    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.

    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
