    I've seen several letters prior to the MP when referring to a Mac Pro I assume these are model or manufacture prefixes but I'm not sure and have no ides what the characters stand for can some point me to the listing?

    nMP = "New" Mac Pro i.e the 2013 cylinder model, model number 6,1
    cMP = "Classic" Mac Pro i.e the model from 2006 - 2012, the tower desktop, model numbers ranging from 1,1 to 5,1

    cMP= cheese grater Mac Pro. Because all the ventilation holes in the aluminium chassis sort of resemble a cheese grater.

    I think that it's because many cheese graters have looped handles with holes for grating cheese.

    Without the handles, no way that one could call it a "cheese grater".
