Re: Macworld

Well, it's a professional workstation grade Mac, so, I'm really not that surprised.

Re: Macworld

I am surprised. The same specs would be considerably less on a PC. Apple's hardware is good, but not that much better.

I guess if I ever change, it'll be an iMac!

That's the same with laptops Jim, my new laptop spec's (except for screen resolution) is the same as a Mac-book pro except mine cost $1200 and the same thing in a Mac is $2100 and that's with onboard video the one with my video card goes for $2600 but has a bigger ssd and 16 gig of ram instead of 8.

They definitely are pricey, but they just do it...

Well, typically you buy a good service contract with a Workstation, so they really aren't allot cheaper. Oh, just checked, you need to buy AppleCare for extended coverage - and it's not as good as a quality service plan from, say, HP Wow, unless I absolutely needed a MacOS workflow, I wouldn't touch this sucker for professional work

Re: Macworld

Apple claims this is not going to be a big seller. A very small niche.
