I'm a little on the fence on this machine. My first thought was, well the cube was a bad idea, why is it a good idea now?
That aside, I'm not really loving the cylindrical design. The thing is, most real pros I know, ones that want to put real $$ for a pro, don't care -that- much about cutting edge design, and certainly not one that makes it less expandable on the inside. I think, for now, that may be a bit of a mistake. Pro users will balk at having to put out more hundreds (plenty) for external chassis for cards etc. So, I'm not sold that this is a great idea.
I see a whole lotta mac guys on another mac forum really putting this machine down. I wonder what the final reaction will be.
-I- might love one, but I'm not a total video pro etc after expensive high end video cards etc. That's not exactly what I thought mac pros were for... people like me.
thunderbolt however, I love it, mainly because the 2 I have, can be whatever port I like (with an adapter if needed) I love the expandability and options thunderbolt has. I think, it may be here to stay, but just faster generations that are backwards compatible.
