We all want a refrigerator and a toaster hybrid

The famous Tim Cook's statement about Microsoft's Surface effort, i.e. a laptop and a tablet in once device is all but too familiar at this point of time. His prophecies on how this sort of cramming two different form factors into one device will fail, seems to be true and even Microsoft kind of admitting it (Surface results in more losses for Microsoft). However admit at.. at one point of time, we all have dreamed about such a mythical Apple hybrid, one that combines the elegance and ease of use of the iPad and the power and feature set for MacBook. And looks like we are not alone in this. iMore ran a survey on what the future dream Mac should be and the majority (almost one third) of the respondents wanted a hybrid device from Apple. Microsoft as usual I think had a good vision (of a hybrid computer), but again as usual screwed up the implementation. And also there is really something like being "too early into the market", if the market or technology is not ready for a breakthrough device, it is wise not to try and fail and rather wait it out till the time is right. I think this is what Apple does the best, keep saying no to something till it thinks that the market and the customers are ready for that latest and the greatest technology. By the way I emailed Tim Cook as early as in 2012, asking him about an Apple's hybrid, but unfortunately I diid not get any reply. 

The largest number of you (survey respondents) wanted a convertible MacBook Air/iPad Air combo device
