Maybe we'll see 27-inch LED cinema displays similar to the new iMac displays... RETINA?!? fingers crossed.
Rack mount is an enterprise feature, Apple really doesn't seem that interested in that space.

Anyone know where there is a torrent for OS X 10.8.3? Or can anyone start a torrent?

What will really bake your noodle is that, you can already find HD7970 cards for 379... dollars.

Ah. The Radeon HD 7000, as opposed to the Radeon 7000 from early 2000's.

.....so this is the way Apple does it huh ?

Buld in "some future" part, and/or diver to an eailer OS, that stands out as a point of "This is gonna be the next big thing, but only because ....it was seen in OS X 10.8.3 beta..." and this matches up with what we know, or may know, about the next Mac Pro....

Interesting concept... but their just giving developers want they want... Information

Its hardly a chore.

I love how some people go on and on about how Apple is the Porsche, Mercedes Benz, BMW, what have you of the PC world. How they're computers for people with taste and money.

But when you talk about the one machine Apple makes that's truly the Porsche, BMW whatever of their lineup, they go on and on about how it's a waste of time because it isn't a computer for the average consumer.

It's like...you know...stupid.

Mac Pro vs iMac

Question for all you Mac Pro users...

I currently own the 2010 iMac 27", 2.93ghz, 1tb, 16gb model....

Do you think the new Mac Pros over a top end iMac is even worth it?!?!?

With Apple's track record I bet the new GPUs will only work with the most recent MacPro, they'll drop support for 2010 MacPros and earlier, and you'll need OSX XI to run it.

I really hope my 1,1 MacPro running OSX 10.7.5 can run it. Apple's focus on everything except iMacs and MacPros is disturbing.

Depends on what you are going to do with it. if the 2010 model is not doing it for you then maybe you should look at one.

Depends on what they want to do with it. About 95% of the people here could easily do everything they need to do with an iMac. Hell, probably 3/4ths of that 95% could eek by comfortably with a Mac Mini when it comes right down to it.

But then you have the true professional. Someone who's editing raw 4k video clips, rendering out high resolution movie scenes, or modeling scientific data. Those people need all the processing power they can get, and is something the iMac can't provide. That's who the Pro is built for.

Apple may drop Mac Pro one day, just like they dropped 17" MacBook Pro due to poor sales. And then they'll tell us that iMac is enough for everyone, just look how it's thin and cool and powerful.

Like antster94 pointed out, the 8000's are on the horizon. So.... one can reasonably assume it will take Apple at least 10 months to add support for those new cards.

Oh...... and the icing on the cake should be when Apple offers an AMD Radeon HD 7970 for something outrageous like $599.00.
Actually, it came out in January.

I'm rocking out with a HD 7950 here, excellent card.
