 Is the first one a cheese grater? 

The Cheese grater is the Mac Pro 2019 version (I think it's 2019). I remember it being talked about for its out there design and high launch price of 6000 dollar with a fully specced out version going for 10 times that.

WHAT!?!?!?!?!?

I guess you mean a 64 core threadripper and like 2x 2080ti's? What on the living hell would cost them $6000? And I dont even want to know what could cost them 10x more.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

So Xbox Series is trending only slightly better than Xbox One did at launch.

I can't remember, did Xbone have supply constraints at first too?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

It did for the first few months.

I'm more curious of seeing how the new consoles will pass through this summer. Once that's done, the data comparison will seem more interesting.

Not really. Maybe the first few weeks if at all. Sales dropped off a cliff after the Holiday season, that is why they cut the price of the console in June 2014.

I believe that is when Phil Spencer took over and released a version of the Xbox One without the Kinect.
