    I thought there was an embargo?

    The PC builder is refraining from providing exact specifications but notes that dedicated graphics are provided from NVIDIA cards and that each system has dual gigabit Ethernet cards for professionals, who can use the ThinkStation as part of a cluster or server. The S10 is targeted at the relative mainstream with a 3GHz Core 2 Extreme QX9650 for its quad-core processor as well as a $1,199 price; the D10 will include the upcoming Xeon 5400 at an unknown clock speed for $1,739. Both systems should be readily available by January.

    They lifted the embargo on the desktop processors. The embargo on the workstation Xeons, however, is still in place. :apple:

    Now, couldn't this be good news for the MacPro? Wouldn't Apple want to get their machine out asap to compete with this other machine? Hoping for November 13/14. :D
