How many people would be interested in a Mac Mini Pro like this: Summary: Essentially the new mac pro would be based on a very compact core unit, and several stackable thunderbolt expension stations the size of the core unit. Total size would be around 1/3rd the size of the Mac Pro for the same level of performance and expandability, with expansion units. Form Factor: The Base Unit would be slightly larger than a Mac Mini, 10 x 10 x 2 inches. Each expansion unit would have the same outside dimensions with varying thickness depending on their purpose. Very similar in design to the Mac Mini but larger to accomodate desktop processors and high end laptop video cards. Specs Summary: The base processor would be a single six core e5-1650 with boost up to 3.8ghz. You could have up to 3 xeon processors, and 4 laptop graphics cards in SLI. This would be around double to tripple the performance of the current top end mac pro. The only processor option would be a e5-1650, but you'd have a choice of up to 3 of them, for $650 more each. The base unit would have a GeForce 680MX mobile graphics card, and only SSD storage. You would have 10 thunderbolt ports, which would each work in daisy chain to add up to 140 3.5" hard drives. For a total maximum of 560 terrabytes of storage. Ram would be desktop ram in up to 8 dimms, for a maximum of 128gb. Graphics would come in 1 2 3 4 card flavors, for $550 per card. The top spec would perform as well as dual GeForce Titan setup. Thunderbolt expansion units would come in flavors that house 2 3.5" drives, a single 16x pci express card, a double wide pci express card, or a tripple wide pci express card. If using two thunderbolt cables and two ports you could get full 16x speeds, or one cable would result in 8x speeds. Daisy chaining would reduce speeds. Each expansion chassis would have it's own power supply, with PCI e expansion slots having 300watts with 3x 6 pin, and a 6 pin to 8 pin conversion cable, and fans to maintain air circulation.
