I dont think this has been mentioned before, but.. look at this.. http://www.intel.com/products/processor/index.htm?iid=home+hdr_nav2_processors and this http://www.intel.com/products/server/processors/index.htm?iid=process+server incase you dont notice anything..those are LEOPARDS advertising quad core processors. there aren't on the desktop or laptop processors pages, just the processor page and the workstation/server pages. think its a hint? a coincidence? I know I am grabbing at less then straws. but i want a new Mac pro.
