iRoom is rumored for 2019. So probably, 2021 - 2022, I would assume.

The reality is that Apple is slowly ( or not so slowly ) becoming the evil monster that Microsoft once was, no one is really paying attention,
it is like the old story, put a frog in a pot of clod water and slowing bring it to a boil

you'd think he'd have a grudge or something.

After seeing an iMac at the Apple Store the other day, I could totally see buying that machine (21.5" screen, 1080p display, 3.06 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB hard drive, sweet graphics card) for $1200 as a desktop option and supplementing it with an iPad for mobile use. Combined, they're about the price of a MacBook Pro and do the same tasks, essentially. You sacrifice the portability of a laptop for what seems to be an oversized iPhone, but it could serve as a sweet note-taking device, textbook and regular book holder, and internet browser, and you leave all of the heavy duty stuff for the iMac.

The price premium is still there because they're Mac products, which is maybe what Deep is alluding to. I don't know, since I rarely agree with the guy anyway, but it makes as much sense to get those two products in tandem as anything else, for me at least. I'm into audio/video editing, and the prospect of using the Final Cut suite on a more powerful computer is enticing. Not that I'm looking for an upgrade over my MB Pro right now, which I love, but down the line, that could be a solid combo.

Very good chance the iPad will have some success. Many will use it as LMP described. Apple controls all apps. They collect 30% of all monies paid for apps. They also have language in their agreements with all the app developers that states Apple can cancel an app agreement anytime for any reason.

Young people seem to heavily favor Apple products.
Apple is the biggest player in the music business now. More music is sold through iTunes than any other source.

In 5 to 10 years Apple will be the dominate provider for music and good chance the app store will have a huge share of the software market.

Do we want one company setting the price of music, books, textbooks, and controlling the software market with the app store?

can we please keep the thread on topic? it's not about how much of a monopoly you think apple has on things. if you want to talk about how much apple sucks, you may do so in...the thread you created.
