Time Magazine Makes Two Predictions for Apple in 2013 - Patently Apple

Interesting speculation, but it misses a key point of the “toaster fridge” perspective, which has more to do with user experience than hardware configurations; an iPad with a detachable keyboard is still an iPad (see this page for the full Time article)

“Time's Tim Bajarin dreamed a little by stating, "imagine a sleekly designed hybrid that perhaps has the design lines of the MacBook Air, but with an iPad screen that detaches from its ultra-thin keyboard. For lack of a better term I call it the MacBook AirPad or iPad Air. I know Tim Cook has denounced this type of design, suggesting it is like attaching a 'toaster to a refrigerator,' but a sleek and elegant iPad/keyboard device designed by Apple would be of interest to a lot of people, myself included." Great minds think alike as we pounded the table on that poing back in May.”
