We've created a new sub-forum, Alternatives to Mac Hardware, which can be found in the Macs category. The category has also been rearranged slightly in line with the new forum.

The Alternatives to Mac Hardware forum can be used to discuss non-Apple computers, similar to how the Alternatives to iOS and iOS Devices forum is used to discuss non-Apple phones and other devices. The Windows, Linux & Others on the Mac should continue to be used for discussion of non-Apple operating systems running on Mac hardware.

Thanks for that and great timing MR, as we current Mac Pro 1.1-5.1 users really need to discuss serious alternatives in hardware to replace - when needed - our so much beloved "cheese-graters"
