Apple

Industry sources and analysts suggest that Apple is keen to expand its semiconductor capabilities further. They say the company is interested in building core processors for notebooks, modem chips for iPhones, and a chip that integrates touch, fingerprint and display driver functions.

Apple is building ARM laptops. The interesting question is whether they'll run iOS or macOS.

My money's on the former.

If Microsoft had released a WinCE laptop or light weight CE desktop (they did for B2B client server applications) in the 90s they would have stayed king of the hill. Apple should not make the same mistake and artificially preserve the domain of its "desktop" OS.
