[Chris Murphy] "I agree that the PCIe expansion chassis is not elegant. "

Absolutely. But let's be clear about the use-case for PCIe in the new MacPro- the VAST MAJORITY of people will be using it to connect to legacy hardware that they're not ready to give up yet. But in the last 2 years most of the major manufactures have started offering TB connects for their products, so it's not like a PCIe expansion chassis is going to be perpetually necessary in this scenario going forward. Some will continue to need it for a while, but those use-cases will become less and less.
