Dear Steve Jobs,
we all love the Mac, the iMac, the Macbook Pro and the whole family. The iPad is also very successful, but I’m not getting one.
Instead I’m getting a MacPad, the new product you’re lunching next year. Because you are, aren’t you?
With an iPad you run around the house or the office and you have your emails, web and music with you. But you don’t have OS X with Photoshop and GarageBand. Which is OK because you’re not going to use them while walking around anyway.
Now you need to work on Photoshop and other professional applications; you go and sit at your desk and use your Macbook Pro, or iMac. What about the iPad? It’s gonna sit there. Useless.
Combine the iPad with the Mac.
Here’s the idea:
You’re sitting at your desk, working on your Macbook Pro. You’re using Photoshop, GarageBand and more on OS X. The OS X, Hard Drive, RAM and everything is in the bottom part, where the keyboard is (just as it is now).
Suddenly you have to run out of the office for a meeting.
Simply detach the screen from the rest and go. That screen you just grabbed is actually more than a screen, it’s an iPad. It functions as a simple screen when it’s attached to its body, but when on the go, it uses iOS, its own hard drive, RAM etc. So you can keep checking your emails or the web on the run and bring with you that Keynote that you have to present to your client at the meeting. Your photos, documents or videos will be synchronized… of course.
Because Apple is a “mobile” company!
So what’s it gonna be? $1299?
