No matter what, no company can ever be considered perfect. Even Steve Jobs admitted this at the Antennagate Keynote for the iPhone 4. It's hard to deny Apple's short comings, but it's nice to finally hear some official word back from the company regarding them. Apple has long neglected catering to their "Pro" demographic, an important portion of the market to hold. While Apple has been traveling toward a post-PC world, they've turned away from their desktop user base as well. The same computer that Apple hyped up with parts made in the USA and its own movie trailer, would be the same computer to go over 1,200 days without a single refresh. It's also their most expensive computer. In the end, Apple said the new Mac Pro will be coming next year, with better upgradability. There will also be Apple-branded displays. While the computer is coming later than most would prefer, it's a big step that Apple was so transparent with today's news.
"If we've had a pause in upgrades and updates, we're sorry for that — what happened with the Mac Pro — and we're going to come out with something great to replace it."
