    Ok let me jump in, because i'm laughing really hard and ask some questions...

    1. Do you think that Apple makes only good machines? Are you that a big Apple Fan boy?
    2. Do you think that having expensive Apple toys you can compose/mix/master and or play better an instrument?
    3. Do you think that having more analog gear and less powerful machine makes you less pro?
    4. Why do i have to spend double the money when i can spend less with maybe better specs?

    I will not say that Apple is crap, but their strategy for selling products is terrible. I have Mac and Windows and i can work pretty much the same good on both machines. Some things are better on Mac and some on Windows. Like the MacOS is unbeatable but the service is really trash.
    Pro is not having the expensive and fancy thing (only gamers maybe) but only what is stable.
    And why is this an investment if i can make music with cheaper and better componets? Anyway after 3-5 years its gonna be old....and if i don't produce good music then the problem is for sure not the Machine i'm working on.

    Same like cars. Ferraris and Lambos are expensive BUT are they really that better then Mercedes Audi and BMW's. Not only speed matters.
    Don't be a sheep for a company.
    Change to what is better at any time if you have to upgrade/update.

    No. Pro means it's your main job & income.

    No; you know nothing of what he is saying. He's illustrating that any car will get you from A to B, regardless.

    Apple makes decent disposable, not upgradeable, neither easy fixable machines for way too much money.

    Yes. I can actually see what I'm doing because Windows fonts and font rendering just sucks and I get a headache from looking too long at them. And don't even get me started on the design - or should I say the gazillion of different designs for pretty much every app, every window and every button, and all the hours I spent on fixing broken things in Windows. I don't get work done on this crap. That's like composing with a $5 guitar from Wallmart 20 feet under water. Can it be done? Certainly yes. Do I want this? Certainly not. Can I get more shit done with the right tools? Certainly yes. Does it make me become better at what I'm doing when I actually finish business instead of wasting my time on fixing shit? Certainly YES.

    Yes. Doesn't make sense to invest all your money in analog gear if you lack a machine to do the heavy lifting. And if you are really a pro, it's all about getting shit done, not about having the most fancy rare analog gear to stare at.

    No idea. Why would you?

    Apple hardware IS crap. Just like Windows IS crap. The worst machine you can ever work with is Apple hardware running Windows. The best machine is carefully selected hardware running Hackintosh. Though, I have to admit, the Mac Pro LOOKS like it might be good hardware. It remains to be seen what it can really do.

    Actually, I once asked a good friend of mine, who always spends a ton of money on the newest BMW 7 series, why he doesn't just get a VW for a fraction of the price, both will take you home from work just the same. He said, you know, I have to drive an hour to work and an hour back home. That's two hours of my lifetime I lose every day. But with my BMW, the second I open the car and sit down, I'm home.

    Unfortunately this fancy cheese grater is only compatible for apples. I guess if someone wants to make a super expensive apple pie, then this is a must.

    It's being subtly implied throughout this thread that a pro is not going to complain about the various issues being mentioned regarding Apple's business strategies. that's why you are seeing the term pro as mentioned by myself and others. Ive always been hardcore Mac since the 90's even when the software selection we had was comical compared to PC. When Mac made some changes that forced many 3rd party repair shops and services to go out of business I saw things to turning back to an ultra limiting formula from the past is all. Carry on

    I hear you, but I still don't understand seeing the term pro misused. Even the Mac woman saying "as pro as the display itself" doesn't make sense.
    Same here. And we had Logic Platinum. What more did we need?!
    Oh right. Well that's totally hypothetical, obviously. And rather ridiculous to opine, due to it being just a hypothesis. But considering the misuse of the word pro throughout the thread, it becomes even more of a moot point!

    So, you have said that because people are implying that a pro (someone who uses a Mac for their daily work and income) won't complain about Apple's marketing strategy, is the reason why you and others are misusing the word pro in this way? That's what your first sentence says.
    ...That doesn't make any sense to me; sorry I can't understand...

    Or the word "Pro" can just be applied to the end of the top model in a company's product line (to indicate that it is their most exclusive model), which has nothing to do if the end user is a professional or not.
    *runs away from pointless debate, lolling*

    From gizmodo article:
    "Still, I can’t get past the thought that all of this hubbub could have been completely avoided if Apple had just priced its Pro Display XDR at $6,000 instead of $5,000, and then tossed in the Pro Stand for free. At $5,000, Apple’s Pro Display is so expensive, most folks immediately knew it was out of reach, so tacking another $1,000 onto its price tag wasn’t going to make much difference. But listing a monitor stand at $1,000 was just low enough for people to get worked up."

    Wholeheartedly agreed. There are either some VERY dumb people working for Apple or they did that on purpose, ie for the headlines and discussions or possibly to hammer home: "this is for rich people".

    2019 and still debating about Mac and PC ? c'mon guys .... a real PRO can do so many things with anything it is the Brainware not the Hardware .. there has to be an alternate for everything in this world, it is like arguing over McD or KFC, Honda or Toyota etc. Trust me guys, buy anything you "NEED" instead of anything you "Want" and remember always buy things you "can afford" period !
    yo don't need buy an expensive MAC if you only earn few bucks for the job .. think about it ?
    COST < INCOME .. this is correct not the other way

    as usual it is impossible to discuss the new apple releases: it always ends with the usual, unsurprising fundamentalist who blows himself up shouting "Apple Akbar!".
    @black bounty : computers are not a faith, they are household appliances, don't let marketing brainwash you
