The concept of a device, which can be transformed from a standalone tablet to a full-feature laptop isn’t anything new and thanks to devices, such as the Transformer Prime, it has became quite popular in the last ear or so. Despite the users’ obvious interest towards such gadgets, though, Tim Cook – the current CEO of Apple, doesn’t think such devices are good for the users. During a conference conversation, after announcing the company’s financial results from the first quarter of 2012, Cook shared his thoughts on such devices, which work as both a tablet and a laptop and according to him they’re not convenient enough. Later, when asked what he thinks about Microsoft and Intel’s strategy about encouraging manufacturers to make touchscreen ultrabooks, he said, that Apple currently has no intention of making such devices.
