    If they'll be using new CPUs etc, and moving to Gainestown - they'll have changed the internal design. And the external is likely to have a change too - The new internal revisions will be decent, so wouldn't you expect a decent change to the previous external case?

    But arent two models very little for a new MPro design internally and externally?

    I'm not sure what you are saying here. But it seems likely they will be forced to redeign the internals and there is no better opportunity to spark some interest with an external redesign.

    Hope not. That'd ding the resale value for my machine.

    Only saying that those 2 models
    MAC PRO 2.26_8CX/6X1G/640/GT120/SD-USA
    MAC PRO 2.66QCX/3X1GB/640/GT120/SD-USA
    dont seem enough to be a new MPro line, they only seem as minor update. If there was a new MPro line then shouldn they be around 3 new models to say the least?

    Technically there's only one model right now, with just a buttload of options.

    Exactly. They have one model and three (or four) standard configurations of that model. You can then customise them to how you want.
