Apple’s Phil Schiller Discusses the New MacBook Pros

Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, spoke with the Independent about the just-released MacBook Pro models. Schiller admitted to being surprised by the backlash engendered by the new laptop, but he said that Apple’s online store has taken more orders for the new models than any previous professional laptop. He also explained why the new laptops have headphone jacks, why they lack SD card slots, and why we can’t activate Siri on the Mac via “Hey Siri” without an Accessibility hack.Generic Globefollow link

There is no mandate. As the link you provided makes clear, IBM has only made Macs an *option* for their employees to choose.
