Why the iPad can’t replace a PC – explained by Apple

  • Apple’s SVP of software engineering Craig Federighi gave an interesting answer to Wired when asked if we’ll ever see a Mac computer with a touchscreen.

  • “We really feel that the ergonomics of using a Mac are that your hands are rested on a surface, and that lifting your arm up to poke a screen is a pretty fatiguing thing to do,” Federighi said.

  • Federighi’s statement unwittingly explains why the iPad is not a good replacement for a laptop or desktop computer.
