No they will be pieces of expensive "art" that just happen to have an Intel
part crammed in them somewhere and run Windows when no Mac zealots are
around to see it. Apple still makes most of its cash on hardware sales and
little on software, so I don't see them getting rid of the hardware line any
time soon. Sooner or later we will see some other fruity labeled Mac
knockoffs from Asia just like in the good old Apple 2 days (why buy the
company when you can just rip them off).
Personally only the 68K Macs are collectable to me.
I need to find a spare IIfx before the last ones are ground into plastic
picnic table tops or end up in some hoarders storage shed.
