At their Notebook Media event today, Apple announced new 15" MacBook PRos with improved graphics performance, and glass Multi-Touch trackpads.
This part of the Q&A really struck a chord with me. To summarize from the keynote:
Will the new MacBook cannibalize MacBook Pro Sales?
-No. Pros buy MacBook Pros.
Are you going to offer a matte screen?
-No. Well offset reflection with more brightness - consumers love it.
OK, so consumers will love their glossy screen on their MacBook. Good for them. But what about the pros who buy the MacBook Pros as answered in the first question? We are not consumers - we are pros! Dont give pros the things consumers like in your pro products. Thats why you have two product lines in the first place Apple. Terrible.
