I think we can say it's quite official,
Apple is a mass-market company and not Pro company.

Nice! Now, how many people are going to complain about "Tim Cook's Apple" despite the fact that we're still seeing Steve Jobs' Apple?

Don't go jumping off a cliff yet. They didn't update the iMac either. There's always the possibility of them updating it with a separate press release later today. The store still isn't back up yet, so there's still hope.


Yeah and if they don't update, then proceed to jump of cliff!

No refreshed Mac Mini, iMac, or Mac Pro... I'm sure there'll be a silent update by the end of the summer. So just sit tight.

Nice to see the spec updates and BTO options on the MBA now though! HD FaceTime camera and 8GB of RAM :D
