[Erik Lindahl] " wonder how Apple's focus on their pro desktop market is. "
Steve Jobs clarified that very nicely last week in the D8 interview - he said "it's uncomfortable":

...the day is coming when only one out of every few people will need a traditional computer.
When we were an agrarian nation, all cars were trucks because that's what you needed on the farms. Cars became more popular as cities rose, and things like power steering and automatic transmission became popular.

PCs are going to be like trucks, they are still going to be around. However, only one out of x people will need them. ...advances in chips and software will allow tablet devices like the iPad to do tasks that today are really only suited for a traditional computer, things like video editing and graphic arts work.

The move will make many PC veterans uneasy, because the PC has taken us a long ways.
We like to talk about the post-PC era, but when it really starts to happen, it's uncomfortable...

So, no comfort there :-(
