Rethinking Mac Hardware

Jason Snell wrote a great piece for Macworld about the need for a Mac product-design renaissance. I couldn’t agree more. With all of the opportunities afforded by Apple silicon, I would love to see the Apple design team untethered to come up with the next great iMac and laptop designs.

Microsoft has made some very intriguing designs over the last few years for machines that run inferior processors and an inferior operating system. Can you imagine how great it would be to see out-of-the box thinking for macOS and Apple silicon?

My dream iMac is at least 27” with a slim bezel design and a hinge, like the Microsoft Surface Studio, so that when vertical, it is a Mac, but when tilted down into drafting table mode, it is a giant iPad. Designs like that are now possible. Let’s hope we see them.
