      1. Great point. Why divorce the top of the line power users who only want to keep using their Macs. These are the people that have been loyal users and need to be able to upgrade their machines. I am not in that crowd but I would hate to see any of them leave the Mac ecosystem for a windows platform. I say Made with a Mac is still a very relevant and powerful statement.

      I’m all for getting computing power when you need it, but I also believe in making informed purchasing decisions. And in the world of Apple, where secrecy prevents us from making informed decisions most of the time, WWDC is certainly a leading indicator of what to expect in the near term.
