Mac Pro the waiting joke

Mac Pro is all about waiting. I was waiting for the new one to be released in 2012 and did not happen. After all this waiting game I went out and bought the highest quality PC components (ASUS Rampage IV Extreme with USB 3, i7-3930K, EVGA 670 FTW, Crucial M4, 16GB Corsair Dominator GT, bluray disc LG BH10LS38 Super Multi Blue, etc) and assembled them myself. I run Win 7 and Ubuntu in dual boot.

It works like a dream and paid a fraction of what the museum Dinosaur Mac Pro costs.

Btw,
just noticed that Dell is now offering new model; U2713H, which have daisy chainable dp1.2 and usb3 hub + matte screen + 14-bit LUT...

This is just another problem for macs with TB, there's no dp1.2...

Even though as nice as that is and it's a monster of a PC. Great for gaming and overclocks very well. You're still missing an extra CPU so that explains the huge save in money.

Now where did I say that Switzerland wasn't part of Europe, EFTA, or schengen? I said it wasn't part of the administrative monolith that is the European Union.

Right thing to to, over bureaucratic European Union reminds me of the former Soviet Union, the future is in the Far East and in America where you can still buy the mac pro.

I have it on good authority that THIS is the next generation Mac Pro coming out in June of this year. They did away with the optical drive bays (surprise surprise) but went to a sleek new chrome finish and it now has a new easy carry travel handle. And check out all that ventilation so it doesn't overheat!

Information on the EU Amendment was initially released in December 2009 and was originally due to take effect on July 1, 2012 so I think Apple had more than ample time to redesign the fans and shield them from little fingers.
