My mind was entirely dominated by one thought: the computer I was about to write the column on.

Apple hates the Mac Pro, doesn’t it?

Apple’s event on Tuesday was fun. The company offered up a slew of hardware products for consumers to drool over, and it did a fine job of appealing to everyone from mobile customers to computer purchasers.

New iMac and Mac Pro reportedly coming in 2013

Apple may have refreshed its line of MacBook Airs and MacBook pros, as well as introduce the next-gen MacBook Pro with a Retina display, but iMac and Mac Pro updates were noticeably absent. The Mac Pro did get a very sneaky update after the event, but it was a very minor refresh, mainly due to the fact that Intel stopped producing the chips that the models used. David Pogue of the New York Times has heard that updates to both lines are coming.
