    Wonder what their Mac Pro is going to look like this time. Lets hope it is a big departure from the trashintosh of 2013. By far, most people simply want the upgradable cheesegrater back where everything was contained instead of some modular outfit that spells spaghetti junction.

    There was a LOT of people waiting for this. Many people were collectively overjoyed when they saw the shiny new Mac Pro, and heard the potential of how upgradable it was .... until they heard the price for the base specs.

    6 grand for a miserly 8 core, 256GBs SSD, 32GB RAM w underwhelming graphics. :eek: This has seriously turned away what could have been a big user base, and instead has catered for the extreme high end. Lot of ticked off people about Apples endless obscene prices.

    Words just fail me about that 1000$ stand. Oh wait, 999$.

    Looks like they won't be selling too many of them stands. I'm just glad I got a good deal on my 27 inch Mac that will last me the rest of my life. :)

    If Apple gave you that good deal, count yourself EXTREMELY fortunate and in a very select class few will ever get to be in, the way Tim Cook is going.
    LOL heard about this but didn't see it. Tim Cook you've shot yourself in the foot.
