[Frank Gothmann] "there's the ram and gpu as well that require good airflow. It's those parts that take up space, not an optical drive, a bunch of hard drives or a few pci slots more or less.
A workstation class processor and architecture requires a workstation enclosure."


Do keep in mind that Intel has worked hard to lower the power consumption needs of processors at every level, which has enabled them to produce cooler-running and much more efficient computers in recent years.

In addition, the current crop of hard drives are also virtually cool to the touch, thus requiring far less cooling as well.

So, I think the footprint for future Mac workstations, if there are any, may be significantly smaller than the current towers we've grown used to.
