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.

There are PC notebooks with insanely high resolution
displays aswell, but they also cost alot of money.


True, but they are still cheaper than Macs when comparing overall technical specs.

Just check this Lenovo ThinkPad W520 mobile graphics workstation. It has the same price range as Apple's offerings, yet it offers the double the juice in computing power and connectivity.
