I've heard nothing about when the new Intel Power Mac will be coming out? Some say July and some say next year.

Does anyone know or has there been any news from Apple?

It won't happen next year - Steve told us they would finish 'em this year

Wait for the Intel release of Conroe/Woodcrest first, then look for the Mac Pro.

Oh, by the way, there are at least 3 other threads on this same item already...right???

Yeah, I think it's safe to say an announcement at least won't be around until the Woodcrest/Conroe processors are released. They wanna make the Mac Pro stand out as a high end machine. Good things come to those who wait. :D

Other than the chips, I bet that the Mac Pro's are ready to go. I'm guessing that they might be easier for Apple to have built than the G5's were:
- Maybe Intel will be designing the motherboard.
- I'm guessing that the Intel Mac Pro won't require the sophisticated cooling system in the current G5's.

Regardless of when the CPU's will be ready, I bet that Apple will hold off from releasing the Mac Pro until all or at least a majority of Apple's pro apps are universal. What good is a super machine if it cannot run super software?
