Stephen Hackett’s Mac Pro

Stephen Hackett wrote a goodbye letter to his Mac Pro. I’ve been teasing him about that computer for years on the Mac Power Users, but I completely understand why he bought it … and why he is now selling it. When that Mac Pro was announced, it was the first time Apple ever invited the Mac Power Users to an Apple Keynote event. For that reason alone, I will always have a special place in my heart for that computer.

One odd thing that strikes me is that the currently shipping Mac Pro never ended up getting a common nickname. We had the “Cheese Grater” and the “Trash Can”. This new one never got there.

Now that Apple has announced WWDC will start on June 6, I’m hopeful that they’ll announce whatever they are going to be doing with the Mac Pro and Apple silicon. Will it be in the same case? I don’t think so. Hopefully, it’s not long before we find out.
