Apple just told the world it has no idea who the Mac is for(

    why is Apple not putting out flawless, perfect products that revolutionize entire industry segments every year?

    1045 days since the Mac Pro’s last update. And, 449 days for the update prior. An update doesn’t seem likely until January at least. Maybe the Mac Pro is dead? Who knows? And there’s the issue — signalling. Right now, people who rely on certain types of Macs can’t buy a Mac with even remotely up to date hardware, and the equipment they rely on might be discontinued.

    The reaction is about uncertainty.

      Oh, I was talking about the negative reactions every time Apple puts out a new product like the new MBP. I agree that it sucks for people waiting for a new Mac Pro.

        Yeah. I would probably argue that the issues aren’t contained to just the Mac Pro though, and I just don't feel confident they are going to be the leader in the next wave of computers for creative professionals and professionals — computers used to turn humans into super humans.

        I hope I’m wrong, but the Surface Studio looks more like a confident vision of how things should be than a 30 × whatever point iPod touch attached to a MacBook Pro keyboard.
