Apple Marco Arment: "After two years, the Mac Pro was 'updated' today, sort of: now we can choose slightly faster two-year-old CPUs at the top end, and the other two-year-old CPU options are cheaper now. That's about it. No Xeon E5 CPUs, no USB 3, no Thunderbolt. They're even shipping the same two-year-old graphics cards. Same motherboard, slightly different CPU options from 2010. That's it. The message is clear: Apple doesn't give a shit about the Mac Pro." Paint, red, scout, girl.

This is just apple trying to kill the computer as we know it. They sell consumer goods, they want you to have a device to listen to music, one to browse the web and another one to use as a phone. All made by them.

The MacbookPro with retina display is the new Mac Pro. What a joke. Trading Xeon cpus and ECC memory for standard consumer parts that are "good enough".
