A different purpose and target market would be between the iPhone and the Mac. Within the Mac line they're essentially the same, with variations to fit whatever specific the customer wants. The MBP can certainly act as either a desktop or mobile regardless.




You're comparing a Xeon with dual GPU's against a monitor with a consumer CPU inside which is the largest difference between the Macs. Any way you cut it given the BOM on the new Mac Pro the chances of it coming in at $1.5k is practically zero IMO.
A laptop and a desktop are not the same market. That is like saying a car and a mini van are the same market. Also, you are assuming that all Mac Pro's are going to come with a dual GPU. We shall wait and see though.

I think dual GPUs are one of the actual certainties we know about the new Mac Pro. Why would you think otherwise?

Ingram Micro shows 4x16GB LPDDR3 1600 @ $597 and 4x32GB LPDDR3 1600 @ $1859.

Personally, I don't buy retail. And I understand that very few have access to wholesale prices. But if you look around, you can find pretty good prices on sites like Newegg and ProVantage.

If I'm lucky then the Apple Tube is coming in at a (too) high price, sales stay pathetic and after one year Apple declares that production of the MacPro will be suspended indefinitely (sounds familiar? ).

Then Apple will try to get rid of their stock and i can get a good price on the 2013 Cube...
