Apple’s Official Black Friday ‘Deals’ Are Here, But You Can Do Much Better Elsewhere, by Chance Miller, 9to5Mac

Apple has never been one to go all-out with Black Friday discounts and this year is no different. You can score a solid gift card with your purchase, but we highly recommend you go to another retailer for the cash discounts.

Why Apple’s Next Laptop Should Run iOS, by Jason Snell, Macworld

For people who want a tablet that can act like a laptop on occasion, the iPad Pro is the right product. But I’d love to see Apple make a product just on the other side of that divide—a product that’s a laptop first and foremost, but can act more or less like a tablet when it wants to. Such a product will never be as good a tablet as an iPad, but that’s okay—because it would be a better laptop.

Why aim low? Make an iPad that is a great tablet and a great laptop. Surprise us, Apple.

(Microsoft will probably claim the Surface Pro is already there. Of course, you can't have a great tablet nor a great laptop if all you are running is Windows. There's no Continuality or Handoff with a mobile phone.)
