Intel says they are on track to help vendors to deliver around 100 different Thunderbolt devices this year.

That is good news for all concerned.

Very interesting to see Thunderbolt chips advancing.

From 9to5mac report "Another aspect that makes the DSL3510 interesting is that it supports multiple internal DisplayPort inputs. What this means is that it could in theory interface with a discrete graphics card as well as the integrated graphics from an Intel CPU. This is likely to be the chip used by Apple in its desktop systems, whereas the more power efficient DSL3310 will end up in notebook products."

Desktop system? Maybe a new Mac Pro/iPro?

That'd be my thinking too. I don't think it'll be called MacPro. It's why there's no mention of MacPro in the In Action FCPX case studies on Apple's site.

My thinking if it's got a built in monitor
iMacPro
if it's the "pizza box" RU thing I thought of previously.
MacMax
which would be at the other end of MacMini
Hmm maybe
MacXPro

Ya know Craig, I'm with you.
I think the next iteration may well be an iMac Pro model, perhaps with three TB ports, 64 GB RAM and a 30" screen...for instance.

MacMax sounds too much like Mad Max. What about Omega Mac?

[Andrew Kimery] "MacMax sounds too much like Mad Max"

Apple didn't have an issue with "MightyMouse"

MacMax staring in "Beyond the Thunderbolt"

Yup, no topping that. I bow to your punny prose.

The tough thing about naming conventions is how inconsistent Apple is with their computer names.
There's -
MacBookAir
MacBookPro
MacPro (on the way out apparently)
iMac

The last is the only one using the "i" convention like their iOS devices.
Their "top of the line" systems have had "Pro" in the name such as MacBookPro and MacPro.

The marketing question is why does Apple do the above and might they consider this new system a different beast.

It's almost easier to guess what the system might consist of than the name they might give it.

[Craig Seeman] "It's almost easier to guess what the system might consist of than the name they might give it."

Tim Cook seems fond of the archaic "Macintosh", so maybe that will make a return in some form.

Best,
Andy

Don't cross the streams!
