I just got a new MacBook Pro and upgraded the ram to 16GB (Apple will only sell you 8). I put in my own SSD (Saved a ton and got a better one than they sell.) I replaced the pointless DVD drive with an internal 1TB hard drive. It took me longer to shop for the parts than the actual installation took. I got a better, faster machine than Apple would sell me and saved $790 in the process.
I guess what I'm saying is, Stop whining and upgrade your own damn machines!!! If you really need a Mac "PRO", you should have a little bit of technical skills and intelligence. Buy better, faster, cheaper parts and install them yourself. It's really not that hard.
Go to Google
Type in "how to upgrade mac pro motherboard"
Find tons of good tutorials
Stop waiting around for Apple (or Dell, HP, etc.) to chew up the food and spit it into your mouth. You're not a baby bird.
The few hours that you invest will be recovered in improved performance.
By their own admissions the Hackintosh thing is a hobby at best. The machines are never able to stay current with the latest OS and updates, and require frequent tweaking to work well. Hackintosh is not the answer. Apple getting its &@^! together IS.
He is not advocating Hackintoshes, he is advocating updating MacPros on your own, with "aftermarket" parts. Such as USB3 boards, SSDs, etc...
I'm sorry to inform you but he is indeed advocating hackingtoshes. At least indirectly! Why? Because he proposed changing the mobo which is 100% hackingtosh and requires a lot of hacking to adress the support and to avoid the inherent stability problems. To me that will always be a nono. Talk about replacing ram with third party or to replace the hdd that's another story.
Back to the topic though: what strikes me the most is the fact that when i read news about the new Mac Pro i always seen complains about no Tb or Usb 3 (which are ok) but never i,ve seen people talks aboutmthe most important and that is SATA 3. If you still have sata2 it's useless to have TB or USB 3
