1. Let's be clear, we're all speculating here including you, Glo, and myself. Apple hasn't confirmed anything. We often write in a "done deal" way but everything is still speculation.Apparently you didn't read the thread title. We are, in fact, discussing exactly what I posted about.
Glo. already pointed out the fallacy of No. 3.
As to No. 4
Kuo 'believes' - it doesn't say that Kuo 'knows'? It's a research note and, almost certainly, has a caveat that this note is speculative and bears certain risks. Maybe he's right, maybe not. We do not have any concrete information at this time.
We don't even have leaks of engineering prototypes - nothing concrete at all, AFAIK.
If you have any proof of your claims, please post them. I'm quite fine with being proved wrong on the basis of facts.
2. "Kuo believes that Arm-based processors will significantly enhance the competitive advantage of the Mac lineup". Your quote regarding the usage of the word "believes" is actually referring to Kuo's opinion. The report is more confident than just Kuo's opinion. Kuo lists an actual estimated timeframe of when Apple will release ARM based Macs.
The bolded part if only your speculation. Not a fact, unless you have insider information.Nr 3 is only your speculation. Not a fact, unless you have insider information.
Apple moving to ARM Macs will start happening the moment when they will port Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro to iPads. Not before. So far it hasn't happened, and yet - everybody says that it is a done deal that Apple is moving to ARM on Macs.
