To hell with surface books!
Says Apple CEO Tim Cook in so many words. Based on an article found on Engadget.com, Apple is not going to make a Surface Book competitor with it’s yet to be seen 12.9″ iPad Pro. Tim says the reason being is because they would have to make too many compromises in their designs:
“…So we want to make the best tablet in the world and the best Mac in the world. And putting those two together would not achieve either. You’d begin to compromise in different ways.” – Tim Cook, Apple
So then what is the point of the iPad pro? MacRumors says it will have a 10 hour battery life. They also say it will have a 5.6 million pixel display and that’s its internals will be on par with Mac desktops and previous Apple Laptops. Well, Apple has been pushing their new business alliance with IBM ever since it’s announcement so we speculate the best things will come in terms of software and functionality and while Apple has done well for themselves with software, it’s a slippery slope to climb. If this is no Surface Book killer, then Apple is competing against themselves for your attention with the new iPad Pro.
