...

they may as well tell people in advance, they sell so few of them if people wait it won't affect the bottom line and with the neglect the mac pro has seen it may keep people from switching to windows based servers

I'd be quite happy either way. The current enclosure is fantastic. I'm sure a refresh of the enclosure would have compromises: lack of optical drive for example.

Because they could have made the slight design change three years ago when the regulation was first published. Making the change so late that they'll actually lose sales for a couple of months doesn't make much sense.

Why make it smaller? Its a chuffin workstation.

Aside from a minor re-design and updated parts I can't see what else can be done.

No I don't...might as well release one socket i7. Ivy-Bridge EX still brings more cores on the table then the 6 core Sandy Bridge EX processors.

A complete redesign. It will only be 25mm thick, and will not have any optical bays or easily accessible ram. Aren't you excited !!!?

June, just like every year. But they don't announce new hardware there - that'll be all for OS X 10.9 and iOS 7.

So, that basically means that you'll never be using a display connected via TB?

Groundbreaking design

I wonder if they'll be able to make it taper to a 5mm edge. It'll look like a big metal slice of pork pie. But so thin!!!

I hope for a slightly smaller design height wise so it can fit in a rack like the HP Z series stuff.

What exactly do you have in mind? That would be the Mac mini, frankly.

They announce new hardware there all the time, and they've announced Mac Pros there before.

The Mac mini has no PCI slots. I'd like to see a tower that costs no more than $1500--consumer iMac level CPU, upgradable graphics card, expandability. I've given up on Apple ever doing this, so I just built a Hackintosh instead.

You don't know what a GPU is.

Will it really hurt replacing the "spring" word with a month name? Or maybe you can say 2 times spring and 1 time march. (try googling for spring)

Thanks!

Now, I need some coffee

Just a a guess!
I'd like an updated TB display as well. Make it as thin or thinner than the iMac for consistency sake, replace USB 2 with USB 3. Maybe add SD card slot.

Specifically for the Mac Pro, I see it dumping the optical drive, gaining USB 3 & TB and newer CPU & GPU.

And for those people who have a 2010 MP, you may want to look at these 3rd party upgrades, http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/turnk...Xeon_Processor

4. Integrated Graphics only. No dedicated GPU.

5. Will run iOS instead of OSX.

6. No more Optical drive.

Cancel the order, if not, return for a full refund while you still can.

I think most folks here would like a little more graphics power than the little old mini. Good little machines, but not what you'd class as an expandable, semi future proof computer.

I for one would like to be able to upgrade my graphics card after a couple of years, maybe even the hard drive too. That doesn't sound like the mini as it stands now.

Cheers,

Ray
