... no... as melgross said... not really   Apple intentionally limits the product range and slows down the product cycle for a number of reasons (read the Steve Jobs book... its states it plainly0   - to coincide with seasonal consumer trends - they only change something when they have something better to replace it - the Mac Pro is great design - what competing product would you suggest is anywhere close to the Mac Pro.... hmm, I thought so.... - to simply tell the story...
Wow, I do the same thing with my TV. Most content is utter crap anyway. I agree with your second point too.
