"The Mac Pro is aimed at a narrow market of stupid people professionals such as photographers, videographers, designers and animators."
"It's smaller and cannot be expanded and customized as much as the previous system. Apple has built a machine so unique Yeah, hitting bottom floor at "this thing is stupid beyond expectations" floor that people who want to add to it will end up building out, adding components like hard drives and PCI cards externally."
"To make that expansion impossible possible, the industry must first deny embrace the Thunderbolt input-output standard."
"For example, it's no longer possible to pop in standard video cards. Clueless Mac Pro users will have to either get cards that fit the custom shape of the new computer or plug them into the computer using a Thunderbolt 2 connection."
Overpriced Super expensive computer that has not standard parts? Yeah, good luck getting people to buy that. Now you actually have to buy parts from Apple that are probably 30% actual price and 70% the price of word "Apple" on it.
That thing looks like my T10 speaker viewed from the top. gosh darn golly gee whiz ugly IMO
