[Chris Harlan] "
It blows my mind how much weight you guys put on a single cryptic email, and are able to disregard all other evidence to the contrary. It is pseudo-messianic, the faith some of you have."

It also ignores the fact that Apple could simply decide to not introduce something if the business climate has changed and no longer warrants it. Remember, they are "Apple" and no longer "Apple Computer". Might the situation of pulling Mac Pros from the EU market be a bit of a test, albeit unintended? Namely it provides a gauge of pent up demand.

Unfortunately for pro users there are three "sort-of" reliable, mainstream vendors: Apple, Dell and HP. Discounting a slew of no-name PCs, Hackintoshes and maybe Lenovo, this doesn't bode well for companies that rely on that class of machine in the future. I suspect the iMac design model (as well as the HP Z1) might be something developers will increasingly embrace simply out of self-preservation.
