    Considering they didn't even address it... It's dead. EOL.

    Shocking treatment of Pro users by Apple.

    Hmmm...Hackintosh or HPz840o_O

    I think the "Oh hey look... here's a new Final Cut Pro version that we're not going to say anything about except show you how it works with the emoji bar." is pretty telling too.

    Can't Microsoft just fix their stupid OS so I can switch already? Tired of this. I don't care about accessing my emojis. If I want emoji I type either : ) or ( done how much do people need to emote?

    I'm so disappointed, can't believe that Apple has come to this.

    Such a disappointing keynote.

    We need to scrub through hundreds of emojis. This is necessary. I like how they throw in the word 'Pros' and then showcase an LG Monitor and an external drive holder.

    What a sink bomb! I am very disappointed in no updated MacPro. But even the new macbook pro looks like a stinker. When are they going to give that thing some real ram capacity?

    Such a disappointing event. Even for Macbook Pro users. "Hey here's an extra touchpad for when you don't want to use a mouse. It will be poorly supported and will lag too much to want to use for putting emojis in your family newsletter after the next 2 security updates."

    I wish they would give us the courtesy of at least announcing it's discontinued so we can all know 100% that we should move on

    I love the idea of a Mac Pro, but I can see the MacBook Pro plus all some externals monitors being pretty awesome for Final Cut Pro X. Work on the go.. and work at an office. Is that the idea?

    What issues are preventing you from moving to a Microsoft OS?

    Maybe if you're not doing any serious editing that requires RAM or compute power.

    Windows 10 is actually ok. I finally switched last week after being with Mac for 15 years. I managed to wrangle Windows 10 into a usable state. It's not perfect, but then neither is macOS. Some of the usability really grates, but overall I'm glad I switched. I now have the modular desktop that I want. It's quiet, stable, and I can change parts as I see fit. I'm not missing any Mac-specific applications so far.

    Yep. It looks like Apple has decided that a portable computer is the answer to everything (at least until they tell us it's an iPad Pro):(

    My 6 core 2010 Mac Pro with dual 7950 AMD cards and 16 gigs ram cuts 4K footage quite well. If the MacBook Pros offer fast enough performance comparable to that.. it might be fine in my opinion, but I'm not a super power user.

    Still, how hard is it for Apple just to at least just "update" the current cylinder? It's crazy!

    I have less need for my laptops now than before thanks to Dropbox/iCloud/OneDrive etc... One desktop at home and one at work, all folders synced. Some years ago I used to carry laptops between work and home, not anymore. I am not sure Apple is playing their cards right this time. If I could wish for something it would be a mac server, that all my apple gadgets could connect to... keyboards+screens, apple TV, iPads, etc...

    I just checked the apple site for the new macbook pro. You still only get a maximum 16gigs of ram. 32gigs needs to be the bare minimum these days for more pro level work. This event was a big fail for me across the board. Those macbook pros stink! I'll ride out my Mac Pro and then its an HP Z for me!!

    Wow, only 16 GB of RAM? 32 is my bare minimum now as well.
