If you were unsure of Apple's strategy, early sales numbers may put that to rest. Recent sales for the new MacBook Pro shows strong initial sales, generating more profit in 5 days than the line has in over a year. What does that tell us?
All the rhetoric about how the MacBook Pro doesn't appeal to professionals was.... probably right. And it doesn't matter. Apple has probably done tons of market research, and with Tim Cook at the helm, it's all about numbers.
Are pro users moving to other machines? Possibly. The statistics weren't all rosy for Apple. 40% of Apple MacBook users converted to other brands, namely Dell and Asus. I'm sure Apple found that the professional market isn't that lucrative (for them). With the Mac Pro model sitting at over 1000 days since it was last updated and the new MacBook "Pro" selling well despite opposition from people using it as such, maybe it's time we realize Apple isn't catering to you, the professional, anymore.
