This is the next step of the post-PC era.
While other tablet makers though the tablet has plateaued as simply a consumer product, Apple knew.
That's why they pushed for the 64 bit A7. When the rest of the world though 64 bit was a gimmick.
The two barriers that tablets have to replace laptops/desktops is computing power and enterprise software integration. With the A7 Apple has broke through the computing power barrier. A quad core A8 could replace 90% of the laptops/desktops in the workforce right now. With this IBM collaboration they have address the enterprise software integration issue.
Last year the laptop/PC market had an estimated $300B in revenue. I'm predicting in the next 5 years Apple will break off a huge chunk of that revenue to iOS devices in enterprise. I can easily see Apple growing revenue 100% in the next 5 years with this enterprise deal, gaming, home automation, health, and wearables.
My sell target for my 1200 shares of Apple was $105-$110 before this news. Now I need to run my numbers again. My preliminary numbers say we see $200 in 5 years.
