3. Can't wait to see the first thread about it getting tipped over and rolling off a desk - my cases have anti-roll protection technology™

1: the Imac has it on the back works fine don't know why the front panel is on the back and nothing on the "front" but well I guess it should work as you know where the ports is and they are aligned horizontally instead of vertical as in most pc's.
2:Intelligent design as I said before their technique is a lot like the CoolIT boreas TEC chiller.
Even though it doesn't use TEC's this is gonna be very efficient also they designed the fan and I guess they made it so that it cancels some of its own noise out.
They stated it would be quite only thing I don't get is why they choice a Aluminum core over a Copper core.
3:there is a powercord plugged in so it won't roll al that well.
so unless you're setting it up and give is a smash guess there is no way.

I hate Apple as much as the next guy but you have to admit that they make some sexy devices... That looks pretty awesome, especially the performance-to-size ratio!

The design seems to be very good for keeping things dust free.
Still I'm pretty sure I could put more power in a small space I would like to see their power supply though it seems like they made it incredibly small (as I need at least 20x5x2 cm per 200W)

Then why do you "hate" them? I think it's more the hipster iTool waiting in line to buy their expensive products that you really have the disdain for. That's more justified...

I do have a disdain for the tool that buys them but the reason I hate the corporation itself is for its business practices (think Asia although that's not really applicable for the Mac Pro and legal battles) and because of the fact that their products are overpriced. Still, I have to admit that they make some very nice devices in terms of look and build quality (especially the PCs).

Are you talking Foxconn and pegastron production plants?
Well can't really comment on that as I haven't seen what it is really like but the reports say all mayor brands do it.

A Mac Pro that costs ONLY 400$ more because it's made in USA? That's only like... 20% and not ridiculous 600% everyone says! What a deal! Everyone who's a true Patriot should buy this. You are not sacrificing much. MERICA'.

Yeah I'm over exaggerating a little but it's true for the most part biggrin.gif
Yeah, sounds funny especially after their tax evasion discovery.

Yea the entire unit is shipped to them with the top cover removed.
An American worker slaps the top cover on it.
