I'm not ignoring it. I said several times. If you want to buy a mac pro now, it is a bad purchase.
If you said I ignore it, you are either illiterate or selective reader who absolutely did not read a word I said.
You repeating the same thing doesn't make it true. The fact that you won't buy a 4970K now because there are replacements, doesn't mean someone won't buy it.
You won't buy a lamborghini in your life, it doesn't make other people not buy it as well.
Also not seeing advantage in ECC memory seems like you don't understand again what ECC memory is meant to do.

I already posted proof. I don't need to repeat myself.
You not believing in it is your personal problem now.

What does the OS X has to do with the pricing of the mac pro?
OSX is a relatively light linux based OS. All of my OS X hardware has been silky smooth since day one. I could not say the same on any windows based system I have every had.
If I could get OS X on any computer I want and not just apple branded hardware, I would ditch windows completely.

Of course they don't, but if they want to stay competitive instead of out right over priced, they should.
Not saying if they want to take a certain premium its wrong. But keeping the mac pro price so much higher with 4 years old hardware, is stretching it. The sales of the mac pro has gone down the drain in the last year.
They are also soon out of warranty as well (which I guess just the time apple will bring its replacement).Edited by Defoler - 4/11/17 at 10:10pm
