updated mac pro and xserves
for the day-to-day user, myself included these days, these machines ROCK and are serious overkill. 8-cores (essentially 8 processors), gobs of ram, 3 terabytes of internal storage! all starting around $3000.
photo, video or graphic professionals – this could pay for itself VERY quickly, but for you or me, browsing the web, checking email and the occasional video or audio file – it would be very hard to justify.
keep your ears peeled for the “consumer” announcements next week at macword. new laptops, updates to iPhones, tweaked iMacs… we shall see!
