I think it would be a great thing.

It wouldn't be much cheaper as many people have shown in this forum many times (similarly spec'd HP Towers and MacPros don't have a huge price differential).

But wouldn't Apple have to open the OS to more graphics cards? OpenCL and Cuda? Potentially create and optimize new and specialized firmware? I'm asking because I don't know, but do you think Apple would have any interest in this at all? They play their cards close to the chest, this would allow a peek at their hand.

Does this mean they'd have to support HP laptops too? Wouldn't that go against Apples interests? And wouldn't the people who don't want to throw down on a Z series, but want a laptop be pissed at both HP and apple?

Maybe I'm just shell shocked after the June 21st bomb, but there's been enough dissent, I can't imagine trying to create more.

Not sure if Apple would ever do it, or if they are even remotely interested, but I'm sure a lot of people here would be, me being one of them.

As far as porting avid and adobe to Linux, not sure if that makes sense. If professional editors with desktops are a niche, professional editors on Linux are a microorganized version of that niche. Is it worth it for Avid or Adobe?
