    oh please

    An overdue refresh to the MacPro will NOT do anything for the company's stock price or visibility. Which is why it wouldn't be surprising to see the MacPro to just disappear after a while.

    Dividend?

    You give a dividend to support the stock price--a reward to shareholders to help sell your stock at a higher price. Is that needed here?

    Turnabout is FairPlay (so to speak) ...

    ... perhaps Apple should throw some investment/bailout money into Microsoft.

    At least be good for a tax write-off.

    Re: right...

    because they're super-worried about their lack of visibility and their weak stock price.

    No, Apple's not worried about that. MacNN seems to think they are, and why they think a MacPro will keep them in the spotlight.

    they can do whatever they want with any line they care to evolve, even as a pet project for cool customers (like 3d folks, scientists, etc).

    Yes they can. Never said they couldn't. I'm just saying that (a) a MacPro will do nothing to affect their visibility, since it has such little visibility to begin with (they sell what, 50,000 or so a quarter?). and (b) considering how Apple seems to eschew 'niche' products, it wouldn't be a shock to see it go away, and the iDefenders telling us how an iMac with thunderbolt can cover the same space.

    i hope the next mac pro is programmed to hunt you across space and time and steal your cheetos before you can stuff them in your face.

    You better hope not. Otherwise it will be even longer before it is released!
