Apple’s Lenovo

Craig Hockenberry wants Apple to do with the Mac Pro what IBM did with the ThinkPad:

Licensing just the operating system was a disaster for Apple. Professional customers don’t have the time to build and maintain their own Hackintoshes. Any partnership to build Mac hardware would need to be structured so that it benefits Apple, the partner, and customer alike.

Just like IBM and their clients have benefitted from Lenovo.

I don’t foresee Apple actually doing this, but then again, I never would have foreseen Apple going over 1,000 days without touching the Mac Pro, either.
