this is not quite a Pro level device, but instead the first sighting of an experimental ARM-based MacBook? Whatever it is, we certainly think it could be very exciting.
