Apple’s first ARM based laptop without an Intel Processor may be released next year.
According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who’s become famous for often correctly predicting Apple trends before they occur, the new Mac is coming sometime within the next 12 to 18 months and will feature an in-house processor not developed by Intel.
