    Just reading the news on the front page news regarding the Arm processor in the the next Macbook Air and it got me thinking.

    Are the rumours mixing things up in respect of two product of the iPad Pro and the next Air, I'm starting to think that they are one in the same product with a Macbook style iPad but with the larger screen, keyboard but running a iOS?

    I think the cross over between two products would be too similar and I think it would be a nice step in-between a touch screen device and a traditional keyboard/screen layout, I know Apple aren't fans of laptop form factor and touch screen.

    I think it's certainly within the realm of possibility.

    There's a whole host of people I've set up with Macs that would be better served with iOS but with a bigger screen and physical keyboard. Aunts, uncles, that sort of crowd.

    Now whether that's a big enough market and one that Apple would want to serve are the two main questions.
