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.

For me, the Mac Pro is necessary for IO. No laptop is going to ship with 4 drive bays. Not everyone can role with a laptop.

I definitely agree, but in terms of market, I think those like you that need a desktop for daily use are a shrinking target.
