    So not long now and many initial fears will come to pass that the MacPro will come to an end. Production/distribution of the "Cheese grater w/ pci-e" will stop and the newest Apple Black Cylinder will become the only MacPro sold by Apple? Will this newest incarnation become a new MacRumours Forum on its own, since the hardware and configuration will be so unrelated? What do you think?

    Given that Apple spent serious R&D into the new Mac Pro design, I doubt it'll go away anytime soon. At least, it'll stick around 8 years.

    I agree. And I don't think we'll get a new sub-forum here just especially for the nMP either - regardless how the poll goes. It's still a MP categorically speaking.

    But from a hardware stance they seem polar opposite. Not trying to say Pro's use this or that as some political stance or flame war. :)

    Regardless of what perspective you look at it, the Mac Pro will be here for a while. If it wasn't the case, the current Mac Pro would have been the last generation. Instead, we get a new generation in a new case.

    Yeah, I know what you meant - strictly utilitarian. And you might be right - it's like the difference between a MBP and MB Air and there are separate sub-forums for those. Although I wouldn't have it set up like that myself.

    Am sure the two can live in harmony, the work may still be the same and ideas can still be found from the old Mac Pro camp, bounce thoughts around and I for one may keep my old pair of cheese graters around for a short while dependent of work schedule at the time and of course costs (whether I'd have to sell my mother and the old MP's!)

    i don't really care whether or not a new subforum is added..
    macrumors though has more categories than any other site i can think of atm..
    almost seems like they could consolidate some of them-- but then again, i haven't thought that through at all.

    It will be called a Mac Pro. Folks in this sub-forum would like to see what's going on with it. I say keep it here,

    yeah, that seems to make the most sense.. most people in this forum are at least interested in the new mac and i'm sure, even if they have no intentions of buying one this year, they'll definitely want to keep an eye on the people guinea pigging the new one.

    No thanks, there's not really enough discussion here to need another forum.

    Keep them together

    If you had a Pro software problem would you have to ask in both subforums? Makes no sense.

    Regardless of hardware differences, it's all the same software and many of the same peripherals.

    I agree in the sense, that:
    - I'd like all these "appalled with the new design" -threads separated
    - Most Mac Pro 1,1 - 5,1 threads are related to expansion cards which will not be relevant for (future) nMP -users...

    RGDS,
