As I pointed out somewhere else in this thread. To be completely mercenary about it- even if WE didn't matter to Apple as a customer base, the strongest case for a MacPro is in support of iOS and Mac developers running Xcode. Doing code-builds in extremely processor intensive, and when you're testing software, you're building over and over again. It's the same advantage that we have when we can half our AE Renders when you're working on a complicated comp.

And since so many people believe that Apple is ALL ABOUT iOS, it starts to make a lot of sense for Apple to have a machine that serves the developers that serves their biggest profit sector. If Apple can do that, AND serve high-end Audio/Video professionals to boot, that makes lots of sense.

Apple's never going to back off the Mac platform- it's the platform for people who MAKE stuff for iOS. You can't have one without the other. As long as iOS is important to Apple's business, the Mac will be too.
