15 parodies du nouveau Mac Pro 2013 : Olybop
Looks to be really multi-functional.
Those pictures beside the iPad are pretty amazing. I didn't realise how small it was.
imgur is blocked in pretty much most schools I'd imagine, so we can't see the images.

Lifespan - disposable camera level. Form over function, rather typical. I'm impressed never-the-less, as any person would be but sometimes people just go too far. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see why these are likely to have unworkable failure rates and hardware engineers planet-wide are glad they work for someone else where their work is built to last.

Time will tell on it. It doesn't look particularly ingenious, it looks standard fare. I'd like to get my hands on one of course, I'm a tinkerer, a hardware monkey. I also entirely ignore 90% of website's bile until I've had my hands on something and made my own decisions! My current diagnosis goes on Apple's previous failures to apply correct levels of cooling to "premium" hardware ending up in macbooks and mac pro's being chock full of dry joints. Hopefully they've made some progress.

I aint no apple fanboy but am I the only one that's impressed with this? It's an inspired and very clever peice of design. As far as I am aware no other manufacturer has ever designed a workstation so that all components mate to the same heatsink for cooling with just one big fan?
Don't get me wrong, it's expensive and underpowered and has high maintennace costs compared to a top class workstation like a HP Z820 - but just look at it! Arty farty types will be buying it in droves!

Yes, plenty of others have done this. It's not uncommon, i think a majority of consoles do similar but there's a little less to them. In fact it's hardly any different to basic laptop design in reality. Apple have failed at that before. All devices physically connecting to the same heatsink feels like a heat trap, it's a bit different with heatpipes as the transfer is "mobile". There's a lot more heat coming from this than heatpipe connected laptops too with a workstation level gpu, high end processor and the RAM. I'd like to see a top-down of that heatsink, as it stands it looks unsuitable. I'd of course say "clearly they've done the work" but this is Apple. Looking good > function or lifespan.
