Apple John Siracusa: "On paper, the Mac Pro may no longer be a viable product, but it would be a mistake for Apple to abandon the concept that it embodies. Like the Power Mac before it, the Mac Pro was designed to be the most powerful personal computer Apple knows how to make. That goal should be maintained, even as the individual products that aim to achieve it evolve." I agree wholeheartedly. The Mac Pro - and the PowerMac before it - are amazing products, and I would be quite sad to see them go. They may not always lead the pack in performance, but when it comes to sheer engineering and interior design, they are among the very best. I have zero need for a Mac Pro, but to this day, I always take a few minutes to admire it whenever I pay a visit to my Apple retailer.

The best Mac ever made (well actually my favourite one) is....
the cube of course.

For me, one of the nicest "Mac" machines (very loosely) has been the NeXTCube. Might not be up everybody's trumpet, but it is probably the closest oddity to a Cray-1 in terms of design you can get. Oh and the OS was totally bad-ass too.

Best as in nicest looking. It had huge problems with heat and with people at parties pouring their drinks into them.

My favorite is the Mac SE/30. Once I pay off my credit card bill I'm getting one off eBay.
