    Doubt if the Mac Pro will become a HAL. People are likely to move to the mainframe / cloud computing model for that kind of horsepower. Movie studios and research will be the exception I think. But it is easier to scale power by increasing nodes in a grid than boosting hardware capacity of a single box. (Yes, you have to write software for it, but thats what x-grid helps you with.)



    The image sucks, btw.

    try this,



    putting just the red eye over the cpu area - if done well, could be cool.



    but visually, the red eye is centered. thanks to kubrick.

    I'm sure anyone can print up a decal if they so desired, might be able to modify the fan module for a little more if a decal isn't good enough. I'm fine with just leaving mine as-is.



    Mac Pro is probably a lot more powerful than what Clarke could have imagined a computer could ever be. But artificial sentience is still harder than anyone imagined as well.

    Not for this crackpot:

    If half the shit he "predicts" had become true HAL would have already existed.
