Jaguar Premiere Events @ Apple Stores

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Just back from the Palo Alto Apple Store Jaguar Premiere that took place last night from 10:20 PM until about 2:40 AM in downtown Palo Alto California about 30 miles south of San Francisco and 15 miles north of Cupertino. They sold out every dual GHz DMD Macs they had and probably what ever few dual 867s they had. Jaguar was a hit with everyone in the store. My guess is there were at least 300 people that passed through that store last night.

I have to say that the new Macs cannot be comprehended by studying them on this web. You have to see them in person to really begin to appreciate what a breakthrough product that case is. I am certain that one can populate the inside with easily 6 - 200 GB ATA drives for a total of more than 1.1 Terabytes of available storage.

There are 4 fans. Two small ones pushing front to rear through the power supply, one medium fan blowing directly into the side of the dual opticals and one gigantic fan blowing across the enormous heat sink situated in the middle of the insides. There's room for two drives below the opticals and two or maybe even three drives above them. There's also 2 drive slots in the rear under the power supply and behind the heat sink that share the ATA 100 bus.

The mirrored drive doors and frame are all MIRRORED METAL not shiny plastic like the photos would have you believe. Serious metal. And that shiny metal theme includes the rear of the four vent ports. Most of the intake air is undernieth the front NOT through those retro ports.

The box that the computers come in have gigantic blow ups of the ports on the sides. Those ports are almost as cosmetic as the ports on BMW Z1s. But they do look cool.

    just a quick note from the Colorado store. I looked like over 2k mac lovers showed up. I'm sure they didn't finish 'til WAY late. As it was, I couldn't stay and wait to get in. Bummer.

    It was like a Star Wars Premiere for Mac lovers. Pretty cool.
