“Even now, a whole week later, most of the opinions seem to be loving rather than hating the Mac Pro,” Haslam reports. “For now the new Mac Pro is worthy of its praise. On paper – and right now that’s the only place you are going to see it – the Mac Pro is one hell of a machine.”
Haslam reports, “Larry Jordan shares his thoughts on the new Mac Pro in his blog… ‘One of the key things I realized was that this system is envisioned to be highly configurable,’ he writes. ‘The current Mac Pro is the most customizable system that Apple makes. Configuration is at the heart of the new Mac Pro as well. While I expect that there will be one physical unit, we will have a lot of choices about what goes into that unit,’ he adds… Incidentally, according to Jordon’s blog, 80% of Mac Pro users don’t have any PCI cards in their system, aside from the graphics card. Perhaps the fuss about expansion options is fuss over nothing.”
The next generation Mac Pro will be available later this year. To learn more, visit www.apple.com/mac-pro.
