New Mac Pro thread (merged)

OK there it is! What do you think? IMO that's odd, design wise, but refreshing. Like a throwback to the old NeXT cube.

Sign me up!

I have a lot to learn now about Thunderbolt expansion options, etc. I have a Mac Pro 3,1 with a bunch of SSDs and HDDs inside. Need to figure out how to get those external in a Thunderbolt 2.0 device.

My connection cut out right as he introduced it and I came back after the intro video finished. Is all the physical storage done externally?

Seems to be little place for expansion...

Well, at least they didn't kill it off. But unfortunately no internal expandability. So I hope someone makes a great expansion chassis that will take both a pile of SSD's + PCI cards. That would be OK with me.

I think its a little ugly and I'm a bit concerned about graphics (if this thing can't run an NVIDIA card I'm a little screwed) and expandability options (sounds expensive!) but I'm happy it exists at all!

I gambled and I lost. Just bought 2x Samsung SSDs thta I was hoping to transfer over to a new Mac Pro and now that isn't going to happen. Plus do we all want external everything?

Also I use Adobe's video solutions and they NEED CUDA. Having only ATI chips soldered onto the main board screws us.

That'll be an acceptable option. Agreed.

I think they came out with something kinda cool. But it's not what I'm looking for. I might be behind you getting myself a Boxx as well.

You don't unless you want external devices.
