It is fairly easy to believe that Apple might choose to kill Macs as a business decision. I wish Apple would consider a marketing push to get more PC to Mac switchers. It would also be nice to see more Macs ads.
It's hard to imagine life without a Mac.
Apple does not need to encourage switchers anymore. Look around an airport; in the waiting halls or airline lounges, I see at least 50% Macs. Go to a university campus. You'll find over 75% Macs. The new Swift Playgrounds, intended to teach kids (or anyone) Swift is an amazing way to make Swift the dominant language for the next generation.
Mac sales are down for Apple because PC sales are down for everyone. I don't know what % are holding off for updates but it's probably significant. Apple sensibly doesn't update on every CPU/GPU change because the improvements are marginal and the constant redesign would hurt margins and create obsolete inventory. I'm certain that updates are coming but will not ship until the fall because they tend to always ship with the latest OS.
