http://www.apcstart.com/site/ndavis/2006/08/1131/wake-up-quad-core-is-overkill Who is this guy? I read his piece on "Macs too hip for PC users?" and wasn't impressed. So I started to look at his past articles. This one struck me because I am buying a MacPro desktop unit when the second generation comes out. Read it for yourself, he bashes the whole concept of having an quad core setup. Sure most software today doesn't take advantage of multiple cores or cpus, but what about tomorrow's software? The old saying, you can never have enough computing power still holds true. He essentially is saying you don't need this. An analogy to this is like saying you don't need that larger engine in your car or truck. BS, if I need that power, it is there and just knowing I can tap into it, is comforting.
