At the moment I'm in the silly (or crazy) position that I need to invest to replace/ upgrade my music studio set up (aging MacPro + Apogee) but I'm left clueless by Apple about their future plans and products. I decided to write them this letter a week ago. As they didn't get back to me (yet) I publish it on this and my own website. As a small company in the field of audiovisual production we have been using Apple equipment for over 20 years. Because of the special needs when it comes to raw processor speed we always relied on the fastest of Apples machines and so since 2003 on Mac Pro. In recent years there has been some confusion about the direction that Apple is taking considering their support for their customers that depend on the high end Mac Pro. This confusion became more apparent by the recent EU decision to prohibit Apple to sell the current Mac Pro models in Europe. With the consequence that at the moment there are no high end Mac Pro models available from Apple in Europe. When it comes to the mass markets of smartphone and tablet sales it is fully understandable that a company is very secretive about their future plans in regard to product development. Even when it comes to software development such an approach is understandable. When it comes to the high end computing market I think Apple could show more transparency considering their future plans on high end computing. Im convinced Apple is dealing in this segment with a very loyal customer base that is all about continuity of their businesses and need to make plans on investments and replacements of equipment. From that perspective I would like to see that Apple could present its customer base more insight to the future developments regarding the Mac Pro.
