  Such a question is nonsense.   Ask that same question for any of the existing Apple computers. prospective buyers, even owners would have different ideas on what it should have and what it should cost. They may find that it fits their needs, they may find that it works just fine, they may even be okay with the cost. But there will still be something that they wish was slightly different.   And that is with a product that already exists. That they already can use, and...
I actually shopped at JCP more after the changes than I did before. I hated the Buy 1 get 2nd half off rip off sales tactic. Forcing me to buy more than I want just to get any kind of discount. After JCP dropped it I noticed that Kohl's started doing it. I now shop less at Kohl's.   Too many brain dead shoppers that think  a sale, any sale is a bargain.
I admit that I have been tempted. But I prefer my OS to be from Apple.
  It's the company that won't build a mid sized mid range Mac. Perhaps Apple should license OSX to one manufacturer that contracts to only offer a mid size mid range desktop computer. It wouldn't really be competing with any of Apple's models.
My daughter is going to buy a Macbook Pro this summer. She is not getting the Retina display because she DOES use an optical drive.
I know that many schools are cramped and crowded. I think a 17 inch model for education would be a better choice. But of course Apple doesn't made one anymore. I see a lot of schools passing on this product.
  I don't want my computer built onto the back of my monitor, no matter how beautiful anyone thinks it is. Put the iMac parts in an easy to open case, that offers a little bit of expansion, room for an optional ODD and let me choose my monitor and I would gladly pay $1500 for it.   I'd bust down one of Apple's $100,000 doors to get it. (Okay, maybe I wouldn't go that far.)
  How many iPhones and iPods has Apple sold to people who still use PCs? How many of those people would love to have a complete Apple experience if Apple would just build the Mac that they need?   Three iPhones in my family. Two iPods in my family. Plus one work provided iPad. Number of Macs that those three people in my family still own and use? Zero! You are talking about an educator that used Macs in the classroom and two children that grew up using Macs in the...
  I deal with several regulatory departments at both the local and federal level of government and with various contractors. They require electronic files to be delivered on CD/DVD. So yes, I do use them, I need to use them and will continue to use them as long as the departments I deal with require them.
And as such a desktop computer does not need to be pencil thin and exclude things that people need and use just so that some designer can brag how thin it is, in a dimension that doesn't really matter.
