New Macpro

Yo folks: Apple just released thier new Mac....called Macpro.

I am very interesting in this. so I can replace my current G4 Dual 1.25.

but My problem is ..If I get this , My whole system gonna blow away.

My Magma 32/7 slots and 2 UADs. 3 Poco will be useless also..

So Anyone got any idea for this ??

Get a new mac and still keep old system working ...

or just sell all my old sytem and get new PCI-E system ??

Thanks a lot.

Just hang on a little longer- magma interface card available soon to allow exsisting chassis(including your 7slot/32bit) to work with PCIe computers
such as the Mac Quad 2.5Ghz, or the new Mac Pro. Magma say card will cost $299. Also Express 34 card coming soon - so you can use your chassis with MacBook Pro.

The Mac Pros use Intel chips. Won't UA need to port their plugins to Universal Binary before any of us can use the Macs?

Have you got any additional info on this? I'm also reluctant to ditch all my PCI equipment when upgrading to the mac pro.

Thanks in advance

thanks mikeyb

Somehow I've got the feeling that this host card will not be compatible with the chassis and connectors I have now...

Let's wait and see, anyway.
