[Brett Sherman] "I don't think it's assuming too much that this won't be a huge commercial success"

I'm not sure that's true, but it depends on how you define success. Obviously there's a workstation market, otherwise, HP and Dell wouldn't manufacture such machines.

I think the point that's being lost is when the first Mac Pro tower was introduced (and previous Mac towers before it), generally there weren't a lot of sufficiently powerful desktop machines for editing. Everything was a workstation. In the interim, desktops, all-in-ones, and laptops have become powerful enough to meet the needs of nearly every user.

I think Apple miscalculated with the 2013 Mac Pro, believing that the needs for a true workstation had been eliminated, i.e., no need for "trucks." After all, that 2013 MP was a powerful desktop machine, but not a true workstation. With the 2019 MP, they are re-engaging with customers that actually still do need a "truck" and are willing to pay for it.
