Breaking: Tim Cook Breaks Silence on Mac Pro’s Future
It doesn’t happen often, but Apple has let slip some it’s closely guarded future plans, and this time it came from the top. In an email response to one pro who emailed him, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said this:
Thanks for your email. Our Pro customers like you are really important to us. Although we didn’t have a chance to talk about a new Mac Pro at today’s event, don’t worry as we’re working on something really great for later next year. We also updated the current model today.
We’ve been continuing to update Final Cut Pro X with revolutionary pro features like industry leading multi-cam support and we just updated Aperture with incredible new image adjustment features.
We also announced a MacBook Pro with a Retina Display that is a great solution for many pros.
So what does this mean? It means that Apple is going to attempt to change the Pro PC market. In Apple’s usual style they release a minor update followed by an industry-changing event. The last such events include the introduction of the iPad (the original iPad), the new model Macbook air a few years ago (the update a few days ago was minor), and the new Macbook Pro. All of these designs were radically reengineered and changed (or are changing) an industry. Apple definitely plans to do that with this new plan.
|The Powerful New Mac Pro- 😉|
To figure out their new device, you need to look at the past. Apple does its’ best to simplify, solve problems, and preserve usefulness. With the new Mac Pro they will do just that. What Pros love about the Mac Pro is the flexibility, and the power. What they don’t like is how huge, and hugely expensive it is. Apple’s next Mac Pro will be about half the size.
The next generation of Mac Pro will have plenty of ports, solely SSD storage, and a wicked fast processor. It will be engineered by some Apple magic to solve the problem of noise and heat, also great concerns (which the SSD should help), and it will be complimented by a Retina Display Cinema Display. That’s it. Simple, powerful, and adjustable. That’s what Apple will release for their next pro machine.
But as Tim said, with the power of thunderbolt for multiscreen displays, SSDs, 16 gigs of 16000 DDR Ram, Ivy Bridge Processors, and the new GPU and Ram for graphics, the Macbook pro could easily be used as a powerful machine for developing, photo editing, gaming, and video editing. What do you guys expect in the next Mac Pro?
