Like the title says.



When do you think it will fall from the tree?



And, as always, no wagering, please.

    MWSF is my bet. But it could chime in around Leopards release. If not expect a brand new Mac Pro at MWSF.

    Yep, that's what got my vote. Would love it if my next box came out in October or November, but realistically don't expect to see it before January.

    I hope no later than November.

    Time to get my tax deductions of the year going! :-)

    I'm guessing they either get the new chip early or the all 8-core lineup debuts at MWSF.

    My first feeling was that the Mac Pro would get the most attention at MWSF, but also that the penryn-Xeons would be available late, late 2007. Given this new information about the Xeons being launched mid-november, I kinda hope that the Mac Pro would be released late november/early december and that the focus of MWSF would turn too more "consumer oriented" computers, if you see what I mean...

    Like others have said, Apple could also get the first crack at the Penryn Xeons and have them debut along side Leopard

    Does Apple ever take 'first crack' at anything? Whats the track record on being the first to use a cutting-edge component?

    hehehehehe



    One thing to take notice is, if Apple is planning to redesign the enclosure for the MacPro I would expect Steve to make a big deal of it. So I would think a special event before the end of the year or then at MWSF.

    If the enclosure still the same and displays as well, then maybe just an ordinary Tuesday announcement IMHO before the year's end.



    At MWSF it will depend on what Steve has under the sleeve to announce there. With iLife and iWork out of the way, maybe the focus will be entirely on hardware. I would predict there perhaps the ultra-portable, AppleTV 2.0 and iPhone nano. That would be a lot to talk about.



    We'll see.

    How could a computer look better than the current Mac Pro?

    Maybe hidden ports, but that's about it.

    If it was a tad shorter it would look better to me.

    I thought it was all a matter of size?

    It is. And something to large can't fit in my small hole (of my cabinet).

    I don't see a new Mac Pro coming out until January next year, it's possible it could come out before Christmas but unlikely imo.

    Not everyone is a big fan of the handles.

    Most of us are fans of the handles. Musicians mostly. Dragging a Mac Pro into the studio, on the road, or anywhere was a pain before the G3 had handles.

    The clumsy Italian removal man.



    I don't see what the fuss is about the Mac Pro, it's too big and expensive for most people. I don't care if they never update it again because I'm never going to pay for a monstrosity like that to sit at my desk.



    Penryn in November would be great for a smaller version though ( "Penryn uses less power under maximum load than Conroe does at idle" ). Wouldn't that make a nice Christmas present?
