Looks like upgrading to HDX may not be the only challenge going forward...

Despite new CPU options, Apple reportedly questioning future of Mac Pro

"Despite the coming availability of a new generation of Sandy Bridge desktop CPUs suitable for advancing Apple's Mac Pro line, the company (Apple) has reportedly been evaluating whether to continue to invest in furthering its full-sized workstation line beyond this year in the face of limited sales."

Just a rumor. And the exact same one has been posted by those same sites for five years or more (and turned out to be false).

Actually, these rumors sites have a very impressive track record. I've come to rely on them quite a bit for my purchasing decisions.

Rumors about releases, sure. Rumors about killing products off? There have been rumors about killing the MP going back to 2007 (and probably longer). As well as many rumors for years about the mini. Obviously those all turned out to be wrong. I can't think of the last rumor about a product getting killed off that turned out to be right.

You folks still have to consider the Moore's Law impact on the situation.

I don't think they will discontinue the Mac Pro line.
It is the simplest line to "develop".
It is basic PC hardware with a great looking chassi so it will not cost too many man hours to put the hardware together.
