Macs no longer to be Pro


The latest rumour from the internets is that Apple are considering canning the Mac Pro product line, because people are not buying them.
Well when they are such a premium product I am not that surprised, however there are many of Apple’s core industries rely on pci-express – Audio, video to name two and for whom an external Thunderbolt card cage’ four lanes is not going to cut it.
Should we be surprised if this happens. No, not really. Look at the XServe, MacOSX server and FinalCutX if you want evidence of Apple’ abandonment of the high-end.
So take a good look at HP’s Z800 because if you are doing anything that needs a little more grunt than an iMac can provide, it will soon be your new best friend.
