It seems Apple just doesn't want to be in the computer business. I need a powerful pro level desktop computer and Apple it seems just doesn't want my money. I'm willing to pay a high premium on hardware simply because I love MacOS. I didn't realize how much I hate Windows until I started using a Mac. Well I can't wait anymore. When Apple says they'll have a next generation Mac pro for "2019" this really means "Late 2019" which actually means "A late 2019 announcement with actual availability in-store early 2020" ... (and this is the best case assuming no further issues causing delays) I simply cannot wait this long. There is no excuse I'm willing to listen to for why it can take this length of time to redesign a computer case when you are manufacturing little of the core hardware yourself. I understand the mistakes they learned from in building the trashcan like the thermal issues it created, but it can't remotely justify 5+ years. I don't want to build a hackintosh, I just don't have the time to invest. Same with Linux, I tried once but it's too much of a time sucker to get everything working the way you want. The iMac Pro is out of the question, I'm not buying a computer and monitor as one unit. So it seems I have to get a Windows computer. Just the thought of having to go into the registry to make system changes is making me sick. But I'm going to learn to love it. The hip kid in the iPad commercial clearly told us Apple's future plans: "What's a computer?"
