Well we don't know that for sure yet! 😜😜😁 However A8 is likely only a year away (if Apple can keep up) so the potential is there for something sooner than expected. Frankly A7 looks like a perfectly suitable chip for a Mac like machine already. It would have to be a variant that supports the required desktop interfaces such as USB and TB but that really isn't a big deal, call it A7D for desktop/laptop. Up the clock rate a bit, say 1.8GHz, and you will have a fine...
See here is the problem, Intel can't afford huge cuts! The new process nodes are very expensive so the shrinkage in chip size doesn't save as much money in the past. Combined with lower sales this puts Intel in a tough position.Broadwell is supposedly 14 nm. As for Haswell it is possibly the worst drawn out product roll out that Intel has done in years. Somebody at Intel needs to pull a Steve jobs and trim down the product lineup to a rational size. Frankly I...
Let's look at this way, if the 5c was indeed a best seller then Apple really would have failed with the 5s launch. What Apple and frankly much of the industry wants is a very successful 5s launch to get the new technology on the market. Strong 5c sales might actually be seen as a negative in some corners, if it significantly impacts 5s sales. In the end I really think the obsession with 5c sales is more due to some people out there actively trying to find wrong with...
Apple has already public ally up guidance as they are required too. Really what more is needed here.A few in the investment community might fell as you describe above, but much of the noise you here about Apple and the 5c lately, is about stock manipulation which seems to have reached a all time high. Every real statistic we have seen so far indicates a very successful launch for Apple, so these attempts to color this success as a failure are at times rather humorous...
Because most hammers enjoy being licked by Millie.
The factor is screen size for the most part. That is like saying people buy the 13" MBP because it is cheaper and for no other reason. No rational person would expect that to be true in the case of a MBP and like wise in the case of the iPads.
The product differentiation comes from the size of the screen first and foremost. Second don't assume Apple would add Touch ID, a new camera or other new features with the 64 bit chip. The reasons to go 64 bit now are varied but are all of long term value to Apple.first is that differentiating a product via a 32/64 bit barrier is bad voodoo. For the same reason they moved Mac all to 64 bit as fast as possible they will do the same with the iPads.the performance per...
I suspect that is why people are objecting to your posts! 😜😜😜The Mini doesn't have to go up in price to get some of the flagship iPad features. For example any extra cost with respect to the 64 bit processor would likely be covered by lower prices on flash that would even include doubling RAM.There is little doubt that A7 costs more to produce, after all the dies size is larger than the old chips. But that doesn't imply an explosion in costs for the chip, a few dollars...
That is more of an issue of Apple ignoring legacy hardware. Touch has become the Mac Pro of the iOS world.
Most of this makes no sense at all.When Apple released the Mini do you not think that the pricing was forward looking due to knowing what was in development? The Mini was as much a proof of concept machine as the original iPad was. The follow on to the iPad was vastly improved over iPad one so to will be the new Mini.Maybe maybe not. Here is a cold hard fact, people can see the difference! It might not be the big deal some imagine but it does impact the...
