Who cares what Apple's about to announce? It owes us a macOS x86 virtual appliance for non-Mac computers

I use a Roland Cube 30 myself, but if I was filling arenas I'd probably want a Marshall JMP2203 for crunch and a vintage blackface Twin Reverb for clean given the option.

The computers though are largely dictated by the software and hardware required IME. For example, although they use Macs and Cubase now, for years The Sisters of Mercy used old 486 PCs running DOS for their sequencers and apparently only switched because they couldn't get MIDI interfaces that were compatible anymore.
