HOLY F**K WHAT CAN I SAY. I FU**ING TAPPED INTO THE GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS MAN. Awesome. Just bloody awesome.

A while back:

[pimped mac mockup shown, without 50cent in it]

SpamSandwich:
Hilarious. You don't suppose they'll create a signature "50 Cent" edition... for $599.50?

"Hiphop rap star 50 Cent is currently in negotiations with Apple's CEO Steve Jobs to produce a line of affordable home computers to inner-city residents, according to a new report. Referencing a report from Forbes, the popular rapper is negotiating the branding deal with the computer /software giant."

And before all of this came out, yeah, guess who made this mockup: (image below)



YEAH BIATTCHHES....! Muah aha ha ha ha ha ha. F**KING AWESOME. Thanks to SpamSandwich and all the others supporting the "Pimped Mac" movement....!
YEAH..

Just my 2 cents....

The MacBook Pro didn't change on the overall design but rather only on minor things then it would stand to reason that the Mac Pro should stay the same just minor updates to the case.
Actually the only Apple PC to get a complete redesign was the iBook to the MacBook.
The iMac, Mac Mini and MacBook Pro only received minor changes, so wouldn't you think the Mac Pro would be the same with only minor changes?

The iMac, MBP and Mini were all released relatively quickly. The MB had more time, and hence adequate time for a thorough redesign. I expect that the Mac Pro will also have a major redesign, although who really knows?

All of the intel Macs have been extensively redesigned - it's just that Apple chose to keep the same exterior appearance for the iMac and Powerbook.

Ummm yea.

I would think by the title of this thread " Post your 2006 ProMac mock-ups here!!" we were talking about the exterior. It is a no-brainer that the internals would be completely redesigned.

You also forgot the MacMini along with iMac and Powerbook.

I think the only reason the MacBook got a redesign in the first place is because of the widescreen.

They have had more than enough time to redesign the entire product line. If you think about it the MacBook Pro had extensive re-tooling for the mods to the case. So saying, not enough time, it would not be that much more time to redesign the case. There is no telling how long Apple knew there was going to be a transition prior to public release of the transition information. So it would stand to reason that they were happy with the current designs.

As far as the MacBook it would be more cost effective and less time consuming to have a fresh design than reworking the old one especially for the wide screen.

Just hope that there will be a smaller version, in terms of the size of a case - the current PM is huge.

I'd imagine it would be slot-load, anyway that looks like a fridge and is not cool. The G5 was way prettier.

Is that correct that Apple are moving their Pro machines to Intel, I was lead to believe that the Power6 AIM (Apple IBM Motorola) chip would be in the new Pro machines. As all the next gen consoles run these chips and the SDK's are tailored towards Macs.

Also have you seen the PS3 XMB video....looks very Apple-esque and they are even using Expose for a feature on their web browser.

Where have you been? Apple announced a year ago the plan to move the whole of their computer lines to Intel processors.

You have been led down the garden path my friend.

Some things you should know:

1.) Apple is going all Intel, and by the looks of the Conroe and Woodcrest benchmarks, that's a very good thing.

2.) AIM is dead

3.) The Power6 is all IBM anyway.

4.) The Power series of chips are IBM's server chips.

5.) The next generation consoles do not use Power6. The XBox uses a chip with 3 PowerPC-like cores (the cores are similar to IBM's PPC 970 aka G5, but less powerful). The PS3 uses a CELL, which contains one stripped-down PPC like core with 8 (or was it 6?) "multimedia co-processors" which can be thought of as souped-up Altivec.

I thought it was the consumer range rather than the pro-range. And would it be a wise move by Apple to move the Pro range to Intel?

Most of the major Pro Apps aren't universal ie: Adobe Creative Suite, Adobe Web Studio, Pro Tools, Avid Media Composer.

Like PB says, where on earth have you been???

Try this thread and this thread.

The consensus is that we'll see the new machines (not a "sneak peak", an actual release) at WWDC. What we will get a sneak peak at is OS X 10.5 Leopard.

I only switched to Mac's late last year. Before that I was 3rd Line Tech support guy and system administrator for an insurance company. PC's and Windows had finally pi**ed me off too much so I switched to mac.

Started with a Mac Mini G4 (recently sold), then bought the MacBook when it came out and tomorrow the 20" iMac should be here.

So I try and get as much info as I can and I was lead to believe IBM was staying in the Pro machines. But as you lot have said this actually appears to be incorrect.

Ah, that explains it. I think there was a bit of speculation/argument when the switch was first announced (in summer 2005, at last year's WWDC) as to whether/how long the Pro machines would stick with PowerPC. Once the MacBook Pro and iMac were announced in January, and information about Controe started to come out, it became pretty obvious that Apple is trying to go Intel as fast as they possibly can. The next "Pro" desktop Mac will definitely have an Intel chip.

Hello and welcome to AppleInsider and the Mac world. You have now joined an exclusive club/ cult . Seriously though, hang out on AppleInsider and these forums and you'll get up to date.

Do not be turned off by some nasty people around here (I would name names but I won't ) - Most people are cool. We were just shocked with what you mentioned, you were like, let's just say, quite late to the party. But have a cocktail and sit back, enjoy the ride. DJ Jobs is spinning in the corner.

Apple has pushed hard ahead with it's Intel transition. A lot of developers have committed or delivered Universal apps. A lot.

In the pro market, Apple is strongly targeting the pro video market, using Apple's Final Cut Studio suite and Shake. Which are all Universal. For music production, Reason, LogicPro, and Ableton Live are all Universal.

Adobe/Macromedia are sticking points, however this I believe lies outside the target zone of the Mac Pro market at this stage. Web design and print production will have to rely on existing Powermac G5s which Apple still sells. Also under Rosetta Adobe/Macromedia does run acceptably under some conditions on the iMac/ MacBookPro/ MacBook despite not being Universal.

when do Adobe and Quark plan on updating to intel versions?

Quark already has a beta of Xpress 7 out that you can download, and the target for final release (free update for Xpress 7 users) is "summer".

Adobe's apps will be univeral in their next full release versions. For the Creative Suite, that should be by this time next year (hopefully sooner, but probably not).

Im personally waiting for CS3 to buy a new computer. I am sick of the lackluster performance of my PowerBook G4 1.67 and cant wait to get a new MacBook Pro, but I dont feel there is much point till CS3 is universal since thats primarily what I use it for.
