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.

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.


What makes you think compatible upgrade components will be available in the future, at an Apple store or anywhere else?

Because Apple and the third party manufacturers have a long history of making parts for, and supporting, the prior generations of Mac Pros. I'm replying to you on a 2008 Mac Pro that I've upgraded multiple times in the last year, so I know a lot more about this subject than you do.

Didn't previous Mac Pro versions use standard PC components that snapped into standard slots?

How many upgrade components were available for the Mac Cube?
