Server
My studio's xserve is long in the tooth. We need to replace our aging server and I want to stay with a Mac Server. When will Apple update the Mac Pro line?

According to an email sent by Tim Cook, some time this year, though whether it's an update, or a replacing of the entire line with some re-imagined new concept, nobody knows.

I would hope its the perfect sort of thing to announce at WWDC, but I wouldn't bet money on it. And it probably won't ship for a while afterwards. Might depend how many Mac Pros they still have in stock.

They can't sell any of their stock in Europe, though, so I doubt that will significantly affect their calculations.

I doubt Europe was buying many Mac Pros.

They are selling new units as refurbs in Europe.

I don't see any indications of that. There's a single mono-processor Mac Pro on the refurb store in Germany.

Nobody was buying many Mac Pros.

But the percentage of creative professionals on Mac in Europe is going to be roughly equivalent to that in the US.

I bought one for a customer a few weeks ago and a guy at the store said that a lot of the refurb Mac Pros were new ones now because its the only legal way Apple can sell them here. Apparently we might hurt ourselves by sticking fingers into the fans. Ridiculous.

I'm not sure the Mac Pro is your best voice for a server, unless you need it to do some serious floating point number crunching. The new circular design could make for tricky server installations. Too bad the XServe has been discontinued. :(

My suggestion is not to put yourself in a small crowd of people doing weird things when it comes to servers, and in this case that is running either an XServe or a Mac Pro for mission critical stuff. I guess I would make exceptions to this rule if you needed Final Cut server or something that will only run on a Mac, but if you can run it on something else, do that, especially if it can be hosted in a VM.
