    lol

    but i'd rather THIS dream come true.

    It's already got me thinking of what monitor I'd get with my mythical midrange mac minitower.
    But then reality hits me and I get sad.

    Refurb Mac Pro = $1799 at apple store

    Used Mac pro can probably be had for around $1,499 to $1,599.

    Yeah, but for a mini tower to be successful, it needs normal DDR2 ram and a normal core series CPU.

    Mini tower users (i.e. me) don't want to pay for server grade equipment for their highly un-mission critical purposes (i.e. gaming).

    What a great article!

    It makes me sad when I realize this won't happen for a while.

    Hopefully, with more and more games being released for Macs, Apple will feel the pressure to build such a mythical gaming-oriented mac. :)

    yeah the Mac Pro is waay too powerful for the casual/semi-serious gamer but theres no way Apple will build a machine that potentially cut into the iMac's sales territory.
