If you’ve browsed Macworld.com over the last couple of months, you’ve seen one name pop out at you, time and again—Kirk McElhearn. Kirk has not only introduced a series about using the command line, but is our regular Ask the iTunes Guy.

It’s no secret that with a new year comes another edition of Las Vegas’ massive Consumer Electronics Show (or CES to the initiated). Although it’s a show formally unattended by Apple, there’s always something to see for those interested in Apple and the markets it inhabits. This year, Macworld’s Philip Michaels and Jason Snell were in attendance and report in from a parking lot beneath Vegas’ not-as-quiet-as-you-might-imagine monorail.

I'm joined by Macworld Lab Director James Galbraith, who tested the thing, and Senior Editor Dan Frakes, who reviewed it. We talk about what makes the Mac Pro tick and who might want it.

Recently, Senior Contributor Ted Landau penned a piece entitled The new Mac Pro: Not for the faint of wallet, which offered up this very reasonable question: Is the Mac Pro truly a tool intended only for professionals?
