Well, like many here they are waiting for a legitimate Mac Pro update. My 2006 Mac Pro is about 8x slower than the MBPr so in many ways it is a fabulous replacement! Especially hooked up to the Promise Pegasus R6 for superfast editing. My Mac Pro, as good as it was, will never touch the MBPr. I also have two Apple Thunderbolt Displays which are quite good for editing on. For me it is a stepping stone. I will get a new Mac Pro next year and then the MBPr becomes a purely mobile workstation.
i don't see how a macbook pro would even compete in terms of speed of even a base MacPro.
i have a 3 year old MacPro tower. 8 core with 24GB's of RAM and i would bet that it would outperform most MBP's.
i may be totally wrong and missing out however. i've never claimed to be a computer techy guy
