At the same time, here I am, leading with the Mac Pro, just like
those headline writers, and I’m not incentivized by hardware
driving clicks: it was fun seeing what Apple came up with in its
attempt to build the most powerful Mac ever, in the same way it is
fun to read about supercars. More importantly, I thought that
sense of “going for it” that characterized the Mac Pro permeated
the entire keynote: Apple seemed more sure of itself and,
consequentially, more audacious than it has in several years.
My high level takeaway is that this is the first year where Apple seemed to succeed in pushing all of its platforms forward, in step with each other.
