Wow talk about blind. Everything Apple does is golden. What a joke... Apple products are great but that doesn't mean they don't make mistakes. The new version of the Mac Pro is a mistake plain and simple. Yes its a cylinder, but its basically a design iteration of the G4 cube if you can't see that then you really aren't as bright as you think you are. The new Mac Pro doesn't fit the mold of a workstation its too small. If it were the size of a workstation it wouldn't...

I know that's not base, but the fact that you can configure it to those specs is great! OS X is better then Windows that's a given. I'm talking about hardware performance and expandability. For example with the new Mac Pro it looks like you are stuck with AMD/ATI Firepros meaning if you are using any software that requires NVIDIA CUDA (like the majority of pro 3D, video, and compositing software) you are screwed. At least with the current Mac Pro you can add an NVIDIA...

Look at the Mac Pro's competition: HP z820 http://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/workstations/z820.html 24 cores 512 GB RAM 15 TB internal HDD Thunderbolt Dual NVIDIA Quadro K6000 or Dual FirePro cards. Not even a contest hardware wise and its not a spaghetti monster on your desk! Love to get an old Mac Pro case and build one with these specs.

I'm sure they'll buy the current model, but down the road as the new xeon chips and gnu become available it'll make sense to build hackintoshes with bigger more expandable cases. Heck pick up an empty Mac pro case and modify it to build a hackintosh pro tower. It will cost less and offer more.Along with a Mac Pro hackintosh with the latest parts its would also be possible to build 1U rack mount servers using the latest xeons. Definitely easier then mounting a can

The rise of the h4ckintosh Pro is inevitable. Pros don't want a can on their desk.

Well to start a cylinder isn't the most practical shape for a workstation (or rack mounting in the server room). So I'd ditch the cylinder and stick with the current mac pro case. As for the "thermal core" its no different then other heat sinks except that its shared by the CPU and 2 GPU's. I would have gone with the Sandia Cooler which is 30 times more efficient. The Sandia cooler merges the heat sink and fan into one...

Not a fan of the design. It will lead to mess of wires on the desk (think octopus). http://www.deltaflow.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/imac_vs_dell-1.jpg I would have preferred the current Mac Pro design with new parts. At least it would have been replaceable parts (GPU etc...). There would have been more room for RAM and storage with the all new Flash parts, PCI slots etc... That would have been a beast of a machine. But instead Apple released the all new Mac...

I'm hoping this is the next gen Quicktime Streaming Server. I would brand it as AirServer. Then again thats already taken! http://www.airserver.com
