I wasn't talking about the current processors being any cheaper, more that the options should be cheaper by now. The only thing that Apple did, as far as I can tell, was add the quad core 3.0 GHz dual processor option. The prices on RAM, Hard Drives, Graphics cards, Wireless options, Additional optical drives, etc. appear to be the same as before. Interesting that many people thought there would be the inclusion of Blu-Ray or HD-DVD drives in the 'next' Mac Pro and we...
Now that the 'new' Mac Pro is out, we should discuss this in Current Hardware instead of Future Hardware, especially since people will probably want to start talking about the *next* Mac Pro upgrade right away.
You are correct! New Mac Pros are out. Edit: There's only one new Mac Pro configuration with the quad core 3.0 GHz processor and it's expensive. As much as I'd love to have one of these Macs, just adding an ATi Radeon X1900 XT 512 MB graphics card, a second SuperDrive, Airport+Bluetooth Wireless, and a Wirless Keyboard/Mighty Mouse brings the cost of this Mac Pro up to $4,483.00! I'd also definitely want to put more RAM into a box like this but I definitely wouldn't buy...
Maybe it will be possible to get your wireless carrier to forward your calls to the iPhone?
If I remember correctly, the MacBook Pros have 1 FireWire 400 port and 1 FireWire 800 port.
I think it's much more likely that they are talking about the existing Mac Pros (and other Intel Macs) since they were still selling the Power Mac G5 at last year's NAB. It doesn't mean that there won't be any new hardware at NAB but this email isn't a guarantee by any means.
Interesting point, but I don't think Apple wouldn't hold up the release of hardware for Leopard testing unless the new features in Leopard required some kind of change in the hardware. It doesn't make much sense to change the new hardware to match the OS when there are tons of previously shipped Macs that are going to need to run Mac OS X 10.5 on day one. In other words, you change the OS to match the hardware, not vice versa, unless the special features of the OS require...
Ah, the Lombard. That was one of the first big events of the original AppleInsider, which was only about 6 months old at the time. Of course, this was the last time we did see a PowerBook update at WWDC. That doesn't mean we won't see it this time around though.
I hurt my back a few years ago while moving some 27" CRTs up 3 flights of stairs at my old job. The next day I woke up and could barely move without significant pain. I made an appointment with a chiropractor in town and had to do what SDW described, go to a new patient orientation meeting, watch an anti doctor video, and talk with people who were patients that swore that if I went once a week, I'd lose weight, prevent illness, and overall be a healthy person. I didn't...
We haven't had any crazy rumors around here for a while so I thought I'd throw this out there for discussion. Right now, we are witnessing one of the longest blackouts of new Mac information since Steve Jobs retook the helm at Apple. The last Mac updates were on November 8, 2006 when the MacBook was updated. We're coming up on 5 months since Apple updated any of their Macs at all and we've had no news on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, not even at MWSF. The only information...
