I've been considering a mac pro since November. This would be my first Mac, and really the only one I was willing to consider, as I already have a monitor and the mini doesn't have enough power for me. The more I read about Nehalem doing away with the FSB and all the other changes, I think it'll be worth waiting for. I can't really justify dropping 3,000 dollars on a 2.8 quad core with a FSB, 8800GT and slightly faster memory. I know the current (and even previous) Mac Pro are great machines, but the improvements just aren't worth it for me. I remember mocking the people who are "perpetually waiting" and now I've officially become one. I plan on buying the sub-notebook after MWSF or a MBP to tide me over in the mean time. Nehalem will be the biggest advancement from Intel since the Pentium. I'd rather be on the cutting edge of the next technology than on the final version of the current (FSB) technology. Hopefully they'll have Nehalem out around November. But if I have to wait another year, so be it.
