Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

Once you take the cover off ...
The chassis is a nice bit of engineering.

Wouldn't buy it, though.
Not really a "powerful workstation" as much as it is a "powerful appliance".

Even if you could expand it using pci-e thunderbolt chassis thingamajigs, you'd still be dependent on those vendors, would have to add yet another cable. What about the next version of osx ... will it support chassis x with card y? What about leenucks compatibility? The SMC on nehalem mac pros (like mine) is pretty poorly supported as is ... i don't imagine that has gotten any better?

VERY cool design, though. I like it a lot! Reminds me of the apple of old, as Thom said.

Now ... wait for the next iLamp ...
