The Mac Pro is for awesome power. These are for true programmers, gamers, and the like. I would have no need for this except that this would be awesome to do my CAD work on. That would be a dream. These are mostly for businesses that can use the expense as a tax write off I think. Unless you are a hardcore apple guru and really want the power. :) This is kind of like my Mac Book Air on steroids times 100. This comes out in December of 2013. The black circular looking computer. Yes, that's the one I am talking about.
