I’m not one to post breaking news, but as a Mac Pro user this make me very happy. A lot of new Apple toys were announced on Monday. Many of us hoped there would be an update to the Mac Pro, which hasn’t seen any changes in over 2 years.
What Apple did was akin to leaving a 10 cent tip. They didn’t forget about the Mac Pro, but they did quietly update the Apple store with a new model that lacked a lot of needed features, like Thunderbolt and USB 3.0.
A concerned user emailed Tim Cook and shockingly got a reply.
Thanks for your email. Our Pro customers like you are really important to us. Although we didn’t have a chance to talk about a new Mac Pro at today’s event, don’t worry as we’re working on something really great for later next year. We also updated the current model today.
We’ve been continuing to update Final Cut Pro X with revolutionary pro features like industry leading multi-cam support and we just updated Aperture with incredible new image adjustment features.
We also announced a MacBook Pro with a Retina Display that is a great solution for many pros.
