Apple Offers Sneak Peek of Completely Redesigned Mac Pro
At today's WWDC keynote event, Apple offered a sneak peek of its next-generation Mac Pro, a line of desktop computers that has not received a significant update in several years. The preview began with a teaser video showcasing the radically redesigned tubular tower.
Compared to the previous Mac Pro, the next-generation model is approximately 1/8 the size. The new Mac Pro will also be assembled in the United States. A special WWDC session tomorrow will see representatives of The Foundry and Pixar showing off how The Foundry's MARI 3D digital paint tool can take advantage of the upcoming Mac Pro hardware.

I love the power, but I don't care about the size.
Still, this machine isn't designed for me. I'm good with a MacBook Air.

Looks really cool, but It does remind me a bit of a garbage can :P

Made out of plastic? Seriously? Spend $1299 and get a nice aluminum iMac. $2499 gets me a plastic Mac Pro(predicting cost of the new Mac Pro)? Screw that.....
EDIT: I was mistaken. This was posted before Apple posted the information.

I personally think it's super awesome, but I know the Mac Pro lovers aren't going to be happy. Expansion has moved external =|
EDIT: Though it does, indeed, look like a trashcan

It's the G4 Cube evolved. Except this time they don't need to sacrifice performance for size and appearance. The original Cube failed because it was underpowered, but 13 years of technological advancements have finally made this stuff possible again.
Can't wait to see benchmark comparisons when it comes out.

So, that's what the offspring of an Alienware tower and a Mac mini looks like. Here's my plan.
1. Get a job that pays
2. Take PTO
3. Camp in front of Mac Store
4. Buy the new Mac
5. Have a gasm that have new hardware
6. Complain next year that my hardware is woeful out of date.

As a music studio engineer, looking to upgrade our current Mac Pro, the new Mac Pro might be an economically turn off.
Our system needs two PCI-express slots and several harddrives for projects, sample libraries etc. Buying a Mac Pro, AND a PCI-express chassi, AND external harddrive chassi, might be waaaaaay to much money to spend.
Note that i wrote "might be". I sure do hope i.e. Magma chassis get alot cheaper along with other Thunderbolt devices.
