    I think this incarnation of the Mac Pro has probably lost a bit of the tinker with it factor. It won't be as easy to do as some models have been. That bothers me but realistically in all the years I've owned G5 and Mac Pros cases I've only installed one card, extra memory, and an internal hard drives. This form factor might be a bigger issue for pros,

    @Dennis Thanks for that link it got me up to speed on the info that I missed. I wonder how effective the cooling will be? This idea seems strangely reminiscent of the Cube

    What the heck...why didn't they name the new OS 10.9 "Yreka"??

    Yreka is also in Northern, California...and we know who is infamously from there!!!

    Same experience here. I'm thinking many Mac Pro users (up to this point mainly) purchased Mac Pro's for three reasons:

    - lots of cpu cores
    - ability to run multiple monitors
    - lots of ram

    Sounds like the new Mac Pro address's all of these.

    Of course I'm also sure there are Mac Pro users who have maxed things out...and liked having four separate HD bay's.

    From all the pics I have seen it looks like the Retina MBP in the sense of RAM is part of the board and you are stuck with whatever you purchase. Time will tell for sure.

    Glad I'm not the only one who saw the new Pro & thought Apple had resurrected the concept of the "G4 Cube" as the "Xeon Tube"
    For my purposes as an engineering undergraduate; Windows is respectable (& generally necessary), Linux is admirable (& often useful), OS X is enjoyable (& requires no further justification, although plenty could be given)!

    I figured they could've gone the way of native plants of California...or native species of California...

    What's next, OS XI "Malibu"?

    I was looking at the keynote earlier today and in between bouts of the video acting up I got a look at the tagging features. This is kinda what i had in mind a while ago when writing about how to make Smart Folders more useful.

    First, how about an easy way to add metadata when a file is saved—from right within the Save dialog? Just think how useful smart folders would be if everything on your Mac were tagged with the appropriate metadata.

    If you are interested see this column from March 2010

    Don't worry about the metadata Sly, the NSA is storing it all up for you!

    I think that's the flash drive. There are four 'standard' ram slots, two on each side mounted vertically.

    edit: looking at this pic it looks like the flash storage is removable too.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Think I must be getting old.

    Love the fact that you get the menu bar and the dock on each screen.
    Even just 10 yrs ago, I would have been excited / waiting with aniticipation to get my hands on all the new features.
    Now I'm just thinking, do I really want to have to learn how to use all this new stuff?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
