Like many other editors currently in limbo over the state of Apple’s pro desktop line, the Mac Pro, I asked myself what my next computer would be. Now, I want to clarify, my situation is not a dire one. I’m not a facility manager trying to decide how to manage a large number of machine upgrades over the next few years. In fact, the computer I’m looking to replace is not my work machine at all. It is my home setup, currently a 2006, Mac Pro 1,1. My work machine is a 2010 Mac Pro, with 12 cores, fully specked out, with 64 GB or RAM and an SSD boot. While I do have concerns about what my office will do if the Mac Pro ceases to exist, or exist in a usable form factor for our needs, this post isn’t about that. I think myself and my company have taken a wait and see approach to that issue for the time being. If 2013 passes and we’ve still seen or heard nothing from Apple on that front, that is when the tough decisions will probably need to get made.
