  • No, Apple's new Mac Pro isn't overpriced

    Why isn't an xMac a Discussion we ALL need to talk about?? This is what the USERS want and need. The Choices Apple gives us is horrible, over priced, non upgradable and rather lame. All The Prosumers/ media creators want a xMac and their all Long Overdue. It's  Huge market that Apple is ignoring and I don't understand why. Under Tim Cook's leadership Apple has Failed it's users with products that have flaws and Wane from The Core values of apple's past. It's become a Luxury brand, trying to suck money from ever pore with Subscriptions(That people don't want) Lack of User interactivity in development and limited innovation.

    A prosumer xMac with a i7 can basically cost around $3k. Less than $1500 in parts in whole sale, making apple 50% profit. You can pull parts for $1500, a Motherboard, ram, CPU, Vid Card, case, powersupply, ect and make your self a Hackintosh, that's Equivalent to a xMac/MacPro. The PEOPLE are making these because of the Failure of Apple. Why can't they make one?

    I'm running a 2008 mac pro and have skipped upgrading over the years to wait for this years Mac Pro, and have been Extremely Disappointed. Been Let down by the Previous trashcan which no one wanted. and have left little choice in cobbling together a Hackintosh or wait till Apple gets off their ass. Seems like employing thousands of people you'd want to sell as much products that people want. Apparently I'm out of the loop somehow. Think how easy it is for Apple to come up with an xMac? It'll be easy! Come on! and nope. Lame.

    A Chi..(Taiwanese) company should give apple a middle finger and make some wheels for the thing for $20. and a stand for $50.
