Some Images of the MacPro Insides: iStudio, Bangkok

I often call in to the iStudio store in Siam Discovery and this Saturday, on my way home after a quick visit to the supermarket, I stopped by to check on a LaCie hard disk with Thunderbolt ports. These are not all that common in Thailand as yet and a phone call from iStudio on Friday told me that while there was no solid information on the LaCie SSD disk ($1299 in the USA) they did have another.

I ended up buying the LaCie disk but while in the store, chatted about a number of things, including the new MacPro. I mentioned I had taken a couple of pictures when this had first arrived in the store, but wondered about the inside. . . .

The staff were really keen to let me have a look, so shut the Mac down, showed me how to unlock the body and let me lift the outer casing off. It felt surprisingly substantial in my hands and not at all flimsy.

I took some pics with the iPhone. . . .
