An ARM MacBook could revolutionize the industry

An ARM MacBook could revolutionize the industry

It's a strange week to be talking about Apple dumping Intel. Only a few days ago, the company was proudly unveiling its new iMac line-up, relying on Core i5 and Core i7 processors - along with AMD GPUs - to make them the fastest all-in-ones Apple has offered to-date. Yet at the same time as Intel's latest quad-core chips are finding their way into what Apple's Phil Schiller describes as "the world's best desktop," there's also talk that the company's close relationship with Intel is about to get served with divorce papers. ARM is coming, and the computing industry will never be the same again.

Apple’s Big Success: Devaluing Everything

Apple’s Big Success: Devaluing Everything

It was while writing SlashGear's Nintendo 3DS review that it really struck me, the disparity between "traditional" software - whether that's for your desktop or a game for your console - and the new "app" ecosystem is Apple's biggest accomplishment. Where once computer software was a $40+ boxed product - and where 3DS games, and those for other consoles, are still $40+ boxed cartridges - it's now a $0.99 download, instant gratification at a cost that won't wrinkle your conscience. Tech is cheap, apps are throwaway, and Apple is to blame.

Those details point to a price of $790 and Tegra 2 for the brains of the device. That tablet will be a hard sale at that price I think.
