    Are you going to buy the new Mac Pro once it becomes available? Is cost a huge factor for you? Or do you even care? So many questions I have to ask the community about this one! lol

    ​It's an intriguing new design for sure. Just not sure if I'd actually pull the trigger on one.

    Yep, should be a pricey beast. No surprises there!

    I will be getting the lowest end one, taking it and placing on a table in my living room and never turning on. I will tell people it's some new wave art piece I paid load for.

    I bought my first Mac Book Pro last year. I love it. I am going to skip this year, mostly for the cost. I bought the iPhone 5S and may grab the new iPad Mini, depending on the new features. There won't be funds left for the MBP.

    It seems like the beast machine... but I really don’t have the need... one of the few Apple products that I don’t own.

    Agreed. Need 'probably' isn't there for me either... although, it would be fun to use

    ​I wonder if graphics and video professionals will end up preferring the previous generation to the new Mac Pro.

    Yep. I seem to have a "need" to have at least one of all Apple products, but I can justify this one.

    I was all for it during the summer. I'm going to make my final decision after the announcement on the 22nd of this month.

    Yknow, I don't know yet. Next year I am getting a new machine and had really planned for the most maxed out laptop version they have, but that Pro is kind of alluring in the specs department. I don't personally know how I feel about the design yet....I kinda like my aluminum.

    You all do realize that this thread is about the new 'trash can' model of the Mac Pro desktop computer and NOT the new MacBook Pro laptops, right?

    Are you going to buy the new Mac Pro?-k-bigpic.jpg

    Are you speaking to me? What about my post made you believe I was not aware of the topic? The fact that I said that I had PLANNED to get a laptop instead of a desktop next time around, but that the Pro was alluring enough to make me reconsider? Was that confusing?

    Looks wise, I don't love-love the new look. But the available POWER is what is appealing, because ripping through some of the files (sizewise) I need to build, save, tinker with...it will be a blink comparatively. I just wish they would put THAT kinda rig in a laptop. But that laptop would cause 3rd degree burns from the heat it would generate.

    With how good the iPhones are now days I see no need for a new laptop at the moment

    No need for it and purchasing it would be grounds for divorce, I'm saving for a 27" imac though..

    Not you... just several of the posts seem to sound like they’re talking about the MBP...

    HAH! Thankfully I have no issues in that department, we alternate who gets a new rig when, and I skipped my last one because I didn't need one yet and bought him and his mom their iPads instead. Since my daily driver still cranks for me just fine, I am likely going to wait til sometime next year and go laptop, but...I want POW-AH.

    Ok just clarifying. I was like "uh what!?"

    I'm due for a new desktop, but I don't even have the money for a PC let alone a Mac! I just replaced the monitor instead and wiped the hard drive on my old PC instead. It's almost like new.

    Oh man oh man would I like to. But its probably going to be wayyyy out of budget.

    Actually, the more I think about it, the more I think that I wouldn't get one. For my needs, my MacBook is fantastic, and I can't see it being replaced. As far as "desktops" go, I have a PC gaming rig, and I don't spend enough time on it either.

    I have a feel the mac pro is going to be like most Apple products... something that you absolutely do not NEED, but you WANT so much lol

    I really want one but I think that is the allure of the beautiful products Apple makes. I had the same feeling when the new iMacs were out and I still don't have one of those. There are so many computers in my house plus the fact I just got a Mid 2012 RMBP there is no way I could buy this unless I won the lottery. Well I could buy it I just couldn't bring it home lol my wife would just give me a cold stare and I'd know better and take it back. It's fun to dream though I'd love to have one but even in my dreams I don't have anything to really justify having this and I'd get a 27" iMac instead.

    No thanks. Bought a used Mac Pro desktop and saved a bundle of cash. My Mac Pro has this thing called "internal expansion", that the R2D2 edition Mac Pro will not have. Perhaps I'll reconsider the R2D2 edition, when I get rich. That won't be today.
