I want a Mac Pro just because...

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Awesome video. Makes me feel justified for wanting one "Just Because".

I think I'll have to wait a few years though so used ones can become "cheap".

OK, now I want one, too.

Not gonna get it, old Mac Pro is just fine, but now deem the new one lustworthy.

Oh man, this is hilarious. Some guy wants to sell his "super fast" 2014 FIRST GENERATION Mac Pro for $300.

I wrote him back, saying it'd be better used as a pot for his plants. hahahaha.

I want one that's still polished, then chrome plated. It would seem like a waste to buy one for that kind of money just to have to strip it myself!

I'd love one, but I just upgraded my iMac to a late 2012 27" model. Besides, along with the $3000 for the Mac Pro I would need an additional $900 for a t-bolt display. That's the price of my first new car (1977 Chevy Nova).

I'm happy with my BestBuy open-box iMac for $1300 out the door. That gives me an extra mortgage payment and four dinners out for the two of us.

Crap. Now I want a '77 Chevy Nova instead.

If we're choosing colors, I'll take this one.

I do too, after seeing it turned on the lathe.

Somebody could/will make a business out of making covers for the Mac Pro. After seeing what Apple did to make the actual shell, I don't think anybody will be doing that.

At least not as nice.

I remember paying $2,400 for a grey G3 Mac (it died in a few days, and Apple gave me the first blue-and-white G3 as a replacement, which I still have). But even with inflation, it would be hard to justify spending maybe $4,000 for the new Mac Pro and a 27" monitor. Not when my late 2009 27" iMac (i7, 16GB, 2TB) is probably more computer than I really need at this point, and is likely to remain so for a few years. . .

Maybe I can enter some contest and win one?

I still remember the $5,050 check I paid to a local Mac dealer for a brand new top-of-the-line 540c laptop. This thing had a 320 MB hard drive. A 500MB was available, but who could possibly need that much space? That's crazy talk.

It also had a 9.5" color active-matrix screen. Yeah, now we're talking.

The other best feature? Two batteries. That's right, homies. You just go ahead with your pitiful one-battery laptop and watch me burn through hours of hard computing. Without being plugged into a wall socket.

I paid over $4k to purchase my Beige G3, Monitor, scanner and printer bundled with Photoshop.

I am still curious to see the specs on the introductory model of the new Mac Pro.

I'm waiting for Macworld to test it. ArsTechnica will be overload for me and I don't know when barefeats will be able to test it.

Yeah, that's a mime that will never get old.
