Apple

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 doubt Apple would get something like that wrong... Right?

they did get it wrong in the past

the first generation of mac pros (donT know about the later ones) did overheat under load
same with their laptops


----------edit-----------
another indication of a thermal-problem in the iMer is it's computational power
according to apple it can do 7 TFLOPS with 2 W9000 cards
but it should be 8 TFLOPS
ergo: they are already underclocking them by more than 10%

And when some part in the distant future needs replacing, it'll be simple and inexpensive to do because the MacPro is made with standardized components... Right?

It'll be simple, because you'd just bring it to an Apple store. It won't be cheap, because it's a Mac Pro. If you want cheap, buy something else.

Thom, I believe this thing is not going to sell, at least not to the target audience, pro users. It might sell to Apple aficionados, though. People with a lot of money who don't really need it.

Apple did get it wrong with overheating of Mac Cube. Also, in more distant past, Apple III.

Apple does have a tendency to under value the damage that heat has on a System. However with jobs gone, the engineers may have a say now.
