I was worried that it looked susceptible to scratches...Just from putting the nMP back in the box in the styrofoam I can see minor scratches/marks that won't come off with a microfiber cloth. Either they were there prior or the styrofoam was the cause. Curious in anyone else noticed this.
I'm sure in a couple months we'll know if this is normalI was worried that it looked susceptible to scratches...
I think a sleeve of some sort might be in order. Something to knock the shine off of that thing, while also protecting it from scratches. Could just be real thin cloth....nothing that would have insulating properties per se.
...and seriously are you talking about a tea cosy for a MacPro?I'm sure in a couple months we'll know if this is normal
For this to happen, it'll depend on how Apple does their thermal flow.won't run without cover on.
would be kinda cool if someone came up with a clear cover to replace the black one. (the insides are so frigging beautiful!)
Just point one of these at it:...
Anyone willing to attach a thermal sensor to their nMP casing?
My guess would be that any convection cooling from the outside of the tube is completely irrelevant compared to the forced air cooling inside the tube.Option A:
If the Aluminium casing is used to dissipate heat, and unless you can find a transparent aluminium or copper, then you'll be looking for trouble.
Huh? It's a computer. Use it, no need to touch it.Every Mac Pro I've seen so far seemed to be almost dull in appearance, with virtually no shine whatsoever.
I think it's because everyone wants to touch it to see how cool it is, and to try to feel the fan inside. I didn't see any scratches, but the fingerprints were literally over every inch.
Speaking of touching it. There's something eerie about touching one. It's made of metal, so your instinct tells you it should feel either cold... or hot, but it's kinda lukewarm, which is a temperature your body is not accustomed to feeling in a metal.
Hmm..I'd love to see some pictures of these alleged scratches. I've owned several iPads and have an iPhone 5 and none of them had/have scratches. My iPhone 5 is in a case, but not my iPads.So let me get this straight... Apple takes a **** on you, as a consumer, by using the cheapest materials they can find to manufacture your computer...
And your solution to this problem is to wrap the computer up in some sort of scratch resistant coating? When did Apple manufacturing products that easily chip, ding, dent, and show signs of wear at the slightest provocation become the norm?
Again, they are scuffs. Can't feel them with your fingers or nails, but are visible when the light hits a certain way.Hmm..I'd love to see some pictures of these alleged scratches.
