It's not out yet. Supposedly shipping Q3 2013. Huh? This is comparing a single 2.7ghz 12 core xeon cpu to the 2010 mac pro with dual 3.07ghz 6 core xeon cpus, and it still beat it by 10%. Not to mention, ~1/8th the size?
You really have access to OEM (ie Apple battery) for $50? Or is it a chinese knock-off passed off as a OEM battery that could have consequences later on (like expanding from heat, and blowing up like other aftermarket batteries have in the past)?

Come on, isn't that the new form of "peacocking" Peacocking Peacocking is the action or actions exhibited in the beginning stages of courting.
