    With Apple moving towards more integration and pointlessly thinner products at the expense of upgradeability or serviceability.

    Other companies like HP is innovating in areas where it actually matters.

    Now, I'm not sure how much expandability this will be but at the very least, I expect the SSD, and RAM to be upgradeable after market and not soldered in

    But HP do have other professional hardwares that's more upgradeable

    I guess there's no incentive for Apple right now to create powerful Macs as, if someone needs to develop on Mac (for iOS) and Windows, they'll have to buy a Mac. And for most people, they rather have 1 computer then 2, so logically they'll have to get a Mac.

    Unless you're a gamer, CAD professionals, game developer then you don't need to get a Mac

    For all intent and purposes, Apple is in a position where it has no competition from other vendors mainly cause people who prefers to use OSX or develop for iOS has to buy a Mac, they (Apple) already have products for those who want ultraportable and accepts lower power as a compromise, so why not build a product that'll fill up the other side of the spectrum (and this will broaden their 3rd party developer offerings as things like VR/AR software doesn't get developed on the Mac cause of its current hardware specs) and how only recently is there real 3D CAD solutions for the Mac partly cause of Mac users increased from the Intel transition, but if their models gets very complicated, they'll have to still buy a PC. But the point is, Apple could gain MORE by offering a product that caters to these users.

    Your signature is bit ironic.

    To me it reads like the pedestal under two vast and trunkless legs of stone standing in an ancient desert.

    Apple: Been there, done that. Small compact computers they have done. The product you are talking about is niche of the niche. Primary use is designed around certain certified CAD software. I'm sure it has other uses obviously.

    Well they do design beautiful machines but my issue right now is their over obsession on thinness, the new MBPs, iMacs, iPhones.

    With the dwindling overall PC market, wouldn't it be good for Apple to support a broader range of professionals? It's more like they don't care that many creative pros have left Mac, just look at videos showcasing studios where it used to be all Mac and now you see PCs. They're many people who love to use MacOS but sadly Apple doesn't offer the hardware specs that these people needs

    And I guess Apple couldn't be bothered as they have their iOS platform and devices supporting them right now
