Get that. Lemon Bon Bon.
Spoken like a true zealot. They sure haven't forgotten the profits from the Mac line. Or how to screw a 2 year old cpu eg in the iMac like. See Core 2 Duo for details. But the Mac Pro IS a forgotten machine. With an outrageous sticker price for a 'mere' quad core starting at an eye watering £2k for a 'workstation' with 'old tech' when it was introduced consumer GPU with laughable ram and HD. How can the flagship Mac computer not have an update in a year and a...
No sh*t. Lemon Bon Bon.
I do admire alot of the work Apple does on the OS, software side which they virtually give away for free. The iPad is a landmark machine. Price wise. It's way better value than the mac mini!!! And it has a free keyboard and screen...and wayyyy more apps available for it. The iPhone 4 is state of the art (and on order. I'm no.60 on a waiting list...) :/ And I'm excited about where Apple going going generally. But I've never been a big fan of their desktop...
You know. I wonder if the iMac will get the 6 core AMD in a future update? If the iMac had that, any decent gpu...that would be my next machine and I'll trade this one in. Lemon Bon Bon.
Work related. I might have guessed. For a long while you seemed like Melgross with hypertension. It was getting to the point where even Mel' seemed mellow compared to your postings... Your job must be stressful...heh. More vacations. As for the desktops. It's the same old for me. As a UK buyer, I along with Marv', feel hard done to. iMac's screen makes it good value. Great screen. But the C2D is out of date. So are the gpus. Wayyy past their prime. They're ok....
As for the magic... ...a little pixie dust sprinkled on the iMac and 'pro'? or the mythical x-mac? ...or...UK pricing wouldn't go amiss... Lemon Bon Bon.
Finally, a post from Dave that sounds like his old self again. Balanced. Well reasoned and constructive. I haven't lost all hope for a 'trimmed' pro design x-Mac. Using AMD and a decent gpu option. Though the prices for the 'pro' with it's workstation cheap ass 'old when introduced' consumer 9500GT card, ooops, 120...are insane...I look forward to the pro update...with interest. Add in the 27 incher and it's going to be pricey. I 'reckon' £3000 to get the entry model,...
I think you're right. The £1499 is long gone. My only hope is for a smaller tower design that might have a cheaper entry model. But look at the UK prices over the last year or so. Mini. Up from £399 to £645. iMac up from £675 entry to £995 entry. Mac Pro up from £1495 to a mind warping £2k. 'We're not in it for the money.' Jobs' Apple. Sure... At least my iPhone 4 aint going to cost 2k. Lemon Bon Bon.
Heh. I wish I'd have written that. Lemon Bon Bon.
