[Chris Kenny] "Although it'll probably happen eventually. If Intel has a 12 core processor available in a couple of years, will Apple really still feel the need to make a dual processor (i.e. 24 core) machine? There's a big price bump to go dual processor; at some point single CPU performance will be so high it won't really make sense even for most of the Mac Pro's demographic."

You've just made the case to cancel the Mac Pro. If no one needs something more powerful (and necessarily more expensive) than a single processor, then the top end iMac is all anyone needs.

Isn't the demographic for the Mac Pro the professional Mac user who really needs the most computing power they can reasonably stuff into a mass-market box?

For decades, we've been able to do things with lesser boxes that used to take bleeding edge rigs only a few years earlier. What makes 2012 the year that our expectations plateau?
