According to reports, Apple is uninterested (at least for now) in producing 2-in-1 laptop/tablet devices or laptops with touchscreen capability - ostensibly in an effort to keep its tablet and laptop product categories discrete. And I appreciate that, as someone in the market for a laptop who would prefer that the device focus on being powerful rather than versatile. This is an interesting choice given that the competition seems to be going in the opposite direction. Note the latest device from Toshiba (http://www.toshiba.com/us/computers/laptops/satellite/Radius/P50W-BST2N22) on top of those already announced from Lenovo, Microsoft, Asus, and others that are incorporating 2-in-1 and touchscreen capabilities. As a digression, I would be interested in knowing from others more technologically advanced than me (which would be most participants herein) how fast this Toshiba device is likely to be and how good the screen quality is going to be. I notice that in failing to come with a permanent Microsoft Office bundle it significantly lacks the value to get much done from the get go without a substantial further investment in software, though its versatility and memory capabilities are impressive. It seems that the Apple vision for the laptop is likely to be manifest with the reported next iteration of the MacBook Air: super slim (fanless), retina display, and possibly wireless - while maintaining high end battery life and processing power. Whether a microprocessor exists that can do all of this seems to be the question, as Apple seemingly can certainly otherwise design such a device. Hopefully this is the Apple priority (though I recognize they are banking a lot on the Apple Watch) in the near term. The iPad is nice as a camera and film-editing device to enhance vacations (though I realize some people do such for a living, but undoubtedly use higher end equipment for such) that can also communicate and read. But if Apple wants to make lives better it arguably can do so most substantially by impacting the work they do - which is very often a matter of analyzing and creating documents and numbers plus presenting and communicating the same. And this means a super powerful and super mobile laptop computer. Hopefully Apple is near turning the corner on this.
