Apple CEO rejects notion of iOS-powered laptops

Gregg Keizer | Nov. 17, 2015
Tim Cook dismisses idea of imitating Microsoft's Surface Book with a laptop that runs Apple's mobile OS.

Cook also used his time with The Irish Independent to walk back comments he made last week disparaging PCs. ""I think if you're looking at a PC, why would you buy a PC anymore? No really, why would you buy one?", Cook asked in an interview with the U.K. newspaper The Daily Telegraph a week ago as he pitched the iPad Pro.

Many, including Computerworld, wondered what prompted Cook's question since Apple certainly sells personal computers under its Mac brand.

Although he didn't retract the question Sunday, Cook tried to clarify it. "We don't regard Macs and PCs to be the same,' he told the Irish daily, apparently separating Windows machines and those that run OS X into two species.
