Default Is Apple Planning on Kicking the Mac to the Curb?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/12/02/03/apple_ceo_hints_at_no_arm_based_macbook_air_as_ipad_to_soon_satisfy_that_niche.html' target='_blank'>http://www.appleinsider.com/article...that_niche.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"After meeting with Apple chief executive Tim Cook and chief financial officer Peter Openheimer, Citi analysts noted a strong iPad outlook leaving little likelihood of an ARM-based MacBook Air, vast growth potential in China, an indistinct future role for Apple TV, and the strength and importance of iCloud."</em></p><p><img height="251" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/zt/auto/1289832145.usr105634.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>The Citi analyst feels that Apple is going to focus on iPads and that the Macs will be left to higher end purchases so that they don't overlap in usage. I'm not so sure about this, as I find distinct uses for both my iPad and my Macbook Air. But that being said, I am using my iPad more and more as the apps that are coming out are really taking advantage of the iPad and it's capabilities. What are your thoughts on this analyst's opinion?</p>

No but I see a further consolidation of the portable lineup and the EOL for the Mac Pro. I think Apple would prefer to get rid of optical drives across the entire Mac lineup. MBP's as they exist today will become a special order only device in the very near future.
