    1. A desktop Apple in the 'pro' workstation category which is actually worthy of being called a 'pro' workstation instead of merely looking like one.
    2. A portable 'pro' rated Apple which is actually built to the levels that the price tag and nomenclature depicts.

    1. Since first quarter 2007.
    2. Since second quarter 2006.

    Who knows. It's not looking good so far.

    Until we've ported away all of our OS X apps.

    What have you been waiting for?

    A Honda VFR800 V-Tech motorbike

    How long have you been waiting for it?

    Since 2005, but there's always been calls on my finances/time to make it impossible or impractical (or both). I nearly bought one last year, but she who must be obeyed said no.

    When do you expect it will come out?

    It's been out since 2002, with a few tweaks here and there since then. A totally new model is rumoured, possibly next year, but I like the current one.

    How long are you prepared to wait?

    I was about to take the plunge, but it looks like I'll be waiting another few months now. Hopefully April/May 2008.
