    When will Apple upgrade the MacPro line.

    The current machines have not seen a major upgrade for over a year.

    It is frustrating waiting for the MacPro line to be refreshed.

    No one but Apple knows. I too am quite frustrated... Hoping the wait is worth it, and not just a simple speed bump with thunderbolt.

    hopefully soon. Still waiting for Intel to release the new CPU's.

    Either that, or ... the current Mac Pros are Teh End, and what comes next will be a different form-factor, non-Xeon CPUs, and something altogether different. There will be much ranting, and eventually everybody will get over it, and get on with things.

    It's a beautiful workstation, but I am strongly getting the feeling that it's over, and the new rackable "xMac" will not augment Apple's hardware lineup, but rather replace the Mac Pro altogether.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    tbh I wouldn't expect new MP's until Intel announces availability on the new processors... :)

    I seriously doubt that Apple would get rid of MP -lineup, they are perfect as workstations for music, image and movie -creation/editing aswell as general workhorses.

    I do hope though that they release a tower-based "Mac Pro" -style but more along the lines of the same performance as the high-end iMac to accomodate those of us who want a Mac but also be able to game on it aswell as do easy upgrading/having lots of storage.

    Any upgrade that  releases will hopefully be a really convincing one. Without costing an arm, leg and torso.

    8X SATA III (or IV) ports, multiple thunderbolt ports, really powerful GPU options.. a real powerhouse workstation upgrade.

    Hoping  will put some focus back on the Mac Pro line rather than dissolving it
