Just saw this on YouTube: And I was surprised by how differently Apple behaved back then compared to now. The Mac Pro was all about being upgradeable, with plenty of space inside, with an assortment of ports and PCI slots for full sized GPUs that can take up two slots. But most amazingly, the price was reduced by a lot and they specifically made a point to say that it's a myth that Apple computers are more expensive, comparing the Mac Pro to a similarly configured Dell machine which was more expensive. Could they ever do that today, with their current Macs? I haven't noticed this until I watched this video and other ones from this era, that Apple has become so much more smug and self-confident that they no longer worry about pleasing people. They no longer feel the need to prove that no, they aren't that expensive, or that indeed, they are including the very best technology to make everyone happy. When the price of the Mac Pro was revealed, the audience went crazy. Would that happen today? Today everyone just claps because they're supposed to, but you don't feel that they're going crazy for the products that are being announced.
