This Isn’t a Blog Post About Mac Pros…

Alexis Van Hurkman - Thinking AloudSigh.

I wasn’t going to chime in on this ongoing conversation, as frankly I don’t know that I have anything meaningful to add, and there’s nothing worse then baseless speculation about Apple. However, friend and colleague Patrick Inhofer noticed a blog entry of mine dating from the summer of 2010, fully two years ago this month, in which I foolishly elected to weigh in on the topic in response to Apple’s second to last, somewhat weak refresh of the Mac Pro line.

Since I had just moved the client part of my color correction practice over to DaVinci Resolve, I needed a new machine for the suite, so I went ahead and bought the 2010 Mac Pro later that summer. Little had I realized I’d be parked on that machine for the next two years.

My speculations in that prior post are now woefully dated, and I have no problem admitting that I was completely wrong. Apple was obviously not waiting for next generation FireWire, they went all in on Thunderbolt. And clearly, updating to PCIe 3.0 hasn’t been a priority (yet). And so, all of us who are still Mac Pro based shops continue to wait. So what do I think Apple’s going to do?

I have no idea.
