It's been a long long wait.....
I still think it's gonna be a long wait
Skywalker, These aren't the PC's you're looking for...
Its still November here -- LOL
In my time zone, that statement is true for less than six hours....
i bet we see it this Tuesday!
I hope you win that bet.
That's not the quote you're looking for...
ahaha, you and many others i suppose. TBH i only want it sooner so i can see if they release a mini at the same time
nMP is too rich for my non-"pro" needs though would love to have one of those in the living room running my LED TV purely for bragging rights and aesthetics (yes i am one of the apparently few that really like the new design)...
You're not alone. I love the new design.
especially in comparison with the old one... that thing was enormous. Not something to put on a desk that's for sure... rather hide it away under the table so no one can see it.. the new one thought is all peacocky...
It's going to be released on the 32nd of December...
Hell yeah the new design is sick! It's just some of the sacrifices made to have the sick design that some dislike.
I just want to see the config options
I lost patience and ordered a 2.6 i7 Mac Mini with the fusion drive. I want to use it with Vienna Ensemble Pro 5 which is the gold standard for audio/midi but it's routing application did a hard crash on the Mac Mini. That's like a hard crash with Logic Pro X!
I can only surmise that SJ spirit has intervened and so I'll be returning the Mac Mini and will once again wait.
It's now officially December in Cupertino but alas no Mac Pro's for sale...
It was never going to be December 1st. That would have been far too UNcryptic for Apple.
You think we have to wait 23 days more?!
Feeling childish right now..
- they are announced/ go live on store: december 20th
- delivery time will be 2-3 weeks
- delivery time is lenghtened to 4-6 weeks because of "production hiccups"
- the first customers receive their nMP around Feb 1st, 2014
As much as I'd like one, I'll build a PC before I wait til Feb. for something that was supposed to be available in the Fall. Apple can wait until the last day in Fall and be pompous, but waiting until Feb. with no warning is being a jerk to those waiting.
It all depends on Intel. So if Intel delays the chips, nMP's will be delayed. If Intel delivers tomorrow you'd bet that Apple opens up orders tomorrow. They want to sell this thing before the new years due to tax breaks obviously.
Bah, sorry to hear that
hopefully it won't be much longer. Did you check your logs for the reason of the crash?
I find that the way Apple deals with this is straight up stupid...i get that they want to create a hype around the release but seriously...at least give people the prices of the 8 and 12 core configurations, whats with all the secrecy?
In the beginning it was kind of fun to wait for a release of a new apple product...in the case of the MP it is enough to completely be done with Apple...its just ridiculous they way the handle the MP and the customers whom rely on it.
Still On Topic
Congrats! When I got up this morning, I was thinking of starting a thread on this exact topic. I cannot wait for the MacPro to hit the shelves. I've set aside a budget for the tax year. However, if it doesn't ship prior to, then I'll use that money to purchase external TB hard drives.
My old MacPro must know it's on its way. Every week that passes, it seems to get a little bit slower.
On a pseudo-related note. I'm surprised this thread has made it this far without a single negative remark - shocking! I'm accustomed to seeing an immediate comment which typicaly blames the President, christians, conservatives, slave labor, global warming, marketing, luddites, trekkies, etc.
I feel this is gonna be the situation even though I really hope not
