if that's the topic, i would definitely say cpu, gpu, ram, thunderbolt, enclosures, and all the other things being discussed around here rank very low on the list of importance..

Yeah. But of course that's only his idea of the topic. It seems pretty clear to me though: "Opinions: Does the New Mac Pro qualify as a Workstation?" and the whys and why nots thereof I suppose.

Awesome! Or we could sell jedi boxes... This box isn't here... These are not the boxes you're looking for...

Since the sentence specifies "of what I read" I'm afraid you would have had to move in with me and look over my shoulder from my first visit to the site till now.

'A general-purpose computer with a higher performance level than a personal computer.
An area where work of a particular nature is carried out, such as a specific location on a manufacturing assembly line.'

Workstation: computer which can work hard all day long, day in day out, without overheating, producing a sound like a starting jet-engine or destroying harddisks. A workstation is a like a truck, it might have less horsepower than a Ferrari, but it moves more stuff around anyhow.

Just my thought...
