The Lenovo + its power adapter weighs more than all my Apple gear with an 87 watt power adapter, plus my Ibis Wireless charger.
They're working on Thunderbolt3 for ARM. Then, they'll release a machine that has an Intel "sidekick" processor for backward compatibility.
Intel won't allow emulation of x86 on ARM and, unfortunately, AMD bargained most of its rights away, such that if Apple were to buy AMD, it won't help. Of course, they could buy Intel, but I don't think they want that kind of overhead.
I would actually consider buying one, but...
1. If you have a problem, you can't go to an Apple store.
2. Yes, I want someone in Russia to reassemble my iPhone and put in microphones that beam straight to Putin.
3. So now that they know you have more money than brains, it's worthwhile to steal your financial information and reroute it to Mother Russia.
Such a shame though. They are...purty...shiny, too!
Since Apple doesn't sell servers, or sell its custom ASIC to any outside manufacturers, Apple's migration doesn't really hurt Intel. Intel makes the big money on servers. Apple is less than 3% of Intel's overall business, and that's including modems and lesser components. The volume on Macs is insignificant compared to the number of Chromebook and Windows PC devices sold.
