    Well true. They do have a nice design there. Would like to see a PC similar.

    Bear in mind, I like the design, but seriously who wants a cool looking tower that has all kinds of crap dangling off it. To expand you hang crap from the thunderbolt plugs. Wow... so innovative... not.

    Actually, the Mac Pro will be assembled in the United States. (The underlying components, of course, probably come from the same factories all other PC components do, in Taiwan or China.)

    It does have some nice originality about but I do think it looks like an office bin or something :/

    Why do You think they are going to send incomplete and overheating product to the production line? I think everything is tested and proven to work nicely :) I am not really an apple fan, but I think it's impressive to cram this much power to small package like this :)

    Its a nice looking thing, but I'm not a big fan of CrApple stuff myself, so just let the fan boys defend it or cry if it turns out to be a firey hot turd.

    And the only thing Apple leads the way in is overpriced overhyped turkey poo.

    Cant wait to see the hiked price of accesories for this, it'll be $50 for a thunderbolt cable no doubt.

    Nice product. I have to say just wow when looking at this heat transfer set up. Excellent engineering.

    If this thing runs half as good as the Apple "Cube" we are in for a treat. :laugh:

    Not sure why everyone is saying this is "new". So they went from small square to small round. OMG APPLE DISCOVERED A NEW GEOMETRIC SHAPE! SO REAL!

    You honestly troll every Apple thread trying to bait others in to arguing or agreeing or thanking you.

    It was new with the Cube. This isn't a big deal. They have done this with laptops for years. Sorry.
    I'm sorry you cannot take torpedo's of truth.

    No I just can't appreciate trolls like you. :slap:

    Say something useful for a change. Try giving us actual reasoning and opinion rather than OMG APPLE DISCOVERED A NEW GEOMETRIC SHAPE! "SO REAL!"... I mean honestly it's a waste of forum database.

    This is just the Cube.....but round. Just pointing out people are getting excited about a new shape not a new idea. Also I don't like being called names.

    People who cannot make valid points call other people names. Glad to see I'm right.

    Yeah, they take risks by ripping off the flat Metro theme design of Windows Phone. :rolleyes:

    Because Apple products literally have a history of heating up like ovens due to Jobs' love of silence. The fans in laptops would be intentionally restricted from running full bore just to keep them quiet. The thermal plates and copper piping were limited in the notebooks as well to cut down on the space they took up. Apple's entire product portfolio is about form over function and the thermals in their computers pay for it. The only thing that has saved them over the years is Intel's excellent node reduction.

    the cube did not have a quarter of the processing/gpu power in it that this new unit does...

    the cube also did not have a brand new cooling design not seen in a desktop before...

    I'm sorry but at the time the Cube debuted it was cutting edge. This is just an updated Cube man.
