    If the new iMac's use the quad core, wouldn't that make the Mac Pro too expensive for what it is? They would be updating that to something better, correct?

    This thought just sort of hit me.

    Well yes new Xeon processors are due late march.
    Also a single socket MacPro could be a core i7 instead of Xeon like the current Single socket MacPro and that may drop it back into $1500 range and reappear as its own item in the web store.

    There are lots of possibilities.

    The Mac Pro is a workstation class Mac with the ability to add more hard drives, graphics cards, optical drives, PCIe cards, upgrade the RAM easily in more than two DIMM slots and have choice of display.

    The iMac is an all-in-one Mac desktop class with a built-in display, only one hard drive and graphics card and only two DIMM slots.

    youll know when you need a Mac Pro and iMac's getting quad core wont diminish the sales of quad core Mac Pros.
