1 I can't imagine a lawsuit against ARM like the AMD one having a chance.  Those A55 cores are full cores with their own instruction decoders, ALUs, and so on.
A laptop with a 7c probably wouldn't be very performant, but people still buy low-end laptops.

2 Nobody actually uses LN2 for real-world work, right?  It's just to see how high you can get your benchmarks, isn't it?

3 Desktops being dead:  most of my company's clients seem to be moving the regular employees over to laptops.
Which is kind of funny since there's still a price premium.

4 We're a mostly-laptop company as well, with some iMacs for the design folks, and locked-down desktops in areas involving customer and financial data. Full-disk encryption for laptops, largely due to the number of people stupid enough to conspicuously put their bag into the trunk of their car when they arrive at a restaurant.

5 I like my big desktop because I can fix it. Well, usually. I'm still no closer to figuring out the random bluescreen thing.

6 At my company, that's not really an option, which is probably typical. We have a corporate mandate to buy Dells, and we get the warranty, so on the rare instances there's a problem, we typically get a new hard drive overnighted or whatever.  Once, years ago, they sent a tech out to put a new motherboard in a laptop.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
