I'll start this post by telling everyone to laugh at me.

My tower died last November. I did not initially buy one cause I had a 2008ish Imac that my wife used, which I can work on. Besides new towers were coming out in Feb of 2012 so I should wait. Ha.

Wait all the way to Macworld then am totally let down.
Decide to buy a new IMac only to find that an update must be around the corner. Ugh that was months ago, and I stopped following the MacPro feed.

Tonight I find out that the new IMacs will not be announced tomorrow. So if no new IMac happens in 2012 should I then wait again for the Pros? Sounds insane. Is there any news? Would it be Feb or Macworld or next fall. As if anyone knows. i guess Cook did say "Late 2013" right?

Moral of story... When your work machine dies you buy a new one right away. No matter what the RUMORS say. I could have had a dual hex core for the last year. I'm stupid. Mind you the IMac has held up well, except for 3D renders but that is asking too much from this machine.

Late 2013 is UNSAT in my opinion.
There is no reason why they can't produce a powerhouse similar to the HP z8something.

Well someone fed you a huge bucket of hooey on that one. You can pile that on top of the rest.

Late ( end Q4 / early Q4 ) 2013 is probably another bucket of hooey on the Mac Pro.
