;) This guy gets it completely. Under the old model, we weren't sure Apple even cared about iWorks.  Now we realise what they were doing all along.  Devising a master plan to take out M$ big time.  iWorks is now an essential trojan horse into business along with iPhone and iPad.  PC users can even use it, LOL. iWorks is cream compared to the kludge that is M$'s ribbon nightmare that I can't even figure out how to use the basic features let along the 'power' (HA!) features....
Apple are in a great pincer movement on OS X/iOS along with iWorks striking at the heart of M$'s business empire.   Lemon Bon Bon.
"I thought MS didn't see iWork as a threat?" Heh. :P "In the light of the iWork disaster" In no way was it a disaster. A free, ground up re-write across Mac, iOS and Web/PC platforms? No features have been removed. They will be added and weren't ready for the launch. Meanwhile, the older, regarded iWorks can still be used with features included. The new iWorks gives Apple a great fulcrum against M$. There's blood in the water and Apple senses it. Free OS, free...
 Is that your rig with x2 Tesla cards? Lemon Bon Bon.
Still, I think the 'entry' Mac Pro maybe less of a rip off when they upgrade it and include a 6 core and a 512 gig SSD instead.   The 4 core entry for £2500 is a bit rich.  It's a decent spec apart from having to pay £2500 for a beeping quad core.  I wonder how much their mark up is. :P   The dual GPUS and the next gen SSD are the real draws.  And the design is killer.   Lemon Bon Bon.

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/syscon_int.php?prodid=FS-348-OE     What the Mini could have been.  A nice mid range computer.  Some nice specs can go into this.  Vanilla box.  Chocolate Orange.  Or Strawberry.   Lemon Bon Bon.
13 inch iPad.  Why just a couple of inches to 12?  Make a 13 incher.  More compelling size leap.   8, 10 and 13 inches.  For iPad.   4 and 5 and 6 inches for iPhone.   3 sizes of each covers all bases.   Would like them to add some pen pressure sensitivity in the iPad 13 inched.  Either way, a 13 inched iPad and Procreate would rock.  A7X too...   Lemon Bon Bon.
I like the iMac.  Some don't.  People want what they want.  vs What Apple will give them.  There's no need to limit their desktop market this way.   Just put in desktop cpus and gpus in the Mac Pro chassis with a different 'consumer' colour.   Or even a '5C' style plastic enclosure to funky up their desktop line.   Either way, they could offer something a bit more flexible than either the current Mini or iMac for 'those' people who want neither.   Instead of...
They could easy give the pro chassis a space grey 'mini' consumer colour and put in iris, mid range gpu and a high end gpu and give 'tower' customers some value.  i.e.  an iMac without a monitor prices.   It would offer a premium over the mini...but give those non iMac fans what they want.   Lemon Bon Bon.
