  I'm a Mac fan. Heck, I'm the only Mac user remaining in my household of four. You would think people would think negatively about the rest of my family. No. They think negatively of me. Why?   Because I too am holding back.   While the rest of the family went elsewhere to find the features, hardware, "usefulness" that they either wanted or needed I stayed loyal.   I've been waiting for Apple to offer what I want and need. It's been close a couple of times but not enough...
  The people that will say no are the ones who are lucky enough to have their needs and wants met by  other Apple products.But for many of us we do recognize a gap between the mini and the Pro.   "Demand is even less for Apple's desktops, like the Mac mini,"   Perhaps because Apple's desktop line is in serious need of adjustment?
  Just today another municipality I deal with informed me that fire alarm plans must now be delivered not just in hard copy but also on optical disc. Hard copies take up a lot of space. But still, file cabinets for discs is cheaper than servers and the electricity to run them. Not everyone in the US has the benefit of huge tax bases for infrastructure and/or broadband yet.   And yes NFPA code requires hard copies of plans on site where the system is installed.
My daughter bought a 13 inch MBP last week end at the Apple Store. She has a year and a half of college left. For her needs and use she went with the 8GB RAM, 750GB, DVD non retina model.   Some of her textbooks still only offer an optical disk for things like tutorials, etc. No on line downloads. University provides free Parallels and Windows to students. Some of her Engineering software is Windows only.   Her needs will likely change after she graduates but for...

Just replying because of the mention of Behringer.   Recently had to cancel two Behringer orders because their stuff just isn't getting over to the US. My distributor mentioned that he has canceled lots of Behringer orders because of supply issues.   Installing sound equipment in two new schools and they have to be done like yesterday. I guess the boat was an extra slow one from China.
How about just real knobs, sliders and switches?   What is great about them is that they can be different shapes, sizes, and textures. You can learn which is which by feel.   With any flat screen, even with tactile controls it is still one dimensional. You can actually hold it.   Even Ford is going back to offering some knobs and buttons because drivers (you know, the people behind the wheel) found that touch screen everything just doesn't work so well.
Maybe a lot of people don't like California?
  Tubular?   That's such an 80s thing.
And you can spruce up your desk by sticking a silk flower arrangement inside your Mac Pro.   You know, you just know, that someone, somewhere is going to do something like this.
