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.

A worried customer has asked Tim Cook about the Mac Pro.
Tim Cook answered:
"Our pro customers are really important to us...don't worry as we're working on something really great for later next year."
So there will be something new coming for Pro users, but we'll have to wait till 2013.

"We've got something great for all our pro customers... We are stopping production of the Macbooks. The iPad is the future of computing.

Trust us.

Well, you don't have the choice anyway. Suck it."

Not just next year, but "later next year". Which I interpret as "December 31st, 2013", being an optimist an all. ;-)

well, I plan on buying one in 6 months, it is good to hear the graphics card is not changing. the rumor is that the update with have nvidia, I have lost lots of laptops to the furnace hot nvidia's quite frankly I dont want to game that much to melt my laptop down. that is the main reason I want to go with APPLE because the hardware is more durable

I pretty much doubt that e-mail is legit.
