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.

Oooh look...a troll. Hasn't seen even the first unbiased review and already has an "informed" opinion. Wow.

It's easy to form an opinion. The power supply is woefully inadequate. Internal expansion is non-existent. RAM is severely limited. The Xeon CPU and workstation GPUs are expensive and unnecessary hardware choices.

Having a HP Z-600 at work, that has never crashed I think I would certainly buy a Xeon rig in the future.

Thought it won't be from Apple.

Do you even know what a troll is? Your short post tries to get an emotional reaction and has no content. His post is a well supported opinion.

Given that the specs list processors that don't even exist on ARC, the base version looking like it's less capable than a i7 4770K (what I'm running) the base model has RAM slower than my desktop (I'm on G'Skill Sniper DDR3 2400), the base model 'd300' is just rebranded Radeon 7850's -- as opposed to the GTX 780 I'm running that can by itself outperform 7850's in SLI...

If you know ANYTHING about the hardware used, you can make an informed opinion...

Though the real laugh has been watching the likes/dislikes ping-pong on the post... High of +8, low of -6... it's at what, -2 right now. Good for a laugh.

Of course, you list facts and refer to ACTUAL values, you're a troll. You yell "TROLL, how dare you say something bad about the big shiny Apple" you're a reasonable poster, right?

I think the real laugh is the people who don't seem to grasp that high end professional workstation systems are targeted towards markets which differ, severely, from the "DIY and overclock all the things" home gaming rig market you're using to justify your "point."
