  • Early benchmarks prove M1 iPad Pros are 50% faster than previous generation

    Imagine an iPad able to run, at the whim of the user based on his needs: 
    -- iPad OS
    -- MacOS
    -- An fully functional ARM based Windows
     
    It would be the most awesome machine on the planet.


    And even if Apple did design a future iPad to do all that, you’d still come here to these forums and complain about how hobbled it is because RAM is soldered onto the logic board, how you cannot change the SSD yourself, etc. etc. 

    Actually, they already did.   Try to keep up.

    And nobody has ever suggested removable RAM and SSDs in an iPad.   Try to stop making stuff up.
    So why would anyone contest Apple doing the same for the Mac Book Air, Mac Book Pro, or even iMac 24 inch? The form factors are all based on the same thin build, and minimal ports, which is anathema to user upgrades. 

    I can see an argument for the iMac Pro, or Mac Pro, but even the upcoming iMac 27 inch / 32 inch version might not be user upgradeable, given the fact that few users ever avail themselves of upgrades. 

    Buy what you need up front, and consider Apple financing if you can't meet the initial outlay, then sell when it stops meeting your needs, and buy a newer model.


    You seem to be conflating upgradeability with OS.   They are different issues.

    But, you suggest you buy a tablet when your needs call for a tablet then sell it and buy a Mac when your needs call for a Mac?
    Because those needs are increasingly not separate.
    I was helping my grandson with his homework last night and his assignments regularly switch back and forth between needing a tablet and needing a laptop.   Buying and lugging 2 devices around for one job just isn't reasonable now that technology has made one device for both tasks very possible.
    No, I'm responding to your previous comments about upgradability. 

    As for your son and his homework;

    Buy your grandson a Surface, because there isn't a future for what you want from Apple.

    Problem solved.

    See how that works?

    His school already did that because they weren't stupid enough to buy two separate devices when one would do.   It works well --  Except it's a crappy Dell running a Celeron processor.

    I'm just waiting for Apple to catch up and hoping they don't fall too far behind.  They have a lot to offer the world once they drop their purity tests.

    Nice little strawman world you've built there for yourself. 
    I honestly don't see the point of you hanging out in these forums constantly moaning and groaning why Apple isn't giving you MacOS on an iPad or touch screen on a Mac. You're not even their target clientele, since you've so often told us of lack of upgradeability and how your 10 year old Lenovo on Windows 10 is running perfectly with all your legacy 32 bit apps. 
    LOL....  How is reality a strawman?    I guess it is to somebody without an argument.

    And, why are you attacking posters on ai?
    Who made you the forum police?

    Oh! I get it!   You don't agree with the post.   And you don't have an argument against it.  So you just want it to all just go away.
    Go play with your dolls little girl.

    Hey George, the 1970’s called and they want their expressions back.
    Who talks like that?

    I talk like that to people who sound like grade school children trying to pick a fight on the playground.

    So, hobbled by iPadOS, where is the M1 iPad going to go?

    I don't know.  But I see Macs integrating more into the tablet world while iPads integrate more into the Mac world.
    ....  Only Apple knows how and when it will take place.   They have a lot of options -- except for one:  the status quo -- which is not viable over the long haul.

    It’s obvious Apple will announce some big new features at WWDC for these new beasts.

    I’m betting on Apple’s Pro apps debuting. I want Logic Pro.

    I don’t like the idea of macOS running on iPad. Seems too complicated for a simple device. I guess if you attach a keyboard it could give the user an option.

    When the ipad is in laptop mode, let it run a laptop class OS
    When the iPad is in tablet mode , let it run a tablet class OS.

    I don't see the problem.
