It's named after a big wave surfing spot in Northern California!That Mac Pro -- it's a cylinder! :smile: Very, very interesting. I wonder what the pricing structure will be?
I, too, was surprised that there was no mention of the iPhone, but I noticed that when they were showing the new iOS 7 that it appears to have the lock screen button right ON the interface so I'm wondering if they're planning to remove the physical home button?
I'm not particularly thrilled with the name they're giving the new OS X, though. "Mavericks?" Someone probably thought that was very clever, but I'll bet they get a lot of critical feedback about that. I think I would've preferred "Sea Lion." LOL!!!
This wasn't an iPhone hardware event. There wasn't an expectation of announcing a new phone. iPhones have had their own press events.Was it wrong of me to be disappointed by the lack of an iPhone update? Need to replace my old, badly fractured v4. Trying to wait it out, but it's starting to get difficult...

I have to admit, unless I see compelling justification for the black can, I will most likely go with a current Mac Pro...being chained to Thunderbolt doesn't give me a warm feelingTo me it looks pretty uninteresting. Mac Mini with souped up processors and a Darth Vader skin. It appears that there is zero internal expansion (except memory, presumably). Simply an extension Apple's all-Thunderbolt-all-the-time meme. Getting the same storage config as my old Mac Pro would involve at least two external enclosures and about 2.5 times the cost. No thanks.
I'll be sticking with my Mini for now and probably will be shopping for a PC or perhaps a current-gen Mac Pro from the refurb store.
my guess is LOTS of $, but I hope I'm wrong....complete redesign of a lower volume niche product is not going to be an attractive model, IMO........upon further consideration, with its Firewire and Thunderbolt tentacles, I dub the new Mac Pro OctopusI'm going to start saving $.

Looks like your plan was better than my plan, Rich. My Mini will hold me for a while and I'll probably grab a current gen Pro off the refurb site before the supplies dry up.I bought the 2012 6 core model and am very satisfied, thank you very much. The speed numbers have gotten out of hand, like digital photography megapixel wars. I bought an external DVD burner (thank you 'he who must not be named!' ), filled it with 3TB drives and am good to go till....?
