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

    From Arstechnica

    "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."

    It's about time daddy needs an upgrade

    if you are an artist then go for the surface studio...otherwise you pay for something you dont need/use

    Not just for artists though. I am a designer and sketch, mark up drawings, model in 3d apps etc. Lots of use cases for something like the Studio, however I am not keen on the idea that my main machine would have a screen with smudges on all the time. It is a fantastic computer though.

    I think I will have to see one in real life.

    Mac Mini really needs to be pushed to a level where it is a monitor-less iMac. The current model is hamstrung big time.

    why? No reason not to launch similar to the MacBooks....... and should have had the annual update in October.

    I see it as right on time rather than a little early.
