  We know Apple has tasked Intel with building a custom GPU for them?   We do?   *looks puzzled?  What we talking about?  Custom integrated crappics?  (Though iGPU is less 'crap' than it used to be...)   Lemon Bon Bon.
But I'm obviously keen to see how the Mac Pro plays out...   Lemon Bon Bon.
  It's clearly not going to be more accessible now they're removed the DVD drive.  And they'll eliminate the HD platter next.   Why would you want to get inside?   8 gigs of ram is more than plenty for a base model.  The upper tiers are easy to upgrade ram wise.   External SSDs and the move of the Mac Pro to make storage external also counter the need to access the internals.   Apple sell, basically when all is said and done, AIO kit.   The iMac is just a more powerful...

Wow.   I remember when Apple intro'd the cinema displays to go with the G5 Alu Tower.  Even Steve Jobs gushed 'We used to dream of monitors like this...'   ...and they weren't cheap back then either.  I remember the old 22 inch Cinema display.  Gorgeous...and not cheap.  But they brought the prices down in time.   What they do with the move to 4k displays.  Dunno.   Can they pound Dell and co by breaking their noses in 4k pricing?   ...the dual gpus and vram in the...
  The whole point of two to three tier options on the Mini, Laptops, iMac...iPad...etc...is to give scope and affordability to different budgets.   It is a value equation.  And it's key to the new Pro's success.   eg the crazy maxed out 4k included....dual ATI gpu top endness with 12 core 128 gigs of ram thingie is going to cost you a mortgage...on your soul...   ...for the mortals of artists being paid in coppers...and fish and chips...and living in a small flat in the...
  The Mac Pro was down to prob' about 50k sales.  Why?  Overpriced and under specced.  It's appeal had narrowed as the iMac ate into the 'traditional' price range fo the 'old Mac Pro' which was anything from £1200 to just under £2k as Apple 'moved' on up with the Tower from the G3 to G4 to G5 and early Intel days.   ...but once they started offering NO machine under £2k (AND you have to add a 1k priced Apple badged Monitor...) they seriously started limiting it's...
A lot of designers, artists seem quite happy with the display...   Lemon Bon Bon.
  It's better than the last display which was very decent.  Damn fine display.  Not bad for a display they're giving away for 'free' (*stifles a laugh....Apple 'give' stuff away...bwah..ahahahahahah....)   The only way to get a better display is a retina...for fork out big bucks.  For a prosumer to Pro range machine...this display seems to be enjoyed by the best part of 1 million buyers.  Are the displays in Apple laptops inferior as well?   ;)   Lemon Bon Bon.
Back in the Blue and White G3 days you were still talking way in excess of the top end iMac if you added a monitor as well.  That was when Apple tower machines were sane.   Lemon Bon Bon.
