Yeah and 2 years down the line I will need to drop another $5000 to be able to get the iMac to match anything current, whereas with my Lenovo, or my custom build, I will spend a few hundred dollars to update it to the latest, and be well ahead of what the iMac does.
Also, this device is coming in December! That's a lifetime in PCs. Let's compare prices when it arrives.
Finally, let's actually wait for iMac Pro benchmarks, because I suspect the inevitable throttling is not gonna make all those CPUs look so good.
IOW, I will be impressed if Apple releases similar pricing on the Mac Pro.

Cases have nothing to attach to and the camera/sensors up top looked crammed in a way that is not esthetically pleasing. In all.. I'd say this is pretty "meh".

Say, I've got a hammer to return to the hardware store because it doesn't serve any function in my home. Obviously it's a faulty hammer.

The Vivo X5 Max is 4.75mm thick and still has a 3.5mm headphone jack. The 6S is 7.1mm thick. The internal space argument is as much hogwash as the need for nano sims vs micro sims, something which was quite apparent when I opened my daughters 5 to install a new battery.
No, this is about money. 50 million Lightning to 3.5mm adapters at $30 each with an 80% markup - ka-ching! 50 million beats headphones with lossy bluetooth and an 80% markup - ka-Ching. license fees from 200 million third party lightning chip sporting headphones and earbuds - ka-ching.
Meanwhile the Samsung S7 will reportedly include the best portable device DAC ever made with 129dB dynamic range and -120dB (0.0001%) harmonic distortion.
Not having to pay for a decent DAC in 80 million phones - ka-ching!
