John Dvorak of PCMag believes that the Mac will be phased out and the whole line will be replaced by iPads. Part of his thinking is based on the latest Apple commercial for the iPad Pro, which highlights Apple's attitude towards computers: a little girl rejects the notion of a computer itself and thus separates an iOS device from everything you think of as a PC. What does this say about the Macintosh? I'm seeing the parallel with the Apple II and "Apple II Forever" extravaganza. It's the end of the line. Apple mentions the Mac less and less at its big events. The company knows that the machine is a drain on resources that detracts from its new core business, iOS and its mobile devices.
