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

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.

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.

I believe that the base price includes 256 GB of Flash rather than 16 GB.

Interesting. Ios cannot run in a VM on a PC though. Interesting...

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?

Daniel, 15" is the max for me because of travel. I get around that for engineering work or personal online activity with a second surface (monitor) when not on the road. The retinal display on the NextGen MBP should rock.
