    Hoping to see the entire Mac desktop line updated in the March event including Mac Pro along with the iPad Pros.

    "But when you dig down to find the root cause of most people's angst, it’s less about the new MacBook Pros individually and more about the way Apple has been treating the Mac lineup in general for the last two or three years. Even if you consider the MacBook and MacBook Pros to be solid computers—and they are, in most respects for most users—these refreshes by themselves don’t really right the Good Ship Macintosh. The Mac Mini is two years old, the Mac Pro is three years old, and the iMac just missed out on a yearly refresh for the first time since the 2012 models came out. The company is serving its entry-level Mac customers by selling them 2015’s laptops virtually unchanged for the same price as it sold them for last year. And Apple being Apple, we never hear about future products before they’re ready, which does nothing to ease the minds of longtime Mac customers who are uncertain about the platform’s future in a time where iOS is clearly (and rightfully, based on Apple's earnings) the top priority.

    If Apple had given some love to the desktop at the event last week, the reaction to the MacBook Pros probably wouldn’t have been so harsh. What many of these users want is more, more processor, more graphics, more memory, and historically the best way to get more has been to get it from a desktop. A desktop-centric presentation next spring, after the appropriate Kaby Lake processors have been released, would reassure worried power users and get rid of a lot of the red in the MacRumors Buyer’s Guide."
