So, the current state is strange. Refresh is to be expected since Intel moved to v3. Still, not yet. I'm currently on rMBP from 2012 and my workflow asks for more ram and more speed so I'm on the verge of going for 6-core 32 gig, 1tb d500 machine or a custom x99 with 5960x 32 gigs and m2 drive for half the price almost. I love the form factor of Mac Pro, silence... and hate giant PC cases required for custom solutions and hackintoshes. Still, the price diff. is huge. I do mostly development and some 3D work. Not sure how are others' experiences with the best feature of Mac Pro cilinder: silence, cool, small and stable. Is it worth the price diff.?
