After years of silence Apple finally publicly said it is rethinking and remaking its flagship desktop device.
This is so long overdue many pro users have jumped to Windows (or Hackintosh) and still may considering this new box is a year away. The long silence may explain some internal infighting over the fate of the Trashcan design and an admittance of its design over function issues. This is a great step forward and hoping they actually make a modular, custom configurable professional tool for people who actually need and use them. Oh yeah, there's a monitor coming too. Also, new iMac and Mac Mini hardware models are in the pipeline. Nice to see Apple being a computer company again.“We are completely rethinking the Mac Pro,” Phil Schiller, Apple’s SVP of worldwide marketing said during a recent roundtable with a handful of reporters at the company’s Machine Shop hardware prototyping lab. And it won't just be the computer. “Since the Mac Pro is a modular system, we are also doing a pro display. There’s a team working hard on it right now.”
