I'll have to make room on my desk amid all of these Thunderbolt expansion enclosures, RAID systems, converters etc. Saving space is so cool!

I wonder if any tech site was given one to review.

I'm sure it's a nice computer, but not being able to choose dual Xeons is just wrong for a workstation. I guess all of us who waited and waited, and eventually went over to Win/Linux, certainly won't be coming back because of that fact.

Possibly the most despised pre-release Apple product in MacRumors Forum history, next to the original iPad.

Less than $10,000? A great bargain compared to spending over $12,000 for my 40MHz Mac IIfx about 13 years ago.

You could be right here. It could also just be an allusion to most of the orders being BTO, especially if they are configured and assembled in the US.

Not to make you feel old, but don't you mean 23 years ago? And what would that be in today's dollars? Daaaaaamn ...

Why is it Apple's job to make you a display? You know that there are countless display manufacturers, right? You also know that even if Apple made a display, you would just complain about it being 'too thin' and 'too expensive' before buying from someone else anyways, right?

If anyone was actually buying Apple displays, Apple would update them more often.

I'm good with that. They can ship in February for all I care, just so I get this end-of-year hardware budget spent before the end of the year so I don't have to pay taxes on it.

It's great that you found something that works for you. I'm sure you'll never have any regrets.

It may be that Apple will farm those out to its current partners. LG just came out with their 4K T-Bolt display; I assume others will follow.

It is. That's why I'm getting one of these:

I knew I was dumb for thinking I could a higher-end version for less than $4000. Oh well.

Yes, looks that way. and given the timing it's pretty clear that nothing will ship before Christmas. They really pushed it back as far as they could. I really wonder what the hold up is. I thought it might be a new display but it doesn't look that way. some production issues? I can't imagine what kind. It's not like they need to produce these things in large numbers.

I'm thinking that if you read Apple's press release you'll know as much about it as most everyone here.

I hope that they include a small Apple logo decal that I can stick on the monitor that I end up coupling it with.

Stuff like that really makes me marvel at how people can ask that amount all that time ago.
Relatively speaking what were house prices like then, how many of them would buy you a house instead?
