    Simple question: Do you think they will announce a new Mac Pro on Monday. I would sure like them to, but I'm doubtful they will. I would love to see what the masses on macrumors believe.

    Announce, probably. Ship? No.

    I could definitely live with that. I would almost prefer that because then I could actually BUDGET for it. :eek:

    As I've said before, I reckon it'll launch at WWDC, most likely alongside a new pro app. Logic X and the Mac Pro are both LONG overdue, so what better way for Apple to renew professional customer interest than to release both at the same time?

    One theory I have in the back of my head (it's only a vague one that I don't think has much weight behind it at all, but still) is that the recently pictured 'Wave' banner with an 'X' actually represents Logic X rather than a new naming scheme for OS X, which I think will come after v10.9. The wave image could represent sound waves and the new font used for the 'X' could symbolise a redesign of the UI. Using a physical wave for the sound wave could stand for it being a new, natural way for musicians to record with.

    Just a thought.

    If the Thunderbolt fanatics get their way, it won't be a new "Mac Pro".

    The Mac Pro as we know it will be discontinued, and we'll get a new Mac Prosumer replacement instead.

    Why would they be showing off Logic at WWDC? This isn't Macworld 2.0. It is a developer conference, mostly iOS focused.

    I thought developers wrote OSX apps.

    It's not the WWIOSC.

    No but there are a great deal more iOS developers than those solely developing OS X.

    Possible mention, no real announcement, no ship.

    Think about it

    Your reply was basically why would they show off software at a developers conference.

    No. It's several months away from a release. Be patient.

    I think Apple may announce a new Mac Pro but ordering/shipping will be 3rd Qtr.

    Agreed. I'll keep an open mind. I'll be glad to wrap this saga up one way or the other. I get a machine with enough power and extensibility...or I have the information I need to comfortably migrate to a Windows workstation.

    I likely don't fall into the 90% of users that Apple will be targeting. I hope I'm wrong.

    I voted "No," but I hope that I'm wrong.

    More why would they highlight Logic X at WWDC as I took OS X Dude's comment to mean.

    No, they already have plenty to talk about.

    (But like everyone else: I hope I'm wrong!)

    I can't see it. Unless Apple have some inside info that Ivybridge-E is going to be delayed till late 2014 and that they cannot wait that long.

    I just cannot see Apple launching a new Pro machine on Sandybridge-E this late in the processor's life.

    Yes

    My friend with friends at Apple tells me it's likely. Perhaps it's wishful thinking, though. I doubt they'll ship before the fall. Sandy Bridge is too old - the backlash from announcing a Sandy bridge processor upgrade now would be very severe.

    Apple is sort of in a corner. If they announce something new that ships ASAP, then people will be disappointed at already dated technology...again. If they don't announce anything, they will lose even more people to other systems.

    I HOPE they announce something to be shipped later, like many people have said.

    My guess is that they will have a July or August event right before back to school for the announcement of new computers.

    Announce now, ship later. Hopefully no radical change that will make the Mac Pro a less useful product or a mess of cables.

    Thunderbolt is great and you can pretty much do anything with it except graphics cards I suppose.

    I didn't know there were fanatics. Does that mean your'e anti THunderbolt?
