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.

I just don't need a desktop AND a laptop. I don't buy Apple laptops, so for about $500 I can get a good dual-core laptop with 4-8gb of Ram. I use to use desktops as media servers, but a $50 Roku box does that now. YMMV
