Apple In this day and age of iOS this and iPad that you'd nearly forget it, but the gadget maker from Cupertino actually makes personal computers and an accompanying operating system as well. It's been nearly three years since the last substantial release, so it's about time: Apple has just announced a press event titled 'Back to Mac', with a lion on the invite.

TFS:

I would be surprised if more computers were not like that in the future. The fact that windows 7 and Ubuntu still suck at touch (yeah, I've tried Maverick on it - it's not yet good enough) allows Apple to compete effectively in that space, especially when they have lots of guys working with touch anyway.

I could envision using 12" laptop in the same way.


I would be surprised if apple would risk cannibalizing their iPad sales with a convertible laptop/tablet right now though. They aren't going to be pushing into the convertible laptop space until someone else makes one that doesn't quite suck so much and threatens their tablet sales.
