I thought this was an interesting perspective.

Geekbench tests of the iPhone X's A11 chip found that it was almost a match for the 2017 MacBook Pro.

Things that make you go hmm.

I imagine that we won't see these chips pop up in the Mac Pro any time soon, or even the higher-end MacBook Pros. After all, those machines are designed to appeal to professional users who won't want to sacrifice their existing software setups. The MacBook, however, seems like an ideal candidate for Apple's first custom CPU.

Generally I'd agree in concept but the question is form. Wouldn't it be more useful to keep the iOS interface, making it a real artist's tool (again I'm thinking of a Wacom tablet type computer) rather then the same "old" Macbook computer interaction with just an Apple designed chip?

I think we'd be looking at innovation (or at least hybridization) given Apple's design proclivities rather than same old same old with a new CPU/GPU.
