I know that there is a similar thread relating to this but I just need assurances. I am about to buy an 8 core mac pro. I need the thing because my macbook pro (although a wonderful laptop) isn't quite cutting it anymore for me. I work with Final Cut Studio and heavy HD material and I need the advantage of having more power/speed. Anyways, I am ready to buy the mac pro this very second. The only reason I haven't yet is because I have heard rumors that they will do a processor refresh in september (around the sept. 9 event). The last thing I want to do is buy the mac pro right now and then 2 weeks later see the price drop for the same mac pro I get. What are the chances of this happening? I know it's only two weeks away and I should just be patient just to be sure but I want the thing now! Thanks in advance.
