You need a computer. What are you going to buy? Mac or Windows? MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac or Mac Pro? Or, iPad Pro? Apple gives the customers a couple of choices, but maybe not the best choices. I have someone to share.
Obviously, what kind of computer a person needs depends on a variety of factors ranging from budget to experience to requirements. Mac notebook sales have grown while iPad and Mac desktop do not have it. I have a solution for all Apple's current product sources.
Of Mus And Macs
Apple is a very large company with a nominal number of products; as everyone has millions of hundreds to millions of people in customer base, but a few problems and holes in the product lines.
Currently, let me leave iPhone aside. It seems to be the one product line on Apple, which does not need solutions born from my southern hospitality. The same goes for Watch. So far, it's the best of smartwatches, not completely standalone yet, and if Apple solves the problem of glucose monitoring sensor, it becomes a massive seller.
It gives me the ability to fix Mac vs. iPad Pro console. You need a computer. What are you going to buy?
iPad Pro ̵
There is my solution to help Apple reverse the iPad's flagship sales. Yes, the price list of $ 329 iPad makes the device more competitive with cheap Windows touchwriters and Chromebooks, but we talk more to the height; devices that need to do work. Apple needs to change iPad Pro to be a complete device, including built-in but removable keyboard. In addition, Apple needs to add trackpad and mouse support and an easier to manage file system.
It would be a long way to make iPad Pro a machine like able to replace a Mac.
MacBook Air – At the other end of the scale is my new version of Mac. A MacBook under the current MacBook line, which is likely to be updated this year. Let's call my recommendation 2017 MacBook Air, the first of a new generation of Macintosh at the entry level.
First, the new MacBook Air should come in a single size; 12-inch retina display should be sufficient. No Intel Inside, either. This $ 899 touchscreen Mac would have an Apple-designed ARM CPU inside. No, Windows will not run. No, it only uses apps from the Mac App Store (which looks more like an app ghost town every day, loosens sandbox settings, boys). Yes, it has the aforementioned touch screen and a keyboard. No, it's not upgradeable.
MacBook Air can be Apple's easiest Mac yet, easily the cheapest Mac notebook, and align full square at the entry level; just like $ 329 iPad, but competitive in price with a tricked iPad Pro with keyboard.
See? Apple's problems are easy to solve.
Mac on the desktop
Wait. What about the desktop macs? Oh, they? Easy peasy. Just see the latest and best Intel CPUs in Mac mini, iMac, and sit back and wait for the modular Mac Pro next year. IMac needs a pro-level machine. I'm thinking about Xeon. As for the Mac mini, it's just not high in the height, something Apple could fix with a simple price adjustment. For example, an i7 Mac mini with 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD storage – no mouse, no screen, no keyboard – taps the weights of $ 1,799.
For a Mac mini. It's more than a Retina iMac. It's just wrong.
Look at how easy it is to solve some of Apple's most basic issues. No need for annual engineering meetings or long marketing meetings, or managerial relocation or even a spreadsheet to get things in order (who ordered the current Mac Pro, anyway?). Come on, Apple.
