Apple “Star”, new Windows ARM PCs: why you’ll want one eventually

As far as personal computing, that is, desktops and laptops, goes, Intel has the lion's share of the market. In terms of computer architecture, x86 (and x64) still dominate what most consumers will consider to be the "serious" kind of computers, despite how ARM-based devices, thanks to smartphones, actually win by the numbers.

Apple may be overthinking the new Mac Pro

Apple may be overthinking the new Mac Pro

The new Mac Pro should be easy for Apple, and the fact that it isn't is making people worried. A modern workstation has a lot in common with a workstation a decade old, or two: the fastest components available in a form-factor that doesn't tie you down. If there's one thing we know about Apple, however, it's that if there's an easy way to do something, or an alternative way that could be considered more elegant, it has an uncontrollable desire to chase the latter.
