Apple today announced the all-new Mac Pro will be available to order starting Thursday, December 19. Redesigned from the inside out, the all-new Mac Pro features the latest Intel Xeon processors, dual workstation-class GPUs, PCIe-based flash storage and ultra-fast ECC memory.

This thing is so damn awesome. I don't need it, but I still want one.

I found that ... by the time you have a properly built system with comparable components [ECC RAM, processors etc] and expansion capabilities; the much vaunted price gap with HP etc is usually negligible if at all.


You don't need ECC RAM, Xeon CPUs or workstation video cards for multimedia work. Decent gaming hardware works just as well for a fraction of the cost.

However you do need a real Windows certified workstation for high level physical engineering and mathematical simulation because precision is an absolute must.
