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 was about to buy a mini as a new audio and video production machine. I need the backward compatibility of firewire and I need the quiet machine to sit in the mixing room.

This new pro is really interesting because it's so light, quiet, and efficient for how powerful it is.

My only complaint is being stuck with those massive video cards. I don't do much high-end video editing and would prefer to put that money into RAM and more HD space. (But like most mac producer people, I can cut HD video and possibly be paid for it with that kind of rig.)

Anyway - my first mac was an entry level power pc and it cost $3000 for just the CPU, in 1992 dollars. mac prices have come down since the early days. this is a bad machine for $3k, considering how quiet, light, and efficient it is.

1992? The first PowerPC Apple machine wasn't released until 1994.
