Apple insists it has not forgotten about the Mac Pro-- SVP of global marketing Phil Schiller tells Daring Fireball a "completely rethought" Mac Pro is to launch some time next year.
As one might expect Schiller gives very little details as to what the next generation of Apple pro desktop PC will offer. He does promise it features a "modular system," since Apple reportedly feels "sorry" about the concept behind the Mac Pro.
"The current Mac Pro, as we’ve said a few times, was constrained thermally and it restricted our ability to upgrade it," Schiller says. "And for that, we’re sorry to disappoint customers who wanted that, and we’ve asked the team to go and re-architect and design something great for the future that those Mac Pro customers who want more expandability, more upgradability in the future."
