I am a lecturer at a University and there are some consideration for buying the latest MAC Pro (The Trash can) to run our Protools 10. There has been serious apprehension regarding this from the money people as they feel it is too early to buy such a new design- especially when it is very difficult to upgrade. We work on a 5 year plan whereby after 5 years, the old stuff get replaced.
Has anyone had any experiences with the new MAC Pro and if so, were they negative/positive. What are your feelings regarding the new model and the difficulty in getting it upgraded. I know it is incredibly powerful but I am also looking at the fact that the model is in its early stages.
