    And came home with a new Mac Pro. Still transferring everything from my old computer. Most surprising thing so far is that it is virtually quiet... :wiggle:

    I will have one of those by the end of the year. Well probably after MacWorld 09, maybe, just to have one. Maybe sooner if I decide to use my tax refund towards one. If I wait for macworld 09, i might get one with 12 cores ;)

    Very nice. Yeah the Mac Pros are much quieter since they got the cooling fan processor issue straightened up. Silent but deadly.

    Yeah just make sure if you get extra hard drives that you check out something like silentpcreview.com for the quiest models if silence is important. I had a pair of seagates that were louder than anything else in the room.

    Realistically it is likely that 16 core workstations will be here spring-summer 2009.

    Well Nehalem is supposed to surface later this year with quad core high end processors. Which so far has meant one very expensive quad core for gamers and Xeons for servers and workstations. Then there are supposed to be 8 core processors in early 2009. Time will tell though.
