I feel most hacky users will either switch to ubuntu or windows if and when our current systems no longer function with macOS. I highly doubt all of a sudden we'll decide to fork out some stupid amount of money for the latest glorified iPad with a keyboard that apple releases under the MacBook Pro banner. It's Apple's loss at the end of the day, all the creatives are fleeing the sinking ship, I remember seeing them sign up in the first place, now I'm seeing the same with the surface studio pro.
We'll see what the next event brings, but I'm sick of them being boring and safe.
I think it's safe to say that most creatives have no clue what runs under the hood.
Apple hasn't been about "What's under the hood" for a good while now, yet they still seem to be quite popular.
For the IT professionals on the other hand, it's a whole different story. But most IT professionals don't care about Apple to begin with. I think a good majority of Apple users use Apple because they are either familiar with it's OS (it's what they have been using for years) or because they just want a shiny system with status. That's the truth. If we were here debating hardware and if hardware was the underlining reason for people jumping apple's gloriously thin and shiny ship, this would have been a discussion put to rest years ago. the "I use a Mac for the Adobe apps, i.e., PhotoShop, etc.," is really just a bunch of horse dung at best since it runs better on my Windows rig than it does on any apple rig to date. Give me one example of something you do on a Mac that couldn't be done on Windows. I'll wait. it comes down to personal preference and status. Although status has been hard to justify lately.
