Default Mac v PC

At the end of the day Macs and PC are nearly the same thing, it's just the operating system that's different. The new mac pro has some interesting graphic card innovations but nothing that can't be done on a PC and certainly nothing that changes how a music workstation functions.

Having all the I/O on PCIe is interesting but there's so many different options on PC for motherboards you can pretty much get exactly what you want.

Everyone I know that needed an updated workstation ran a hackintosh. Now they can run a new Mac Pro.... which will be obsolete in 2 years. I can't imagine spending $15k-20k on a Mac Pro when I could have bought a higher core-count PC and saved $5k or more.
