You know Apple got into this in the 1980's after Jobs was fired. They stopped innovating and stayed expensive and got slower and less powerful at the same time as the PC began to really take off and accelerate and improve.
It looks like Apple died again with Jobs passing.
However, I do recall a similar problem 10 years ago with the PowerPC CPU's. I had Mac heads swear to me WON"T OWN XP NADA! Then I should what a Pentium IV with Adobe Premiere can do and how slow their G4's were. They sighed and built their own XP rigs with top end monitors and gave up on Apple.
This was a problem before Jobs really take over as their whole freaking stack was tied to PowerPC and x86 was very risky. It took years and Jobs wanted iPOD sales to soar before taking the jump.
Go build a new Windows 10 box with AMD Ryzen and you can get thunderbolt aka USB type-C, m.2 raid 0 SSD, 64 gigs of ram, a far superior GPU with CUDA acceleration, and a high end 4K monitor for a fraction of the cost of Apple. Adobe might even sell you an upgrade license. Yes it is Windows bawawa cry me a river though your apps run on that platform.
