    Well the "Later than that" option is probably the mostly like one to be correct, given that the others are binned into only single weeks. However, I think of the single week intervals, the mid-late April range is where I'd put my money.

    I'm scared they may convert the Mac Pro production line for Apple TVs.

    Yes, it the highest bid + 1 strategy.

    My bet - 31st June 2012. Or February 29, 2013.

    What's the point of this poll? How can anyone give a reliable, well-informed opinion, unless they work for Apple on Mac Pros? No-one here has the foggiest idea what's going on with the release cycle, or even if they've been scrapped entirely. So it's all conjecture and guess work. Which makes this poll completely meaningless and a waste of time.

    You may as well ask "How long is a piece of string?".

    7 inches?

    No, 18 inches, and a 1/4?

    Am I right?

    Twice as long as half a piece of string. Obviously.

    Its an opinion poll, Glen. Just because you don't think there is any factual information towards answering the question in the poll, does not mean the poll is meaningless or a waste of time. It just mean that this poll gives us an idea about when people THINK the Mac Pro will be release.

    Anyway, I think you should read up on the wisdom of the crowd.

    And yes, there is information out there beyond simply having insider knowledge....

    Things to consider:
    What processors are available?
    When are new processors going to be available?
    What video cards are available?
    When are new video cards going to be available?
    What processors/video cards are in the current Mac Pro?
    What has been Apple's previous behavior given a similar set of answers to the first 5 questions?

    So you are saying the string is longer than 18 inches?

    I wouldn't be surprised if Apple holds back the Pro's release until Mountain Lion.

    This summer with Mountain Lion (optimized with Clang). No signs, that they will use the Intel compilers (ICC) or the latest LLVM/GCC version (see Xcode v4.4). They use still the same version (GCC v4.2.1 from Snow Leopard/Xcode v3.x.x).
