An iPad-MacBook hybrid would be a bad idea – Tim Cook

An iPad-MacBook hybrid would be a bad idea – Tim Cook 

While the iPad Pro can replace your PC, Apple has no plans of creating a “converged Mac and iPad” because it just not a good idea, according to Tim Cook, Apple CEO.

“We feel strongly that customers are not really looking for a converged Mac and iPad,” he said in an interview with business new site IndependentIE. “Because what that would wind up doing, or what we’re worried would happen is that neither experience would be as good as the customer want.”

iPad Pro seeks a new market

Top 5 business tablets for business executives

Many professionals have taken to using even the previous version of iPad as a work device when traveling although iPad sales have been in a decline in recent years.

The release of the iPad Pro is seen in the industry as an attempt by Apple to capture a new tablet market that focuses on business users.

Running off the new iOS 9 operating systems and powered by an A9X chip with 64-bit M9 motion co-processor, the iPad Pro managed to clock faster performance and graphics capability than other PCs in certain computer benchmark tests.

Earlier this month, Cook was interviewed in the Daily Telegraph as suggesting the PC has reached the end of its usefulness.

“Why would you buy a PC anymore?” he asked.

The Apple CEO, however, appeared to be limiting obsolesces to Windows-based personal computers.

“We don’t regard Macs and PCs to be the same,” Cook said.
