Did I hear that desktop Mac sales were up but portable were down? That's a reversal of a long term trend!
That's not surprising either. Most people don't really need a portable Mac, they need an iPad or an iPhone. For their Mac, since they don't need a portable, they might as well get something with more screen real estate.
I would hardly call this "tipping his hand". It would be far more surprising if they didn't "have a lot more surprises in the works."

HP and Dell are doing bad for handful of reasons.
Selling PCs with same Windows 8, Lenovo achieved increase of 34 percent in earnings over the same period last year. Their shipment grew 7.9%, opposite to 7.8% decline in PC market.
well if the build quality of the Lenovos in my store are any indication, it's because they've completely abandoned the wonderful thinkpad-style devices in favor of their own lack-luster designs.
