Apple on pace to sell record 5.3M Macs in holiday quarter - Page 2

post #41 of 42
If one wants a BMW compact (internationally sized) sedan, then ones out of luck: the 1-Series only comes as hatchback.
For a sedan this size one could go for a Mazda3, a Ford Focus, or a Volkswagen Jetta if one still wants to go Teutonic (well, the Focus is mostly German-designed and engineered but never mind).

The same thing goes for the headless Mac or xMac as one chooses to call it.

The Mac Pro case design is still exactly what is needed for pros. Unfortunately there just aren't very many of us left. Now days most people can get by with an iMac for intermediate level graphic design.

People who do not have a Mac Pro should not offer advice on what Mac Pro users need.

I hear you. On all points:

- you'll need the space for RAM sticks
- people like to have their drives inside their computer, not externally (most times powered by adapters)
- iMac is no replacement, either because of its integrated (glossy) screen or the lack of internal expendability
- it does seem that non Mac Pro owners are the ones to chime in asap...(but impossible to tell through a copper line)

Me, I just browse the web on an 8 core¡

Seriously, I would rip my head off if Apple discontinues the Mac Pro (hmm, can't after they discontinued the 30"CD). It would mean that I have to connect my 30" to either a Mini, or a laptop. Both not my preferred Mac without the expendability of a Mac Pro.
I’d rather have a better product than a better price.
