    No, this is your second imcomprehensible post in a row.

    At least work on getting your terminology correct.

    In other words: wait for the GPUs to come out. A lot will be clearer.

    Wow.

    We've been waiting for five years for ATI to come out with a competitive GPU. And they've never not failed to disappoint us.

    idk, maybe that's what modular means..
    the whole thread is full of guesses regarding the vague descriptor "modular"

    If Apple would just use words like everyone else, we wouldn't all be confused!

    I dont agree. its been YEARS. they ignored it, plain and simple. Anytime cook says 'good things in the pipeline' its a bald faced lie in my humble opinion.

    yeah, probably right.
    it’s been a while since this thread was active but i don’t agree with what i said back then.
    my guess now has Apple nearly dropping macPro for iMacPro then changing their mind last minute.

    something like that

    my trashcan has always run hot. Hot enough for me to get continuous hard drive heat warnings from DiskWarrior. I have had to install fan control software to run the fan high enough to keep it cool -- so I always hear it.....befvore the trashcan I had a loaded iMac i7 -- which I took in repeatedly for heat issues (apple said it was operating normally)...of course the GPU fried on it.

    Ive doesn't have a clue about thermodynamics or he simply doesn't care. The entire offing company seems to run with a malicious compliance mentality.

    Dont even get me started about this piece if crap 2016 MBP. The keyboard is complete ****.

    High Sierra betas aren't revealing support for any new hardware coming apart from a mysterious one with a single microphone (which isn't a Mini or a HomePod) but whose hardware more closely resembled a MacBook but every laptop in the Apple range has 2 microphones (for better pickup).

    I'd say that's a base model iMac waiting in the wings - 21.5" base model which could make the entire range retina but it would be strange to have that released by itself unless the rest of the range was about to go Space Grey and a bit more "Pro" with 6 core CPUs etc next year.

    May be the mMP or the new mini has a single mic for Siri.

    Hard truths about the promised Mac Pro:

    1. It will be as closed as Apple can make it.

    2. It will be too expensive for what it offers.

    3. People will complain about it no matter what.

    Yep, that's basically what I'm expecting. If the iMac Pro starts at $5000, I'm guessing the MacPro won't start at less than that, and then there will be a $1000 monitor on top of it.

    And I believe this is what's it's gonna look like. Modular could as well mean stackable modules made by Mr. Apple company.

    Perhaps, but I think that's a truly awful solution. The people I know who truly need a new MP simply need a newer cheesegrater type, with modern internals.

    I agree with you. That is just the worst nightmare I modelled a few years ago. Looks good, but works terrible.

    I think we'll see similar prices to what they are now, with a base model going for around $3000.

    Thank You.
    I too wish they will eventually understand the needs of ours, and that they will deliver the good stuff for us. Why not, is there anything to loose? Everyone knows Apple lost it last time with the Mac Pro. They have said so themselves. It's just that do they really understand what went wrong. And do they really understand they might need and want the creative people to stay with them. To stay with their platform. I think platform is everything for them. I believe their Platform is not only iPhone, it's a lot more. I think they should not forget that.
