Apple While it's just a rumour, this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who hasn't been living under a rock the past five years, and in all honesty, I'm pretty sure it's actually true. AppleInsider is reporting that Apple is contemplating axing its iconic Mac Pro.

Repro houses, prepress companies, photographers, printing plants and so on doing all kind of graphics and documents.

Mac pro:s are de facto standard for them.
Sure, it would be interesting seeing all of them getting macbook pro:s instead.

They didn't really seem to require machine of such class for over a decade...

(especially if a place was less affluent & not jumping so readily on unnecessary expenses - in my still fairly prosperous one, a short hop across the Baltic from yours, even bondi-blue iMacs often held out in ~printing business way into mid-noughties; and since then, people also largely realised that PCs are usually equally good, or even with better bang-for-buck)
