  No kidding...   Lemon Bon Bon.
Mavericks looks to be shaping up to being a 'Snow Leopard' style release?   Lemon Bon Bon.
  Neglect.  Wasn't it Jobs that once said that Apple lost sight of their crown jewels once upon a time?     I hope Mavericks reverses this apparent trend.  GPU support and Open GL has seemed weak to me over the years compared to Windows GPUs and drivers be they GL or Direct X.  Certainly a well rounded on perception of 'lagging' GL development by many, many commentators and critics...   Lemon Bon Bon.
  Open GL.   I'm glad Apple finally seems to be taking the format they support seriously with Mavericks.   4.1?  Full support.  4.2 in play...and 4.3 pending?   Whispers from around the net hint at graphical/system response being much faster.   Hopefully this will mean gpu performance vs PC gpu performance will finally see parity????   Not the 50-100% less (which always struck me as ridiculous...to say that Apple supported the only equivalent standard to Direct X on the...
I can plug in a couple of SSD external drives or a couple of 2 TB platter drives externally to my iMac should I ever need that storage.  I don't see the problem.   The DVD external sits there.  It's not a bundle of wires.  it's just one.  I guess I could plug in a Pegasus box...if I wanted?  Hard drives are getting bigger and faster all the time.  In a few years SSDs...we'll wonder how we ever lived without one...and the speeds will be incredible starting with the...
  It's a paradigm shift.     And, as always, it's pain.  Pain for upgrading.  Pain for those who can't get their head around it.  It's emotional.  It's new.  It's challenging.   It's what Apple's doing.  It makes sense.  It's Apple's way...or the highway.   But computing boxes are getting smaller.  Whether that's iPhone, iPad or iMac or Mac Pro...or laptops.   They're all smaller.  Thinner.  More powerful than ever before.   We don't need honking big boxes anymore....
The 'Rogue' gpu is going to kick some serious ass going forwards.   That's Apple's 'ATV' console entry right there.   Rogue iPhone and ATV3 is a nice 'casual mainstream' gamer console.   Once you get that kind of gpu power into iPads and iPhones...and an ATV with an SDK/App store going down...   What is it?  1 teraflops for the Rogue in some core counts?   That's surely not true?   With that kind of power...the next A8 and A9 processors are going...
Bring it on, Apple. Lemon Bon Bon.
That remains to be seen.  The current iMac more than competitive for the old Hexcore Pro.   Let's see those benches on the quads to the 12 core...   Lemon Bon Bon.
  Mac Ronin, you've done a good job of configuring the 4 models there.  Well done.  Good effort.   I'm intrigued by the entry model of course.  But I wonder if it could have a hex core in it...  Still, for the $2000 price...you get a machine that puts the Pro back in the 'X Mac' class fight.  A machine we've not really seen...since...well, the G3 Blue and White days.   1292.99 (at $2000) would be a cracking entry model.  (By the time you take off the 27 inch monitor off...
