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.

Well from the computing power any PC professional workstation will run circles around this, while costing around the same price.

It is really a form over function Mac Pro.

Apple is always - "form over function", and its ok.

And one reason why, even though I like their designs, never bought one.

Have you priced 12-core Xeon CPUs, PCI-e flash storage and a pair of workstation GFX cards lately?

I doubt the PC can be built much cheaper. Certainly not if you want a manufacturer's guarantee with it.

A similar Dell workstation is nearly $6,000.

But since we don't even have Apple's pricing information yet there's no way to know any kind of price comparison. So you're just blowing smoke.
