In an attempt to revive its flagging reputation for introducing innovative products, Apple unveiled a new Mac Pro at its World Wide Developers Conference, being held in San Francisco this week. "Can't innovate any more, my ass," said SVP of Product Marketing Phil Schiller as the Mac Pro made its debut. The futuristic-looking black cylindrical device stands less than 10 inches tall and offers 7 TFlops of computing power using state-of-the-art technology.
Still, it can't be said that the Mac Pro was a showstopper.

I will absolutely buy the new Mac Pro. I'm a pro user working from home, and I've been waiting for this machine for quite a while. The power of a Mac Pro in a small package - perfect for my home office's small space!

The lack of expandability is a problem? Good grief..... That's like saying the new Mac Pro is a flop because it doesn't have a display.

Just because additional drives and devices don't fit INSIDE the box doesn't mean it isn't expandable. It is infinitely expandable through super fast interfaces.

I expect to add a couple of nice 4K displays and a bank of drives for my video work. Expansion is the last worry of the educated Mac Pro consumer.

OH...look, It's the Mac Mini ver 2.0, and judging from It's shape and size just as upgradeable(sigh).
I'm just not a fan of ultra small desktops like this, never could think of a "real" use for one considering the limitations.
I'm sure a lot of people will be "this Is perfect".
Just not me
