I really don't want to stir any feathers as I love this site and have visited it every day for 5 years but I sincerely disagree with MacRumors' decision to reset the upgrade cycle for the mac pro buyer's guide after the miniscule upgrade that was made on 6/11. Apple rescinded the upgrade and I think with that move by them, MacRumors should follow in turn and update buyer's guide to NOT reset the clock for the mac pro upgrade cycle. To be fair, the defense of this action by a moderator is below:
What do you think - should MacRumors keep the clock reset, or continue the clock from the last true upgrade, 685 + X days ago. Please mods, I'm not trying to cause problems, just want to express my voice democratically.So as many have noticed, we've made a compromise on the Buyer's Guide page. We still do consider it to be an update for the purposes of predicting when the next update might occur. (And with Tim Cook having said that an update is coming "later next year" that 427-day average update interval might put us right in the range!)
But we have changed the recommendation to "Don't Buy" because the line remains outdated even with the update.
Basically, if you absolutely have to have a Mac Pro for whatever reason, either buy now or be prepared to wait a year.
