New Mac Pro Status Update

BREAKING NEWS!

Apple will OUTSOURCE the manufacturing of the new Mac Pro to Quanta Computers in China.

So I guess we can assume the insane prices will be as a result of "Trump Tariffs"? :)

I kinda figured they were on the skids a few years ago when they cleaned out the U.S. developers and outsourced coding to Ukranians who are GREAT coders...but 1/10 the cost.

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Can you open MULTIPLE sessions in PT? Uh...no. In S1 you can and S1 4.5 is great. Consider giving it a revisit since ALOT has changed for the much, much better.

Re: New subscription deal???

Actually for NEW SUBSCRIPTIONS, even at $24.92 per month, a "Native/Vanilla" Annual Subscription is ALOT MORE than a Perpetual License annual cost...$299.04. If you get hit with the Subscription...

What do you have to do to prove your eligibility? Does the EDU license you purchased take you beyond the 9/19 date you referenced above? That may be the reason.
