    "Having more than a passing resemblance to the Apple Mac Pro..."

    Call me jaded and cynical, but why do I forsee Apple letting MSI gain a bit of revenue from this before putting in some kind of patent infringement claim?

    Great design, though certainly not to my taste, I prefer the traditional form factor with incremental upgradability.

    Like the mac pro I love and hate it, I love the design, I hate that you can't update it like a regular desktop.

    Why so small? I want one the size of R2-D2 with more room for expansion ;-)

    Technically upgradable GPUs...

    Curious about the cooling in the system.

    Huh? It's nothing like the Mac Pro, it doesnt even have a round cross section. Pick any mid tower PC case at random and compare to another and they are much more similar than this is to the Mac Pro.
