    It's not even a new Mac Pro.

    It's the 2010 Mac Pro with 133Mhz faster CPU and lower prices

    If you needed a new Mac Pro a year and a half ago, why didn't you buy a Mac Pro a year and a half ago?

    A year and a half ago the Mac Pro was a good computer.

    The update is terrible, I agree. But whining about a wait for a year and a half is just ridiculous. I needed a new Mac Pro a year and a half ago, and I bought it. It's still a very powerful computer, and with upgrades I'll make it last for at least 3-4 more years. At least.

    I don't know what would have been worse, not updating the MP, or this.

    At least Apple could have put a 6 core in the entry model....correct me if I´m wrong but it is still west mere CPU´s...they came 2009.

    It would have been better if they had scrapped it.
    I'm off to spec up a Dell Precision!

    All the speculating that we did for the past year or so on thunderbolt, sata3, pci3 and usb3 built up all these expectations, and apple surprised us with a fist in the butthole!;)

    I'm going to wait until the new iMacs and get that instead. Upgrade sooner. OR get the new MacBook Pros and use that as my main machine.

    Mac Pro

    And not just that. For us over here it goes up in price €200 to €2,699!!. Time to reconsider what way to use Mac in future.

    I don't think the buyers guide should class this as an update...

    It really pisses me off that Apple thinks they can get away with selling this as the new mac pro. I hope some unsuspecting people don't fall for this. This is really really cruel and unusual punishment.

    ya think?

    The only thing "new" about it is the level of contempt Apple is willing to show its professional user base.

    PATHETIC.

    Maybe he was waiting for non-CPU updates, like USB 3.0, TB, or SATA3?
