It would have been a perfect replacement for the PowerMac G4 Cube, a tiny Mac mid-range tower, which Apple refuses to do. But they clearly didn't understand the pro market. --- Post Merged, Dec 19, 2017 --- I disagree. I think Jobs simply knew that Timmy would suck his cock anytime he wanted and would do any plan he envisioned for the future. I don't even think we really know what Tim Cook wants, except for his obsession with Animojis, shiny things and unicorns. Jobs was defiant until death, and was absolutely convinced his mojo would save his life instead of REAL scientific medical treatment. I really think he believed that Tim Cook would be simply a temporary steward that would do anything he'd planned. Which is pretty much what Tim Cook did right? PS: I think these Mac Pros will sell cheap on eBay after Apple stops support. Real Pro users don't want them and the general public still doesn't even know that they exist!
