About 7 or 8mths ago I signed up for the Hellgate: London beta trials. I have a ppc mac, but have had the money for a mac pro upgrade squirreled away for a while. There's a couple of reasons I didn't buy the intel based Mac Pro's off the bat. The first being, I never buy first revisions. They inevitably have kinks to be worked out and "issues". Some examples would be the first revision ppc Powermacs. The high end card available for them at the time caused loss of all video when transitioning from full screen opengl mode back to desktop if fullscreen was run for more then say, an hour or so. With the mac pro, we've seen heating issues with the cards and various problems with bootcamp amongst others. Anyway, I couldn't imagine a technology product going without revision for as long as it's been. So I signed up thinking there'd be no way a nice, shiny revision 2 Mac Pro wouldn't be sitting under my desk by now. The Hellgate beta acceptance notification just served as a stark reminder of how stale the Pro line has gotten. Here's to hoping we don't set a "dead horse" record with 2 year old Mac Pro.
