I was looking for a how dare you, but liked that one better.
Chromebooks are locked phone ecosystem and lower end but functional hardware for cheap. This will be the same, but expensive and passed off as fancy. Last thing they will want is a side by side to chromebooks.

Well, R.I.P. There goes the high-end professional market for new Macs. Video production, music mixing, etc. Heck, even "gaming" on a Mac might cease to exist; instead they'll just allow developers to import their iOS apps and iPad apps and that'll be good enough.

It's not that it doesn't make sense making your own CPUs; it was a great decision with the iPhone.
The iPhone was, and still is, a huge percentage of their profit. They can afford investing a ton into SoC development.

Macs, however, only make up a very small percentage of their profit... competing with Intel and AMD is going to be impossible on a reasonable budget. They'd need to invest too much money to compete, which means, they won't compete and instead their most popular Macs (Macbooks > iMacs > Mac Minis) will be relegated to being "good" computers for general use and light work but largely useless for the pro market that need high performance systems.

So I gather the iMac Pro and Mac Pro will probably remain Intel and receive little attention.

On the plus side... their laptops might end up with really great battery life?

Apple has always had a strong stance on being vertically integrated. They run a pretty tight ship which is why you'll never find them having black-friday/door buster sales



Still, this won't stop people from dropping 4-10k on an inferior machine.

Well they did say they intend to transition fully within 2 years. So there's that.

This really needs to be a wake up call for Intel (Although im pretty sure they already knew about this awhile ago), with AMD trading blows with them and in some cases dishing out knockout punches, if they don't start delivering they will switch places with AMD.

I wonder how the printer driver support will be handled. Printer drivers are hell.

I think this is more getting away from Intel. Also, you can see Apple does not do their laptops justice. They have been holding back Macbook performance with terrible cooling.
