Apple and some of the biggest corporations in the would would disagree with that assessment.

I'm not trying to trivialize anyone's opinion but Apple's key customers are no longer the armchair prosumers of the late 90s. It's insurance companies, hospitals, manufacturing facilities, etc...

Where precisely is the overlap between the target audiences for the Mac Pro (or MacBook Pros, for that matter) and for iPads/Chromebooks? This makes zero sense.

The majority of sales, office, marketing folks do not need a Mac Pro or MacBook Pro. However they frequently need somewhat more flexibility than an iPad or Chromebook provides.

Would it surprise you to learn that my wife works for a Fortune 100 company and does the majority of her work on a company provided iPad? Would it surprise you to learn that I manage the Apple infrastructure for an organization that has thousands of Apple devices. Devices that facilitate some of our most mission critical workflows (literally life and death)? There's a LOT to complain about with apple (and I do frequently) but these concerns about gamers and nvidia cards and ARM devices are so off apple's (and most organizations) radar they are in another galaxy.

Who the hell are they caring about?


Organizations that want to get work done. There is a huge disconnect with the folks in this forum and the professional world.
