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.

Yeah but the mac pro case, heat flow, energy efficiency, and overall build quality can't be touched for any price.

If you want cases built that perfectly, with doors that slide and open smoothly for 5+ years, proper backlighting, and quietest it can be - no one is touching apple.

Non-mac people are still amazed at the way my 1999 G4 tower slides open with one click. True - somethings in mac's are not user upgradable, but everything that is is crazy easy to do.

I'd love to see the price on a PC case that even comes close to what Apple's new mac pro case offers.

I think mobile has finally taught us that what's on the outside surface and ports of a modern computer is at least as important as what's inside. They are all fast with lots of RAM these days - it's about usability, resolution, volume, max number of devices that can be connected, energy use, etc..

Check out the Dell Precision systems - super easy to work on with very well engineered interiors. Everything is super easy while being super upgradable like a regular PC.

Sure, the guts may not slide out when you pop open the side panel, but it is completely tool-less, all the cables are routed so well that access is easy without needing the guts to slide out.
