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.

I'd buy one just for its looks.

The original iMac (G3), the iMac G4 and the Cube. It has indeed been a while since Apple came with not only a beautiful computer, but also one that emits a personality.


I don't find this design beautiful. In fact I think it's rather ugly (particularly when compared to the Cube which was "eye candy", But beauty is a matter of personal preference.

However what really does interest me about the Mac Pro is how it's cooling works. From an engineering perspective, I thing the design is impressive - perhaps even beautiful at an intellectual level if not aesthetically pleasing at an emotional level.

Not sure if I'd want to buy one though - I'm not the biggest fan of OS X (not that I think there's anything wrong with it - that's just personal preference) and the price tag of Apple's hardware is a little expensive if you're just planning on wiping the devices and install Linux / FreeBSD. ;)
