In addition to the rumored and long overdue Mac Pro update, we might also see MacBook Air and MacBook Pro updates, and maybe even the MacMini.
If there is a new MacBook Pro, I’ll be reviewing that also, and maybe even a MacBook Air, if it has the features I need when I travel (minimum 8GB memory, non-sluggish CPU).
I’ll be discussing my viewpoint on what the new hardware really means as a practical matter for photographers and videographers.
Availability is another matter. Base configurations with the slowest CPU might be immediately available, but I prefer to test the faster configurations, and those might take a week or even several weeks to arrive for testing given Apple’s past performance (for example, Apple Stores almost never carry anything but the lower grade models).
I also intend to compare the new Mac Pro to my existing 6-core and 12-core 3.33 GHz Mac Pros, to yield a realistic view of what can be expected with variety of software. See my in-depth review of the 2010-2012 Mac Pro Westmere.
