New Mac Pro Racks Look More Like Missile Batteries

By Sam Gibbs on at

The new Mac Pro's bin-like design is certainly a departure from your usual power desktop towers, which means you need a new kind of rack to host the suckers. Thing is, it makes them look more like a rack of rockets ready to be fired at hackers than a server farm.

I can't imagine how much heat that thing is going to give off with two Mac Pros per slot and 270 of the things in total in each MacStadium Mac Pro POD. With them all pumping hot air out of their thermal core centres from drool-worthy internals, it's going to be like standing in front of a jet engine. [TUAW via 9to5Mac]
