if anything, even a silent update to more recent internals would be at least a sign that they understand the nature of the computer industry and how you cannot sit back. but there's been no cpu updates. no gpu updates, no harddrive updates. Not even a thunderbolt update to thunderbolt 3. not a single update to a pro model device that people buy to earn a living on, really REALLY showcases to me that Apple's executives either do not understand the computer industry, or are completely out of touch with reality. the 2013 Mac Pro, was already slightly out of date on launch. it's now 4 years later, updates haven't happened. So everyone else can now operate faster and more efficiently, but if you're in Apple's ecosystem, you haven't had any improvement to your computational ability. that alone could kill someones ability to bid on a project, or fit another project into queue. At least with the old cheese grater tower mac Pros, you could upgrade hard drives easily adding more, you could add a better GPU. you could replace and update many components to keep it reasonably up to date. The new tower was absolutely a Form over function design in which someone should have said "no, you cannot give that to professionals who NEED scalability over time to keep up to date". instead, they patted themselves on the back, called it revolutionary, and then promptly forgot about, further re-inforcing that the current leadership at apple does NOT understand the PC industry.
