But it's only Monday. The whole system is breaking down.
They are way overdue though so a day early isn't such a bad thing. Not that it matters starting at $2499 with 3GB RAM.
It's not too bad over a 3 year period as it would be about £2500 for the 8-core, 16 thread model, which is about £800 a year and you'd be able to sell it for £1000 after 3 years so the expense is only £500 a year.
If Apple would let you lease the machine instead, that would be cool. So you just pay £500 a year and get the Mac Pro, then give it back after 3 years to get the new one and keep paying the same rate. No interest. You never actually own the machine so you only pay the amount minus the resale value. Even £700 a year would be ok as long as there's no interest and the Applecare warranty is included.
