"Ultimately, I think, Apple should be concerned about how this impacts sales of their computers. While 50 - 100 seats of FCPX may mean little to Apple. 50 - 100 sales of Mac (MacPros?) vs Windows has to begin to weigh."

Their MacPros? Not sure about that, haven't the hints been that the MacPro line is 'no longer particularly profitable' and there's rumors that it's on the chopping block?

From another standpoint, okay Apple's behind HP & Dell in PC sales -- and HP wants to spin off their PC business for similar profitability reasons.

Compared to the all the iStuff, both FCPX and even Mac computers are dwarfed. Apple's efforts are more focused on trying to not let the Android stuff become Windows round 2... open versus closed. The future of Apple is greatly dependent on this. Compared to that battle, I'm not sure anything else "really" matters for them right now.

When you do some digging, hasn't it been Apple's aim for decades, all through all of these computers and laptops when the technology wasn't there yet, to ultimately put everything into a tablet size? I personally think there's a bigger goal for FCPX, and maybe it's not on personal computers.
