    MP 6,1 Trashcan was the perfect Mac

    I've been an Apple user for over 30 years and have owned many different Macs during that time. For me, the 2013 Mac Pro was the perfect desktop. It was my primary music production computer in my studio. It sat on my desk looking stunning right next to my monitor, it was almost completely...

    MP 6,1 Mac Pro 6,1 - 12core /D700 flicker issue

    So I’ve posted about this before but I’m running out of patience. I’ve had my Mac Pro 6,1 trash can since release. Ironically in the first few weeks of owning it I had a fault., naturally 7£k is a big chunk of money, so with it being so new it was replaced outright by Apple. This in recent...

    Before coming across as a noob asking: my machine has a problem, fix it for me, allow me to shortly introduce it. My 2013 Trashcan always had some weird stuff mostly attached to graphics: once I seemed to have solved it by replacing my mouse: go figure.... Recently my graphics card got fried...

    MP 6,1 2013 Mac Pro not going to Sleep

    Walked into my office this morning to the sounds of a gentle fan. Felt the trashcan, very warm. What is going on? I'm on the latest version of Mojave. It's weird because when I am in windows 10 via bootcamp, it actually goes to "cold" sleep no probs. Anyone have similar problem? Thanks!

    New ASUS PC copies the Trashcan design

    This looks very familiar. Did ASUS learn nothing from Apple's mistake? Looks similar on the inside too.
