Mac Pro's finally seeing an update soon... now that there are actually, you know, new Xeons to update to.


Absolutely no excuse to continue selling it for a $5000 price point starting.


Other than the fact it's a workstation class machine. Whining fanboys wishing it were a normal tower desktop won't change that one bit.

Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

You have the choice between a "desktop" with laptop components or a Mac pro with three year old CPUs and GPUs.

And you have the choice to buy something else if those things don't suit your needs.

Lulz at thinking this is an excuse either. Besides, being the apple apologist that you are makes you the fanboy, not us who see through their bs pricing.

Apple has some great products. They have great, well priced ultrabooks, phones and tablets. The rest of their computer line needs to step iit up for what you are paying.

While they're lacking in features compared to some other mp3 players, there wasn't really anything else that could touch my 160GB gen 6 iPod either that I'm aware of when I bought it.

iMacs are ridiculous. You pay between one and two grand for a desktop with laptop components. That's kind of funny actually.


Please use Newegg and build an equivalent desktop to this:

You don't have to make it all-in-one.

Last big topic I remember seeing with Orestes + Apple (couple months ago) involved him hating something about Apple. Can't remember what though.

His common sense =/= apologist. The point is that all workstations are similarly priced. If you hate on Apple for that, you should also hate on Dell, HP, etc., yet people specifically target Apple.

Also, your gamefox quoting is outdated now.
