It is cute how it is said, "Apple was able to keep entry level prices for its 13-inch MacBooks to $1,199" You've got to be kidding. They have more money than some European countries and the US treasury. Does this mean they were able to find a new way to exploint Chinese workers?

Rick, Only hobbyist companies have ported any EDA tools to Mac because of the small market share. I was surprised to see NO 17" MacBook Pro because I've been using a 17" laptop for 9 years now and would never downsize to the 15" display, big mistake on Apple's part.

Is there any interest or work in native EDA apps for the Mac OS X?

Intel-based Macbooks can boot Windows, if you insist. Many BYOD's involve people installing Windows VM's on their Macbook Pro to run EDA tools.

Even if Macbooks become cheaper, the legacy cost is too high for companies to switch.

Apple's expansion of its cloud services such as picture services and the 3-D maps, highlights the continued move of OEMs up software stack.
