I do think there's an inherent benefit for Apple in continuing to develop software like Aperture, Logic, and FCPX. Apple's pro-apps have long been testbeds for bringing consumer-facing versions of those features to the iLife suite- which is given away free on all new Macs- a selling feature they've pushed since the resurgence of the Mac platform in the early 2000's. And now on iOS as well.

I'm not sure what anyone is smoking who thinks high end Macs are going away. As long as Apple wants people developing for their platform... Apple will keep the Mac alive and vibrant. A venn diagram of people who think FCPX is abandoning Pros, and those that think a "MacPro" replacement aren't coming probably has a huge overlap. And honestly, if someone has those concerns, then they should absolutely move on to another platform. 'Cause while Apple is giving us peaks into FCPXs 2012 roadmap, they'll NEVER provide guidance on their hardware plans. And I'd be surprised if Apple even kept up the "sneak peaks" long term.

Right now they're just affirming the upcoming reintegration of previous functionality. But once all the big holes are filled and they're stretching out into whatever new territory they have planned, I'd imagine our window will close.
