This really belongs elsewhere, but this seems the closest place to post it I have access to...So. With the introduction of the new MBP, the disregard for Pro users, and the discontinuation of lines that don't make volume sales, have Apple started to suffer from the Dixons / PC World, approach? You can no longer upgrade your own RAM, buy it from us at purchase time at our prices...( UK members will remember this approach in PC world well) Okay, I'm prepared to accept that there are perfectly good technical reasons for the way in which these boards have been designed, but it just has a whiff of PC World about it. It also opens a new revenue stream for Apple...We all know how expensive RAM and peripherals are from them, some chose to purchase, others, myself included chose to shop around for better deals elsewhere. This is a good thing. It keeps Apple on Their toes, and gives the consumer more choice. I'm not knocking the new lines, times move on and we all have to move with them, but this just begins to smell a little of the approach you'd get in a UK Dixons / PC World store. The Pro range? Remains to be seen what happens, but the guy at the steering wheel was as we all know a former adopter and employee of these chains. I hope I'm wrong, but is that kind of approach coming to Apple? Look between the lines, the hype and excitement, and you can detect a little of it I think. I hope sincerely that I'm wrong.
