Seriously.. Apple Pi**ing on you? Slapping you? Bailing on you? Your machine was working for you yesterday wasn't it? Shoot..... I've done major label work on G5's lately.... my 8 Core 1,1 is solid for my work...... Blockbuster movies are still being scored on MP's from '2010', films, effects, and other work. If you all of a sudden CANNOT operate because Apple hasn't offered up a newer machine, then maybe you need to be better at what you use it for. Good lord. Good thing I'm not a moderator wouldn't be many posts from today Cheer up! Your Mac Pro is still a beast! And for now, it's still holding as good a value, if not better, than it was yesterday!
