New Mac Pros To Be Announced Next Week

CompUSA just put the Mac Pros to "D status" and new model were coming in next week. All of the current Mac Pros are beings pulled off the shelves (even the demo models) in order for the new inventory. Trust me this happened with the C2D MacBook Pros. Announcement next Tuesday.

Any hints on the specs? Sounds like a sure thing, though.

It would be nice to see a new design but iam guessing at new internals, faster componets and the same Radiator Look from the 50s.

I think they should bring back Bakelite™.

While it may have been with the MacBooks, I wouldn't count on it.

Many, many things have happened like this - and were completely irrelevant to release.

JackSYi quote court my attention re model change.

Im looking at changing over to Apple 15in Power NB or the 24In IMac. Does Apple do yearly updates to existing models as I hate to buy and then find I should have waited 1 month for the latest.
Any feed back would be great thanks.

Both products have been recently updated if you are referring to the 15 inch MacBook Pro and the 24 inch iMac. No need to wait a whole month for nothing. Buy it now.

If by "recently" you mean Sept. 6 for the iMac and Oct. 24 for the macbook pro, then yes.

That said, I can't see an update until there are new chips to use. The merom chips in there now are as good as intel has got, so I don't think there will be a new model until there's a new chip.

Maybe not next week, but very soon.

*Correction. The memo was read wrong, they aren't being discontinued.

I just checked several CompUsa stores and they all have them in stock ready to pick up.

I don't really keep tabs on CompUSA, but if memory service me correctly, they have always been one of the last people to know. I remember after the first G4 iMac was out they still had only G3 iMacs for a few weeks.

who knows though, I really haven't been following CompUSA. I would be cool to see some new hardware. Although I am getting the new Airport, I have been disappointed in the hardware (or lack of) thats been released lately.

An octo core Mac pro? What will that do to the price? Will the new base price be 3500 in stead of 2500? (Kidding)

I am an Apple SOlutions COnsultant in a CompUSA and I have not seen any of this. If it did in fact go D Status then we wouldnt "pull" the model from the floor. It would go Clearance and we would sell the unit. Apple does not take back discontinued models the retailers including their own are obligated to sell them. There have been some times before that CompUSa has been notified early about a new model but I have not seen it this time around.
*Not that I could tell you if by some chance they told me but still*

I REALLY hope so. I've got two Apple Store gift cards totalling $300.00 from Christmas that have been waiting for a Mac Pro update, not to mention my student discount.

IMHO, we don't need any exterior changes. Well, some e-SATA ports would be nice. All we need are the octo-cores, and BETTER VIDEO CARD OPTIONS. (Are you reading this, Steve?) Put an 8800GTS in there for crying out loud! The 1900XT is old hand, especially considering the 1950 is out, and the new R600 core is being announced in March.

Comp USA is not known to get the newest Macs right away, I have seen it take several weeks.
