    WWDC is mid-June. What are the odds :rolleyes: of Apple releasing an updated version of the mac pro before then?

    Mmm...the octo-core mac pros are likely to come out at WWDC '07 IMO...

    And even then the speed of the individual cores probably still wont be as high as 3GHz. I think the current Mac Pro has a lot of leg in it yet, it's quite an optimum balance of power and cores.

    Perhaps, though, we could see a revision to include Front Row and/or a complete redesign...

    But again, the current Mac Pro is spot on really, certainly no reason to 'hold off' buying.

    I NEED Front Row on the Mac Pro, since it will replace an old Winbloze pc that worked as a media center. I am tired of lugging the wireless keyboard with me everytime I wanna watch Scrubs :)

    Octo cores are meh until software is actually written to make use of more than 2 cores anyway (and that will probably be within 4-5 years time of which the octocore will be horribly outdated :p)

    Leopoard will contain Front Row for all platforms including the Mac Pro, until then I think we'll be out of luck.

    Seems a bit of an arbitrary decsion it wasn't there in the first place as it is on the install cd's.
