Will we see a new display sometime soon? Or did they get out of the dedicated display game just like they did with the airport routers?

Seems like they have gotten out of making displays. Not much innovation needs to be made there, just updated design and higher resolution screens. They already have the screens from the iMacs.

I'm holding out hope for an iMac/apple display with Apple support. I love my iPad Pro + Apple Pencil but dream of a bigger/ broader display like a workspace with that type of accuracy/feedback.

You talking about touch support? Would not hold your breath on that, Apple has not been very willing to move into touch screens beyond iPads and iPhones.

Oh believe me. It's a hail mary of a hope/wish but it is something I desire.

Seems like touch screens for desktop serve a small niche market. Are you an illustrator?

The Microsoft Studio looks like a fantastic machine or this type of work. Microsoft has been doing some good things hardware wise lately. Seems they are more interested in pushing the envelope then Apple who is playing it safe and dumb.

Agreed. Not seeing the magic with Apple lately. Every press conference is pretty by the books, predictable or just uninspired.

Uninspired is the right word. I have a feeling they are going to continue down the same road as they did with the trash can Mac Pro. Maybe make it a bit easier for hard drive swapping but nothing else. They will tout how fast the thunderbolt ports are and how easy that will make just plugging in an external GPU. Forget that external GPU's cost way more then a regular internal GPU, this will somehow be better because you just plug it in.

Yikes the new Mac Pro and their new screen are probably the ugliest thing Apple has ever come out with since the dawn of the iMac.

They make it sound good and all, but they really dropped the ball in the looks department. That being said what really matters is what is under the hood and looks like they have done some good things though at an incredibly high price point. I think the base hard drive size for a $6000 Mac Pro was only 256 gigs. I could be wrong going by memory from the video.

The fake mockup that CubaMark put in the original post looked way better for both the screen and the Mac Pro itself. This new cheese grater design I hope stays with these 2 and does not trickle down to everything else they are doing.
