quote: Apple has ignored their core group of high end power users for a couple of years now. History has shown that this strategy can have disastrous results, as the halo effect fades and high end users find alternatives. Apple should release a NEW Mac Pro with the latest tech and a 17" Macbook Pro with ALL the bells and whistles. Power users do not want to hear that most people don't need blur ray or 16gb of ram is more than enough. Audio visual pros need more. Apple is rich enough and I hope smart enough not to abandon these long time customers, who will happily spend many thousands on their computers.
