[macworld] Apple confirms it will cease shipping Mac Pro in Europe on 1 March - Page 4  

post #31 of 196

Those people who will buy Mac Pro are mainly for performances but to be honest, many of them would rather custom built 3930k - 3970X system which is much cheaper to do + Quadro/FirePro cards. Why paying Apple $6000 full decked out? It is still not as powerful as the custom built if you want it to save time. (Cinema industries).

 

If money isn't the issue well Apple is still behind on performances.

The mac pro is so outdated that if you're looking after the performance and support, you'll be much better off buying a HP, Dell, etc. workstation.

Well even the new Mac Pro is out, it is still at least $500-$1000 more expensive. My MacBook Pro costs $2100 comparable to a $1600 windows laptop. If you know what I mean. OS X is the reason I got it. Otherwise nope, if I can hackintosh it easily on laptops.

You are more likely to be employed (or be elected) by achieving results than by doing nothing.
Public perception of results is more important than whether or not the results are actually good/bad/necessary/unnecessary/justified/unjustified.

Regulators aren't politicians and aren't elected.





All of you people are being utterly ridiculous. The regulations are made now to protect and regulate new and existing products. It just so happens that this new regulations affects this older product that doesn't adhere. It's an old, outdated product, so it's not like it really matters. All that this means is that fans need fan guards on them. It doesn't matter what reasons you want to give why this is a bad idea - you're wrong. It's not something that affects the price, your usage or performance. IF it really bothers you so much you'll open your computer and waste time removing them (which will invalidate your Apple warranty thumb.gif )

It's not a big deal. Regulations are put in place for good reasons.

If by good reasons you mean because some special interest group got to a politician and made a campaign contribution to drive up the cost or need for a product so they will make money providing that item ... or maybe because of some knee jerk reaction to a freak accident that doesn't happen but like once every 2 years ... like a kid got an "owwie because while his father was working on his computer case and turned his back for 5 seconds the kid stuck his finger in a fan that normally was never designed to be exposed to the outside world" ... I agree with you. thumb.gif

Here are some other regulations that were "put in place for good reasons":

Baltimore

It’s illegal to throw bales of hay from a second-story window within the city limits.

It’s illegal to take a lion to the movies.

It is a park rule violation to be in a public park with a sleeveless shirt.

It is a violation of city code to sell chicks or ducklings to a minor within 1 week of the Easter holiday.

California

It’s unlawful to let a dog pursue a bear or bobcat at any time.

Sunshine is guaranteed to the masses.

Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship.

Stupid is stupid.

Unless you are inside the case this wouldn't hurt you at all. And at which point if you are inside the case you ought to know what you're doing otherwise you deserve to get hurt.

Just personal experience, but all the wealthy people I know are pretty intelligent. The guy who works retail, well lets just say there's a greater chance of stupidity.
