I am going to smoke it.
Maybe, maybe not, who knows? Maybe they will wait for Haswell. Maybe they will tell us then ipad is good enough for mpro users in 2013. Maybe they will cancel logic or other pro apps. What happened was damage control. But the damage was already done. The point is there is no guarantee they will or won't. It's a gamble hanging on now, but, clearly, the desktops are at the bottom of the list of priorities either way.
mmm, kool aid - GHAAA!!TWICHINGONTHEGROUND
Guess the golden question at this point is - are they good for their word?
It's really a golden opportunity for a third player to come up with their own OS and hardware. Maybe an Adobe / Linux combo?
Why are two party systems so in-style anyway?
OH come on. Apple has has 4 years to redesign a square box. Ferrari does it in less than a year .
If you all stop drinking Koolaid long enough you will realize you're being PUNKED by Apple.
Seriously - how many "excuses" are you willing to accept? People have been divorced with less excuses.
If Apple thought the Mac Pro was a priority they could do it in a month. Apple is a phone and gadget company. Time to wake up and smell the coffee.
They make more money selling apps and songs in one day that all the MacPro's they have ever produced. I'm talking PROFIT, not sales. Apps and songs is nearly 100% profit.
The there is the kickback from all the phone companies. Seriously would you spend time reaching over a $100.00 bill to pick up a dime?
