New Mac Goodies

Mashable: “Video pros will probably be excited to see the new Mac Pros, the strongest of which now sports a drool-inducing 12 cores (that’s 24 virtual cores if you count Intel’s hyper-threading technology). If you’re so inclined, you can bump up your Mac Pro with a 512 GB SSD, as well as ATI Radeon HD 5870 with 1GB of memory. If you have to ask, the price starts at $4,999.”

Emphasis is mine. I’m pretty sure most folks will be talking about the Magic Trackpad today, so I thought I’d go right for the power hungry gear head in you. I think I could find a use for 12 cores, like compiling code. Heck, that’s so fast the code would compile before you clicked the button.
