It's been (almost) one year since... The mac pro was introduced 1 year ago 1 week from today. Likewise the last spec change to the Cinema Displays also occurred 1 year ago 1 week from today. As August 7th looms 1 week away as a highly rumored release date for new iMac revisions which are also growing old (328 days and counting), no word has come from Apple on a special event - which many expect SJ would introduce any significant redesign with fanfare - and so neither the iMac nor the Mac Pros or Displays have been updated in far too long. And no 8-core Mac Pros with no change to video card options, updated motherboards, or a price reduction in the original Quad configurations do not qualify as a revision, neither do price drops on Cinema Displays which too did not see a spec change and have seen no other changes since last summer. In fact the iMacs as well are just 8 days short of double their average update cycle of 168 days. One can't imagine that they would also approach the one year mark, but at this point with no word on early to mid-August updates as rumored, a September update is not outside the realm of possibility. So what has gotten into Apple that the MacBook Pro Santa Rosa revisions, along with minor MacBook speed bumps and the excuse me but most of us can't afford an 8-core Mac Pro are the only computer revisions to come out of Cupertino this year. 2007....It's just the beginning...? While we have seen new n based Airport Extreme Base Stations, colored Shuffles, and not one but now two Apple TV models (which honestly should have been both available at launch), a delay to Leopard, no word on iLife, and yes, of course the iPhone (I have one) and its cute headset companion, the iMac which was the first to go Core 2 Duo and the Mini, let's not go there, as well as the Mac Pro and displays have been what, shelved? Sure Final Cut Studio saw a major release. But it sure does seem that they are taking their sweet time with a lot of stuff. Which is worriesome as they don't typically like to release much at the same time. Does that mean that if the iMac gets updated, who knows how long they will wait on the Pro equipment? The longer it all takes, the more ridiculous it gets. Will they push it all back some more for another Nano or iPod Video? C'mon they gadgets are great, but I want a new Mac to use them with.
