Apple Marco Arment: "After two years, the Mac Pro was 'updated' today, sort of: now we can choose slightly faster two-year-old CPUs at the top end, and the other two-year-old CPU options are cheaper now. That's about it. No Xeon E5 CPUs, no USB 3, no Thunderbolt. They're even shipping the same two-year-old graphics cards. Same motherboard, slightly different CPU options from 2010. That's it. The message is clear: Apple doesn't give a shit about the Mac Pro." Paint, red, scout, girl.

Desktops?

I am a computer enthusiast, my house runs Windows, Mac, Linux and BSD. I have purchased about 6-8 laptops over the last five years. I have not purchased a desktop. I probably never will again. It's all laptops for content creation, and tablet/phone for consumption. I realize there is a VERY small percentage of people who require monstrous desktops with 64-256GB of ram. I really wouldn't expect any consumer-oriented company to put a whole lot of R&D into the desktops. This is where the niche companies come in.
