    Well, maybe this means that the next Mac Pro will have an HDMI cable too.:p

    Wouldnt a price drop suggest that the update was a long way off?

    The rumor all along is that the hexacore Xeons would not be available until late June. Still time left. I think the fact that Apple redesigned and released the Mac Mini in the midst of iPhone mania bodes well for a new Mac Pro in the next couple to few weeks.

    well its all speculation from here, no MacPro release but a MacMini release could mean a few things:

    1. CPU intel shortage as said before.
    2. MacPro is a long way from being ready, but i'm guessing there will be a new design, we can be pretty sure about that i think since they gave the MacMini a new makeover, MacPro might be a bit smaller in size.
    3. The French rumor that MP' isn't going to be released untill the end of september - October.
    4. There is just not going to be a MacPro update in 2010.

    The hub of stupidity
    This has continually been proven false. The parts are available, it's Apple's move.

    I for one have been among the doubters about Apple's intentions for the amc pro but with this 'silent' update i have som erenewed hope...

    I think that the Mac Pro will see a 'silent' update in the coming weeks.

    Good news

    At least this confirms that Apple still cares about Macs, even a "headless" desktop Mac – albeit a tiny one. Anything that sustains/expands the universe of machines running the MacOS is a good thing for Mac Pro users (current or prospective). Not every new or updated product runs the iOS. And it shows that there are active engineering teams at Apple not solely devoted to creating portable devices.

    It also demonstrates that Apple will continue to release low-profile products (ones without lots of "magic" buzz flying around them) silently, without fanfare, without regard to any specific public event. They'll hit the Apple Store when they're ready to ship – no sooner, no later – even in the middle of the latest iPhone, iPad or iWhatever launch.

    So yeah, the wait for the new MP is a pain, but I think this helps to show that we're getting there.

    The waiting times for a Mac Pro update are getting out of hand. Simply put, it's ridiculous. They better have great options when they're released... especially in the GPU sector.

    the question is not if Apple is still continuing or interested in releasing a new MacPro. without a doubt there is ofcourse going to be a new MP in the future...the question is "
    When" will we be seeing a new MP, and when will Apple be a bit more customer friendly and stop being so damned paranoid when it comes to official statements on upcoming releases. Its not as if Apple is still the major player when it comes to Computers...everybody knows Macs are far behind the competition...really far, one would think Apple would try to secure there position by being a bit more straight to the point instead of having customers frustrated because they can not plan very expensive purchases or have customers hijacked because they couldn't leave the platform if they wished to because of software investments...nothing left to do but wait and look out for an update that is most likely going to be a rip off anyway. Look at the MacMini "upgrade" it coasts 1150Euro's:eek: ...keep it up Apple your only destroying your own business, in 5 years from now these silly out of control prices and minor upgrades aren't going to cut it, heck at this pace in 5 years from now i expect Macs to still run on 2013 technology.

    To be honost Apple should just focus on Itoys instead of computers for pro's, i think its proven that the only thing Pro in a Mac Pro or Macbook Pro is the word "Pro", by today's standards all these machines are pretty much basic setups.

    ... Why would they change their business model if it clearly works. Their stock has never been higher and they have never sold more units before. Your logic falls completely against any business reason.

    Apple keeps their lips tight as part of their selling strategy. People obsess over the idea of a new product coming out that when apple finally does release it, everyone and their mother pulls the trigger on impulse. Honestly though, it works and it works well.

    And no, Apple usually doesn't have the absolute fastest or biggest anything. But, this also means they don't see the falling out when the latest or greatest has bugs or problems. Their build quality is top notch it almost everything they make is pleasing aesthetically.

    The reason prosumers stick with Apple despite their shortcomings is sheer lack of competition. Apple makes a superior software product in OSX (more debatable now that Win7 is here). They don't use cheap plastics or poor engineering in their products which means I can count on my machine to last me. This idea in the general personal computer industry is unused. Most companies but apple product a product at absolute bottom dollar with razor thin margins. However quality suffers because of this and creates poor customer interactions with the product stamped with their name all over it. Make it right the first time and if it takes a little more, charge a little more. In the end people will be happier and much more loyal; this is the focus Apple has used for years and will for the foreseeable future.

    Time, because it rules EVERYTHING!
    Here's a more accurate way to look at it. Mini updated, Mac Pro NEXT. :rolleyes:

    The way things are going, the Air, TV, imac and usb cables will get upgrades before the MP. I've officially lost all hope for a summer update. In any case it's just as well they didn't go live today because the store is impossible to get an order through right now because of the iphone pre-orders.

    I think its a good thing they updated mini; it shows that just because no mac were shown at WWDC, it does not mean it's not far away. This means that the game is still going, and next tuesday could be it.

    I have a feeling the iMac is next before the Mac Pro.

    it clearly doesn't work, look at the last year Apple is getting more and more negative feedback from customer, especially on the updates. the way apple is doing business is just ripping people off. I could tell you a few stories about Apples ridiculous policy's and way of doing business but i'm sure they are very easy to find surfing the web.

    The only reason Apple is selling so much is because its a hype, point blank. it has nothing to do with providing the best quality there is for customers or best customer care. the thing with hypes is that they don't last that long.

    Looks as if 80% of Apples customers got there head up Jobs *$s

    What a load of crap, next your going to tell me Macs are bug free? I had my fair share of crashes and bugs with mac computers as-well as windows systems. the "Mac is the best" is getting old.

    i got to agree that everything they make is pleasing aesthetically...but what good is a Ferrari with a Toyota engine, In other words, why would you by something that looks good but lacks performance, especially when your paying an extreme lot of money for it.

    Oh God, car metaphors already?

    In any case, I think this is good news. It shows Apple is not only still interested, but HOLY &%*$*% %&^* the new Mini has an awesome case! I'm really looking forward to the MP update now. Just gonna be another few weeks.

    Each person has their own experiences with a Mac...

    My iMac was recently crashing (good ol' kernel panics) but I bothered to read the error log after the 5th crash (heheh) and it was a 3rd party driver. Got no problems now.

    Also.. this supposed increase of complaints/negative feedback from customers. Well, I don't think this is unusual at all. With an increase in sales of Apple hardware, it would be in fact weird if there was no increase of negative feedback.
