Many here remain sadly mistaken as to the future of their beloved Mac Pros. As I said some 14 months ago (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=846591), there will be no new Mac Pros. The IT guys were in denial about the imminent death of the xServe, and many of you Workstation guys are in denial about the end of slots/bays. Please try and accept the fact that the 2011 iMac and the 2011 Mac Mini will be the only new desktop machines for Mac OS X. Thunderbolt is the writing on the wall many refuse to see. You must change your workflow to adapt, or die.
