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.

Wrong. Most IT professionals in well developed countries use Macs. Fact. I'm a web dev, we all use macs.

Keep on being a hater, see where that gets you. The hell you're doing on this forum anyway?

A great deal of software engineers also use Macs, myself included. macOS has been the best Unix desktop platform for a great number of things, so naturally, it's going to be a great option (expensive yes) for many Unix use cases.

That said we are at a crossroad where some things need a powerful GPU.

Man, this thread is so depressing but I keep coming back haha.

I'm just crossing my fingers for either Nvidia/Pascal in this years' Desktop/Laptop announcements (seems highly unlikely) OR support for AMD cards in Mac OS such that it isn't a pain in the ass to run the cutting edge AMD cards.

Seems unlikely we'll get either of those. Yay!

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Finger crossing doesn't work in capitalistic societies ;)

first off, I'm not being a hater. just because YOU and YOURS uses macs doesn't mean it outshines the competition in the IT world. Not by a long shot, in fact. I have nothing against apple or it's users. I just think it's a load of shite to say you use mac because it works better. maybe for you it does but that's personal preference and not hard code fact. the initial point was hardware, and in that case apple has been behind for years. and you can say whatever you would like in that fact, but it's just true. We have been paying premium price for over glorified machines that the competition has been putting out 2-3 years ago.
Now if you want to call names and point fingers, we can go that route any day of the week. but get your facts straight first.

There you go. Maybe it's places I frequent as well but I see Macs in development all the time. In fact more often than anything else for just about any kind of app development. Linux is also super common. Just becouse Apple doesn't see these use cases as "Pro" doesn't mean they aren't.

Future, who knows, but as I said before MacOS is the best Unix environment for development of software on the back-end and front-end side. Only recently I've felt it's lacking heavily while getting more into machine learning, GPU-compute development.

My main system was my Mac Pro 5,1 Westmere (12 core 3.46GHz.) Now it's a combo of that plus my Hack/Linux machine.
