Mac Studio answered a request that developers have always had: modularity is necessary. And while at its most Mac Pro-only, anyone who wants to can now have a powerful monitor-independent desktop.
This modularity can come from Apple laptops. In AppleInsider they discovered a recently published patent from the company in which we see how a hypothetical MacBook Pro could “split” into several pieces in a manner similar to that of Microsoft Surface.
WHICH COMPUTER SHOULD I BUY Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, iMac or iPad Applesfera Tutorials
The “all in one” more faithful to this term
The way to imagine it is a MacBook Pro to which we could remove the keyboard and trackpad, possibly to use it as an iPad. One could also place the screen in a more comfortable position on a table, using the keyboard and trackpad without being glued to it.
The interlocking system would be done with magnets, something that we already see with the Magic Keyboard of the iPad Pro. There is even the possibility of using a small projector in the keyboard part in order to project the image instead of depending on a screen. That sounds like quite a few possibilities. apple too should study the communication protocol between the rooms of these devices
The advantage would be that we would have an all-terrain Mac. It could serve as a desktop by projecting the screen onto a surface, then a screen could be added to use as a laptop or it would even serve as an iPad at specific times if the keyboard was removed. Eliminate the need (perhaps) to have a separate desktop and laptop
Remember that this is a patent: it does not confirm that it is under development. Apple studied it, just that. The future will tell if they decided to execute it or if it is a proposal that has been put away in a drawer. Such a convertible would save users from having multiple Macs and that would mean less sales, but who knows.
