Yeah, if we are able to upgrade GPU and RAM from off the shelf stuff we can get from Micro Center or Fry's would be great. That would imply easily accessible PCI-e slots and DIMM slots. That's what just about everyone is hoping for. I don't know if Apple will give that to users.

If they take the Lego bricks approach, there will probably proprietary connectors involved. If 3rd parties develop and sell adaptors, it will still be better than the MacPro6,1 situation where the entire card is a proprietary form factor.

I think room for lots of storage nowadays is much less of a concern. I know that I rely on my NAS for storage a lot more now and 10GbE is fast and reliable.
As long as they sell a brick with a PCIE slot in it that an off the shelf card can fit in. I have a Razor Core X EGPU and while you can fit any card you want into it and the power supply looks like a standard power supply that can be upgraded/replaced, it is roughly 50% the size of a normal computer case and it weighs twice as much.

Yeah. I agree. Apple has to put in to consideration that many people don't want so many attachments and cables hanging off their computer.

Is there a 10.15 name the new OS thread yet? MacOS Death Valley? Or Joshua Tree?
macOS Dry Mojave or Denali would be nice names too. We should also make a 10.15 name the new OS thread.
Here is a link about macOS 10.15

I honestly don't care so much about the name, they can call it what ever they like but if they continue with AMD only
then I don't even care about 10.15 or Mac OS anymore
year after year I was always excited to wait for the new version of Mac os
but Tim has killed the joy completely, there is no option or choice
is our way or the highway

I guess I'm taking the highway because I don't like AMD
I don't like being force to buy what they want me to buy
I buy what I like and what I want, I understand about compatibility
but this is not about compatibility, this is more like trying to screw a company and all it's users
simply because apple doesn't like nvidia

well I don't like Tim and I use Mac os
so much with think different, Tim the clown has to go

I honestly don't care about Mac OS any more, yes I still like it and I will love to have it installed
like I always had for more than a decade
but I'm not going to sacrifice my computer hardware just to install Mac OS

really hope that 10.15 brings support back to nvidia
because there is no way in hell I'm going to switch to AMD
I can easily buy a 580 or the new raedon vii but I refused because I don't like AMD
that is exactly what apple wants change people thinking and forced them to move to AMD
well ain't gonna happen
