You may be surprised. Instead of yanking your chain, they might just yank the hydrant away from you, leaving you pissing against the wind :D

Being as PCs already have i3, i5 and i7 laptops, $1000 i7 desktops, USB 3 is starting to show up and they've been Blu-Ray capable for a while now... the next level must be something out of this world.

It's not like the ever innovative Apple to merely play catch-up. ;)

They need to get back to iFundmentals.

Well duh its going to be "the next level". It wouldn't be an update if they used the same old hardware like a DVD burner for 9 years, oh wait, they have.

Nope, you're all wrong. Apple are "going to the next level" by completely eliminating the slowest, most error-prone, and silliest part of the system ... the user! ;)

Apple Store down

Usually, I feel like "Store down" posts are reserved to iMacs, Mac Minis, and Macbooks, but it does look like the store is indeed down. Since I and many others here are itching for the 2010 Pros, I wonder if this could be it?

Edit: Actually, I'm now guessing this is probably nothing more than the occasional scheduled Sunday night maintenance. :(

I believe he is talking about the consumer products.

What to expect from the Mac Pro is not harder than looking at Intel's roadmap.

Yea just like the iPad "revolutionalized the industry" right?

sorry, but I'm starting to lose faith in Apple at this point. I don't know how a multi-billion dollar company can NOT listen to their consumers and put out such a poor product like the iPad.

"New Macs for 2010 are going to take Apple to the next level – Blu-Ray software is a mess, and Apple will wait until sales really start to take off before implementing it."

Perhaps Blu-Ray won't be implemented into the Mac in the next update if this is the still the current mood. The problem is that many media professionals, including myself, need Blu-Ray capabilities for our customers. The workaround and restrictions in hardware and software that exists at the moment is limiting. The drive towards streaming and downloads for revenue generation doesn't really help video producers who need all the tools to hand.

Yes. The next macs will not function with a keyboard and mouse.

Instead they will just open programs and perform random functions the computer deems "interesting" to show off how awesome macs are. All this will be done Oh-tomatically, as Jobs would say.

It better be more than that, at least if they expect to win back some of the pros they lost in recent months.
Why? Every other workstation will get the same. It is no secret.

They could surprise us with an early integration of the Light Peak technology.

What didn't you like about it when you tried it? Oh, hang on, you're just someone on the internet having a go about something that you haven't used. I see...

Yep. All they need to do is update the firmware to incorporate the new microcode. Cheap and easy. For Apple. For the user, the system will be the same otherwise, and have the same issues (direct hardware such as DIMM slot count,..., not necessarly those that are a result of OS X in its current form).

It better be more than that, at least if they expect to win back some of the pros they lost in recent months.
Highly doubtful there will be new features to the hardware IMO, given Apple's lack of interest (i.e. audio thread, where smacman was threatened with the loss of warranty support if he continued to persue the issue, especially outside of Apple). Other users have been given the brush-off. :( :mad:

Parts for LP aren't expected until Q4 2010, so unless Apple waits to release say December 2010 and LP is completely on schedule, not going to happen. :eek: :p

For CPUs yes...

but the RAM slots are wack, six 1GB sticks of RAM is wack, no USB3 would be wack, for the money the hard drives should be closer to the largest available, the video card options are wack... the CPU options (at least as priced) were a little wack...
