Apple Keynote and new goal for MacPro

Apple : Apple Keynote and new goal for MacPro - pcmusicOk, we've seen the new IOS 7, so, actually, it's just a great os for iPad, iPhone...
So, Air Drop is now integrated in OS7.
And we'll wait for the next Mac OSX 9 formally named Maverick (around next september for customers, and right now for developers)!
Everything is about software and except new macbook Air (999$) without Retina display.

So, Last but not least! the most important announcement for musicians is:The new Mac Pro... ...coming later this year... (grrrrrr!)

Processors:
The new Mac Pro is muscle through and through, starting with the new-generation Intel Xeon E5 chipset. With configurations offering up to 12 cores of processing power, up to 40GB/s of PCI Express gen 3 bandwidth, and 256-bit-wide floating-point instructions, you'll never be at a loss for speed.
Graphics:
Engineered around workstation graphics with dual GPUs, PCI Express-based flash storage, high-performance Thunderbolt 2, new-generation Xeon processors, ultrafast memory, and support for 4K video, the new Mac Pro delivers state-of-the-art performance across the board.
Memory:
Every component in the new Mac Pro is optimized for performance. That includes a four-channel DDR3 memory controller running at 1866MHz. It delivers up to 60GB/s of memory bandwidth, which means you can fly through even the most compute-intensive tasks in no time. And since it's ECC memory, your render job, video export, or simulation won't be stopped by transient memory errors.
About the storage:
There's flash storage, and then there's next-generation PCI Express flash storage. We're talking storage that's up to 2.5 times faster than the fastest SATA-based solid-state drive and up to 10 times faster than a 7200-rpm SATA hard drive. Most flash storage systems connect via SATA buses designed for slower spinning hard drives. But we designed the new Mac Pro around new PCI Express-based flash controller technology to deliver the fastest solid-state drives available standard in a desktop computer. So booting up, launching apps, even opening massive files happens in, well, a flash.

Ext connection:
Thunderbolt is the fastest, most versatile I/O technology there is. And with Mac Pro, we're jumping even further ahead. Thunderbolt 2 delivers twice the throughput, providing up to 20Gb/s of bandwidth to each external device. So you're more than ready for the next generation of high-performance peripherals. You can connect massive amounts of storage, add a PCI expansion chassis, and work with the latest external displays — including 4K desktop displays and peripheral devices capable of broadcast monitoring in 4K. And since each Thunderbolt 2 port allows you to daisy-chain up to six peripherals, you can go all out by plugging in up to 36 external devices via Thunderbolt alone.
