Mac Pro: a cylinder to forget the Cube

Mac Pro: They have already nicknamed it the most expensive beer bottle in the world, but the Mac Pro has captured everyone's attention for the new design.

They have already nicknamed it the most expensive beer bottle in the world, but the Mac Pro has captured everyone's attention for the new design. A black and shiny cylinder.Apple returns to propose a new desktop (very high performance) after years of absence from the sector. He left his first fans for a very long time: graphic designers, 3D professionals, musicians. Luckily (della Mela) the creatives are also its most loyal customers and never in these long years of abandonment have they thought of leaving Apple, even if they didn't hold them in high regard. They are the ones who prevented Apple from going bankrupt in the 90s, linked to a company that floundered, even technologically. But they have remained faithful, like a prophet in disgrace. Today they return to the center of attention with the Mac Pro designed for them. Curious that Apple raises the desktop segment with a black cylinder. Even Steve Jobs, on his return to Apple after the fight, had tried to re-launch his desktops with the biggest flop of all time: the Mac G4 Cube: a transparent, beautiful and unusable cube. The new Mac Pro project seems to be it was done by doing exactly the opposite of the G4. From the cubic ant to the transparent-to-black cylinder. No fans at a central apparatus that looks like a turbine. Perhaps the fear of another flop, or perhaps superstition has led engineers and Apple designers to do exactly the opposite of what Jobs did with the G4. Perhaps the Mac Pro was a superstitious act, the search for a catharsis for a hole that still burns on the skin of the Apple.
