Damned spoiled kids. Back in MY day we only had one core, and we were happy to have it! Now there are rumors (from fan site MacBidouille) that a six-core Mac Pro is about to launch, possibly as early as March of this year. The six-core Xeon processors (using the Gulftown architecture) won't be out until March, but Apple has a history of getting new Xeons a little bit before their wider release.

That means we could very well see these new Mac Pros hit in mid-to-late February. Electronista notes that the new Pros may also sport a new video card. The Radeon HD 5800 series could be a reasonable pick, as could the GeForce 300 and 400 series. We'll have to wait until March to know for sure.

Apple is set up to have a very good Spring. In February/March we'll see the iPad and the new Mac Pros launch. From there, we'll segue into the new iPhone and (possibly) the second iPad. I smell another record-breaking year for Cupertino.
