M1X MacBook Pro launch still on track for 2021, according to analyst

Apple's September event focused entirely on its mobile family, both iPhones and iPads, but not all of its customers are in the market for a new portable device.

Even disregarding the Android-based Surface Duo and its canceled Surface Neo, the manufacturers like ASUS and Lenovo that flaunted such futuristic computers have largely gone silent on that matter. It isn't just PC makers, however, who have had thoughts on dual-screen computers, and Apple's newly-awarded MacBook patent show the possibilities of such a device, presuming they ever got built and sold.
