    Yeah I am glad to see the old case. I am sure the next reiteration of the “Mac Pro” will probably have a new case

    I feel really good about his, the old case brings familiarity, along with the functionality of helping cool that beast. For those of you hat have ever really opened a Pmac G5, it is well organized, I think that is something that is the way it is because of the case design.
    Thank you Apple. 🙂
