    Apple unveils new Cylindrical Macbook


    Hi there
    I'm not sure if the market will really take to a top of the range MacBook with yet even MORE processing power -- OK some people will buy it - like some people will always buy a Ferrari - but I can't see this as being any more than a niche product.

    The machine though does look absolutely Stunning -- in my younger days I would have certainly opeted for one.

    Can't give you any pics unfortunately but read the article. The reference to the PC is in the article.

    While this stuff is great I don't think it will save Apple's bacon though. Their radio service also seems a bit pointless -- there's zillions of free stations already -- just use things like Tunein --works on computers, phones, tablets etc and is 100% FREE.

    Cheers

    It looks staggering. It is a statement that they are the best.

    z3 will want one of those.

    Wait till you see what Tim comes up with in October.

    The new Mac Pro looks like something you should be plugging into a starship power core.

    It is a niche product. You can get more power for a lot less $$ if you go with a Windows machine. The entry point for the previous line of Mac Pros is about $3k. I'm sure this will be the same. Artsy people seem to be the market for Mac Pro's.

    These computers are beautiful. you get a lot of polish in the hardware design. Light up I/O ports when you spin the case to plug something in and other extra design elements. I have an old G5 Mac and the build quality is amazing. It's like a watch. Tooless latches for takedown, rubber seals on the case side, laser etched disassembly instructions in the side panel, fan unit assemblies that plug in and remove with no tools or exposed wires, 3 separate fan cooling/airflow zones.

    Yeah. Video-, Photo- and music- processing can take a fair bit of power and Apple have always been strong there, even before iPhones, iPads etc.

    I didn't realize that there was anything wrong with the bacon.

    Desktop computing wise, the mac pro can't save them. It is a niche market.

    Only ios can save apple, and that's coming into question as of recent months.

    Very form over function, but that's apple for you.

    It's not terribly designed, very interesting. See, this type of thing if done on the Windows desktop PC side would have save the bacon for at least some OEMs versus recycling generic black ATX boxes for the better part of a decade.

    And which is why I build over buy. I think this month is when I'll start construction of my compulator case designed in part by Windows 8's modernist design.
