I wonder if your experience would be different if you had purchased it through an Apple reseller such as Sweetwater, B&H, etc. who specialize in the pro audio area and also sell Mac Pros.

The Mac Pro model might be something that is doing fine via their resellers who are much better positioned to deal with the professional market than are the brick and mortar retail Apple Stores.

Well, at least it sounds like they do consider it important, so that's cool.
