Tim Cook: Apple won't create 'converged' MacBook and iPad

Tim Cook, an interview with The Independent

“We feel strongly that customers are not really looking for a converged Mac and iPad,” said Cook. “Because what that would wind up doing, or what we’re worried would happen, is that neither experience would be as good as the customer wants. So we want to make the best tablet in the world and the best Mac in the world. And putting those two together would not achieve either. You’d begin to compromise in different ways.”

I agree, but the iPad Pro is clearly pushing the limits of iOS. It just seems grossly overpowered for such a simple operating system, and it screams for a modified version that would take better advantage of the form factor and sheer horsepower in the hardware.
