    Just watched this, and I am with him. Touchscreen macs are incoming SOON! The evidence is right in the redesign of MacOS. Hiding in plain sight.

    Finally! Lack of touchscreen was one of the reasons Apple laptops always appalled me.

    Yep, I am hoping for a 2 in 1 mbp with full touch, pencil support and still retain the touch bar. It would make for the ultimate creative device on the go.

    I won't be surprise that months down the road, Apple will probably announce a new Apple device that may named as "Apple Mega Turners".
    Which may jolly well be 2 in 1s that already comes in Win and Chromium flavors...

    I am guessing the "but there's one more thing" will be the touchmacbookpro at the phone event. They plan to have ARM series macbooks by the end of the year.

    Look at how powerful and efficient Qualcomm+Adreno, MTK+Mali, and the upcoming Samsung+AMD ARM "APUs" can be... With Ryzen going towards 5nm or smaller if possible, Apple will be the Tortise in the race, when the blue bunny wakes up and hop passes it...

    HA HA HA. Think again Ed. Apple's silicon will not be slow. Not by a long shot.

    Certainly... Apple'll not be slow. They had achieved performance with their big sized IPad, isn't it? How big was that? 12inch or 13? Anyway those big pads hv some significant indications to be send to consumers... "We've make our pads big! Now... It's only how are we going to perfect the physical keyboards. What would the consumers prefer, attached and flippable to the back? Or magnetically removable?" :D

    Well the threat to APPLE was imminent since last year...

    ...that it probably had inspired APPLE to make it an official option this year!​

    Considering the current arm chips in windows PC's got smoked by a 2 generation old apple a chip is all the evidence you need.
