    So, this is coming in December. Link here.

    New design, blah blah, silly price, yadda yadda. But has anyone seen how tiny this thing is?!? 16.7 x 25.1 cm. Pretty amazing.

    Yeah, its pretty amazing considering that Powermacs/Mac Pros previously weighed as much as a small family car.

    Thread title checks out. You may continue.

    "The new" is superfluous.

    Splendid discussion.

    Anyway, I wonder how upgradeable they'll be down the line. I'm guessing not very, unfortunately.

    Still, I really want one, if only to take apart and wallow in.

    The teardown i watched showed it had a bespoke graphics card in it (for the form factor) so no ebuyer off the peg upgrades/replacements for that.

    Same with the HDD. The only user replaceable or upgradable thing is the RAM.

    There are a billion thunderbolt ports, so they clearly expect you to use those for storage and whatnot.

    What's amazing is the number of actual professionals who will go out and buy these overpriced/underspecced toys, rather than listening to world-renowned experts on Internet forums such as this. Obviously a machine that is almost exclusively going to be bought by professionals can't be for them, so what on earth is going on?

    It baffles me.

    Seriously, no one gives a shit about anything you have to say. Its all been said a million times before. Save yourself some time and just know we have heard everything you have said or will say in a thousand other threads, you deeply unoriginal twatbastard.

    How do you know he isn't into CAD/modelling/scientific calculations, professional video editing?

    Why? Xeon based computers are for heavy CAD/modelling/scientific calculations, professional video editing.
    no shit. Heres another tip for the nice people in this thread: the sky is blue

    Probably because he's projecting his own ignorance onto the rest of us. :-P
  • Deleted user 23 October 2013 17:41:21
    Or because it means it can all be cooled with one fan.

    The shape is honestly a genuine innovation. I guarantee the PCs you seem to think are so superior will all be following suit soon enough.

    Judging by your posting history, being a cocksucker in apple threads is going to be one of your 'things', isnt it?
  • Deleted user 23 October 2013 17:48:33
    Presumably you also have an equivalent powered PC with no power brick as well?

    It's such a shame when these threads come along and it gets reduced to a slanging match. Perhaps the OP should always create a 'teh Macs r shit' thread at the same time to draw the morons away and we can have a sensible chat in the other.

    I like the look of it. I'd probably get one if I could sell my current 13" MacBook Pro without the hassle of fleaBay or the like.

    Stealth "MacBook Pro for sale post" etc...
