[Walter Soyka] "You need a pretty large motherboard (and ergo a large case) to fit two CPU sockets, 12 or more RAM slots, and cooling."

Funny. All of that fits on my MacPro mostly on a removable tray slot that takes up about a third of the entire MacPro.

I had to say that three times and bold it just to offer that this is just a discussion.

Seriously, though. Look at the inside of this MacPro.

There's a section of RAM/CPU, a section of PCIe, a hard drive section, then a section of optical drives + power supply, and some big handles around the whole thing.

Losing some of the parts, you don't think this could get smaller and lighter?

I understand that there's real implications here (laws of physics you called them), and the bigger processors are definitely more expensive, but I think this can be done and still keep the CPU power, don't you think?
