I'm German, and have a bit of a problem . The original MacPro has not been for sale in Europe for about a year, and can't be purchased new any longer. As the owner of an MP 3.1, this puts me in a tough spot . I can keep my old MP, hoping it won't break down anytime soon, get a used 4.1/5.1, or buy the nMP plus a bunch of dongles, hubs and a couple of drive enclosures . Which might or might not work properly - the nMP doesn't seem quite ready yet, and will take a year or two to figure whether it is a suitable replacement , mainly due to the unknown capabilty and usabilty of USB 3.0 on the Mac, of TB in general, and the questionable quality and design of OSX Lion and its successors . As a matter of fact, it appears that both TB and USB 3.0 have never been a solid and mainstream replacement of FW/USB 2.0 on any Mac as of now . Hence, I'm wondering what my fellow Euro MacPro users are considering right now, when the nMP is the only new MacPro one can buy over here .
