Which computer will be first to get an in-house ARM chip?
It seems the 12″ Macbook is next due for a refresh, and it seems to be a model where they experiment more (first with butterfly keyboard and USB-C). So that is likely to get the first in-house ARM chip, right?
But if [the benchmarks that are speculated to be Apple’s testing of these chips](https://bgr.com/2019/03/15/macbook-arm-processors-benchmarks-beat-intel-scores-leak-says/) are correct, the performance is better than the 2018 i9 MBP, would they really put all that performance in a thin 12″?
I wonder, will the shift to ARM have the primary selling point of performance and go straight to the Macbook Pro line, or the primary selling point of efficiency and battery and go first to the thin Macbook? They may be already preparing the OS and software developers to be prepared for the change, but going straight to the Macbook Pro seems more problematic since generally a broader spectrum of high-end applications will be expected to run well (or at all!) on it and there may be a pretty awkward transition period of months or years before that really happens.
What do you think, how will Apple make the transition to in-house ARM chips?
