Let’s Play a Little Game Called “Would You Buy This Apple Device?”

macbook

Two and a half years ago, I wrote an article asking a simple question. If Apple were to create an iPad hybrid in the body of a MacBook, would you buy it? There were patents and speculation at the time that made it reasonable to consider such a question. That, and the iPad Pro was beginning to push the boundaries of what we expect from an Apple tablet.

Things have certainly changed today and such a device doesn’t seem nearly as far away. Over the last two years we have gotten a new iPad Pro design, a new Apple Pencil, iPadOS, USB-C and full touchpad support. We even have a Magic Keyboard with built-in touchpad that can virtually transform an iPad Pro into something very, very close to a laptop. However, I still think the question of an  iPadOS device in the shell of a MacBook is relevant, at least enough to speculate over.

It was easy to assume they wouldn’t be the only new Apple items released before the Christmas shopping season, either, as Apple rolled out a few new items over consecutive days back in the Spring via press releases.

The End of the Apple MacBook…For Now

Apple’s 12″ MacBook is no more. Today, the company stopped selling what was its thinnest and lightest laptop, taking up the mantle of the original MacBook Air when it was released in 2015. In fact, the MacBook Air would fade to the background to the point that many thought Apple might kill it off in favor of an expanded MacBook line.

But that’s not how things worked out. Instead, Apple didn’t update or expand the MacBook line. They took a different approach and revamped the MacBook Air last year. In retrospect, it looks like that was the first step towards the MacBook’s quiet end today.

Apple finally sent out the invites today, and Tuesday, October 30 is the day. The event is being held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn New York. While this announcement has been the worst kept secret in tech since the iPhone event wrapped with no iPad news, the date is probably the least interesting part of this announcement and invite. Here are a few things that stand out to me:

Apple’s iPhone Event is a Week Away, and the Rumors are Flying Fast

At this time one week from now, the dust will all be settled and we will know what the heck Apple is up to. Today, not so much. I thought 9to5Mac’s flurry a weeks ago would take a bit of the air out of rumor silly season, but as today showed, that answer is an emphatic NO.

Here are some of the new predictions of what Apple will be releasing, and the names they will go by. The good, the bad, and the just plain dumb.
