Rumors on the internet, that surfaced in October 2011, point to a possible discontinuance of the Mac Pro. Apple Insider reports that Apple is considering removal of the Mac Pro line because it is no longer a profitable product. There seems to be a continually decreasing need for desktop and tower computers overall. Sales to consumers and businesses for these workstations, such as the Mac Pro, comprise an increasingly small portion of overall sales. On the other hand, portable devices such as MacBooks and the iPad make up most of Apple’s market. Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer stated in the October 2011 Quarterly Earnings Conference Call that notebooks comprise 74 percent of Apple’s total computer sales.
Apple has not confirmed the rumors regarding discontinuance of the Mac Pro line, but they are adding technology to their other products. Due to the increasing need for smaller and portable devices, Apple has added high-speed Thunderbolt technology (available in the Mac Pro) to all Mac notebooks. This change will allow consumers to complete projects that require usage of the Mac Pro with other Mac products. Unlike the Mac Pro, the iMac and Mac Mini can’t accommodate the fastest processors and graphics. According to Apple’s website, however, “no project is too massive,” for a MacBook Pro or iMac while using Thunderbolt.
True or not, these rumors are worrying Mac Pro consumers like Postage, Inc. Some are unsure of the performance promises that Apple ensures about Thunderbolt technology. Apple states on its website that video editors will be able to handle all post-production tasks on a MacBook Pro or iMac. Will it truly offer the same performace? Some consumers might also consider paying more money to purchase a Mac Pro to ensure high-performance and graphics capabilities. Jay Asher of Film Music Magazine, however, says, “Thunderbolt is the answer.” He tells consumers to “get a grip” while defending the technology as the first interface to offer everything that PCI Express has delivered.
Overwhelmingly, the space-saving and portable convenience of these products has trumped the desire for tower computers. Apple is a player in consumerism and according to Apple Insider and Mac Rumors, it is a matter of selling what people buy.
Mac Pro consumers have experienced extended shipping periods and product out-of-stock notices, according to Mac Rumors. Either Apple is ceasing production of the Mac Pro to make way for an updated version or discontinuing the product altogether. The rumors will only diffuse if and when Apple releases a new Mac Pro.
