From out of nowhere… The nMP is going down the tubes. Cancelled. EOL. In the trash can. Why? Word in Apple HQ is sales of the new form factor are disaster. Worse failure than Power Mac G4 Cube because studios and major buyers complained loudly and then switched to Windows workstations, hit Apple where they feel it. But Mac Pro is not over. Factory now retooled for 7,1. macOS Sierra RAID is not without purpose, but no current Macs have a use for RAID. But macpro7,1 will. Even bigger complaint than loss of vast internal storage? Loss of PCIe slots. Typical studio invested tens of thousands in PCIe hardware now useless with tubular Mac Pro. Easier to switch to Windows than invest in TB. macpro7,1 changes the game. I have seen. Not conventional tower but maybe just as good. Or maybe not. Far superior to Tube Trash Can. Don’t expect anything like cMP tower. Who am I? No one.
