Rant, vent, blow off steam here: There's no Core2 headless Mac!
OK, the Mac Pro thread was getting polluted by rants about a missing mid-range desktop Mac so I figured we might start a dedicated bitching thread here in order to keep the actual Mac Pro thread clean.

IMHO there's room for an expandable, headless, mid-range Mac between the mini and the Mac Pro. I'm thinking along the lines of
• Conroe 2.4GHz
• 4 DIMM slots
• 2 HDD bays
• one optical drive bay
• 2-3 PCI express slots (one 16 lane for the GPU)
• BTO everything else (GPU, Combo or SD, HDD size)
• a case similar to the PM 7600, easy to open and compact
• $1799
