    He's been a fan since he first saw it and going on about how he's use it as the ultimate media centre.

    He's one of those people who it is ideal for. It's different in design to wow and spark conversation, it's powerful enough and he can easily write it off as an expense to where the price (or price difference) doesn't matter.

    Sadly TWiT is pretty lacking when it comes to pro-hardware knowledge, although they can better than others.

    I'm not surprised that he is a fan. Not sure how much weight his opinion carries these days though. I haven't followed him in some time.

    Leo was not that impressed with the nMP when it was first shown but is now in love with it after using it. BTW here is a youtube video of him upgrading his 2010 Mac Pro last year.

    Yea, when I first saw that video it almost made me embarrassed that I took his words so seriously back in the TechTV days. I'm not even interested in his opinion anymore.

    I don't think he was a fan when Apple first previewed it last June.

    Maybe not the first day, but he has been excited about it for months and months whenever it is brought up on TWiT or MBW

    Or maybe he's trying to suck up to Apple so he could be invited to attend the next Apple events. He was banned from doing so a while ago...

    But Leo mostly plays for his viewership, which tends to include a bit more Apple users than PC.

    I don't agree with everything Leo says. Particularly I don't care for when he goes on his Apple isn't innovating rants. Other than that I enjoy listening to his podcasts he's very engaging.

    It was a nice podcast, and I'm not surprised he fell in love with it. I'd agree with his complaints about the keyboard and mouse. Plus his idea of bundling pro apps to make the purchase more appealing was a great idea.
