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.

I would be surprised if apple would risk cannibalizing their iPad sales with a convertible laptop/tablet right now though.

I don't think it would be cannibalization necessarily. Mac doesn't run iOS apps, and the form factor of convertible is "heavier", with (probably) bigger screen.

However, pushing to this direction would (again) give Apple something Microsoft doesn't have, and create a *real* value proposition for owning a Mac (currently, benefits of Mac are mostly imaginary/subjective, apart from not needing a virus scanner).
