According to AI Apple has filed for trademark the name MacPro, though in the description they list every possible use for the name that a computer company could possibly ever sell. If the PowerMac is indeed renamed the MacPro, then one has to wonder why Apple chooses to keep the iMac name, as it is the only computer left with the old "i" moniker, and would seem out of place. <br><br>

It still makes sense to keep the 'i', as long as they're still marketing the machines to the average consumer...<br><br>You can't follow the naming scheme of the laptops - the iMac would just be called a 'Mac', wouldn't it?<br><br>

You know I think the whole "pro" suffix for their pro line is a bit retarded. I'm hoping that when they release the intel powemac the advertisement will say something like "introducing the macintosh.."<br><br>--<br>http://www.jackthevain.com/

Yeah I feel a bit lame that every time I refer to my laptop I have to say "macbook PRO" like I'm compensating for something I'm self conscious of. I just call it "the laptop" now. Anyways I guess I have bigger concerns in life..<br><br>--<br>http://www.jackthevain.com/
What it is that Apple is ditching the "Power" tag because it relates to the IBMs Power PC chips so it makes sense for the intels to drop the Power tags and it would be confusing to some.<br><br>as for the <br>iMacs they never had the Power tag to that line up , so it makes sense to keep the naming scheme <br><br>IMO<br><br>
