MacScoop is reporting that an 8-core Mac Pro is currently due for a January release. MacScoop also reports that a 4-core configuration may remain in Apple’s lineup at a lower price point.
“Apple hasn’t made any major update to the Cinema Displays since their initial release in June 2004,” Alexandros Roussos reports for MacScoop. “As reported by MacScoop a few days ago, the next generation of Apple Cinema Displays could feature a built-in iSight, HDMI connectivity as well as support for HDCP. New sizes could appear in the line-up: the 23 inch model may be replaced by a 24 inch one while a larger model may broaden the line-up.”
