Perhaps...like I said I think it is just me...

Sorry, I started out talking about the lame commercial which there is no category for.  Then it turned into a rant about my personal situation.  Do my concerns matter?  No...whoas me whoas me.  :-)  If moderator wants to move the thread, go for it!
Or has Apple PR taken an arrogant tone in the new MBP commercial?   http://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/#macbookpro-tv-ad   "The radical new MacBook Pro with Retina Display.  Innovation in every dimension."   I could be wrong, but this commercial does not fit at all with the style Apple created in the past with respect to innovation.  They didn't have to use the word innovation previously, it was implicit in the product that was being unleashed or the ads...
I think what happened was they were seriously considering killing off the Mac Pro and they dripped the rumor out there to see the reaction last year.  They got caught with their pants down and are now scrambling to come up with something.  It is gonna be too little too late for some folks like me who are pushing the limits of our early 2008 Mac Pros which have zero GPU options over the 2009+ models not to mention that SSD and Ram only take us so far.  Truly...
  If you own an Early 2008 Mac Pro (64 bit intel which supports Lion) you have ZERO video card upgrade options that are SUPPORTED.  Once you are pumped up on Ram and SSD (3G NOT 6G), the last option is Video Card and then you are screwed.
Thank you mstone. This is exactly where I am coming from here. It is all about the studio upgrade cycle.
Will definitely agree with you here on this. It is a shame that we cannot upgrade our early 2008 Mac Pro graphics cards with something that is FULLY SUPPORTED. Also agree with you about Thunderbolt...it will definitely NOT be a replacement for PCIe. Rob at Barefeats ran some great benchmarks of the latest iMacs compared to mid range Mac Pros and found the iMac to be on par if not slightly faster. Emailing with him about this, his conclusion was that building a PC is...
Meant to respond to the other guy but responded to your post by mistake. The point is had that one person not spoken up and called to complain about the smoke, Apple would never have known their actions were inadvertently affecting others.
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few I suppose:http://www2.hickoryrecord.com/news/2...te-ar-1542518/
