It's a dangerous time to get involved in Appleyland since it looks like they are going with ARM in the very near future, breaking all existing software and raising other serious questions...

“Computationally I can see a Core i3 or low-end Core i5,” says Patrick Moorhead, founder of Moor Insights & Strategy, comparing ARM’s abilities to entry-level Intel chips. “I can't imagine that by 2020 they’d have a processor anywhere near the capabilities of a Xeon or a Core i7.”

My personal predictions remain that:

a) They are going to do it, to make a couple of hundred bucks extra profit per unit.
b) They will go many-core for marketing reasons, perhaps with one or two high clocked cores, also for marketing reasons.
