The poll made by this forum regarding the MacPros new design wasnt giving enough options, so here is my prospective!

Keep the same size, weight, style and material, just add a few more USB/Firewire ports and maybe a memory card reader. Do this, and I'll be happy :cool:

I think that #3 is the best option. I love the look of the Power Mac G5's case, but a few enhancements could stand to be made. :)

Give me something new to look at! So far everything looks pretty much the same this year, so I doubt they'll actually change anything this year. I get the impression Apple are doing the transition in 2 stages. First move the new chips in and then next year start redesigning everything. I suppose it helps with transitions such as this due to product familiarity.

I voted for a change in G5's casing, though it doesn't matter as I'll never get (read: be able to afford) one...

Heh, I'm suddenly reminded of the chaos following WWDC '03.
"Cheese Graters??!?"
"G5's are fugly!"

Apple is brainwashing us... :rolleyes:

I went with keeping the good old G5 look. I don't know how Apple can really make it any better on the outside, they would really have to shock me.
I dont know about that, to tell you the truth apple keeps surprising us, still i voted for 3 too only because i havent satiated yet with the G5model and not thati dont believe that apple can give something new better/nicer!

I was just looking at my QuickSilver G4 the other day and thinking how beautiful it really is. On the other-hand, I always like the idea of something newer and cooler that hasn't been thought of yet.

I really hope Apple blow us away with something new with an unbelievable cool and sensible design. I never really liked the look of the Power Mac G5s. How about a cross between the Power Mac G3 "smurfbox" or the Power Mac G4 and the Mac mini with easy user friendly access for replacing all vital parts?

Every generation they have made significant changes, so they should continue that trend.
However, on the other hand- the design of the iMac didn't change from the G5 to the Intel...

I voted something from scratch... but I still want it to be alluminum. I agree with the more USB. (4+) Firewire 400 (2) and a Fireewire 800 (1). cards slots would be nice but not all of them... just the most common. (MiniSD/Sony and CF Card would be good.) I like the "holes" in the front... something smaller and lighter would be good.
