OK there it is! What do you think? IMO that's odd, design wise, but refreshing. Like a throwback to the old NeXT cube.

Sign me up!

I have a lot to learn now about Thunderbolt expansion options, etc. I have a Mac Pro 3,1 with a bunch of SSDs and HDDs inside. Need to figure out how to get those external in a Thunderbolt 2.0 device.

My connection cut out right as he introduced it and I came back after the intro video finished. Is all the physical storage done externally?

Well, at least they didn't kill it off. But unfortunately no internal expandability. So I hope someone makes a great expansion chassis that will take both a pile of SSD's + PCI cards. That would be OK with me.

I think its a little ugly and I'm a bit concerned about graphics (if this thing can't run an NVIDIA card I'm a little screwed) and expandability options (sounds expensive!) but I'm happy it exists at all!

I gambled and I lost. Just bought 2x Samsung SSDs thta I was hoping to transfer over to a new Mac Pro and now that isn't going to happen. Plus do we all want external everything?

Also I use Adobe's video solutions and they NEED CUDA. Having only ATI chips soldered onto the main board screws us.

That'll be an acceptable option. Agreed.
