Apple 10 inch Multi-touch: Atom or ARM?

by Mike Levin SEO & Datamaster, 03/19/2009

With Apple ordering those big iPhone-like 10 inch multi-touch screens, there’s only one question on my mind: the new Intel Atom processor, or the iPhone-like ARM processor? One would provide a huge base of Macintosh OS X software, while the other would provide phone-like always-on behavior.

My guess (and wish) is clear. I’ll tell it to you by asking a simple question: do you want to start up a “PC” every time you want to Google something, check your Facebook, or read a chapter? No? Me either. My money’s on an always-on ubiquitous computing ARM device. Big iPod touch. The now-proven-viable Kindle form factor, but done right in Apple’s style.

Have 2 or 3 sitting around on your home. Screw a PC in every room. These things will pay for themselves in your electric bill alone.
