I like the new Mac. It is going be very fast with the updated cpu, dual gpu, and pci-e flash storage. The pricing for the new mac pro is in line with what I spent for a dual quad 2.4 Gz xeon tower three years ago. What is missing, with the new design however, is built in, expandability of storage. Even if you max out the pci-e flash storage at 1 Tb, that is not enough for the video, music, and other files I (maybe you) keep on your computer. The "old" tower allowed for built in expansion with extra drives. Now if you want to have more drives you need to get a JBOD box. The JBOD boxes aren't easy to find, and are expensive. I don't need nor want a raid box. Anyway, that is my only complaint about the new mac pro. It appears that it is going to scream speed.
