I got the dreaded email today, again informing me that I need to upgrade to iCloud in the near future because in June, Mobile Me will be gone. Well, I have a 2 x 2.66 GHz  Dual-Core Intel Xeon Mac Pro (2007) that does not allow me to upgrade to Lion. Does this mean that my 4 internal hard drives, upgraded memory that is almost to the max and upgraded graphics cards and other additions, that  to this day makes this a very capable computer and easily fits my workflow in graphics files/storage/ manipulation in CS 5.5 OUTDATED?

 

Is it time for an upgrade. If this is the case I don't see how Apple can continue selling Mac Pro's if they are obsolete after 5 years. I have a LOT of money sunk into this computer and not have to use it as a secondary computer and be forced to buy a new - - - -WHAT? It probably won't be a new Mac Pro even if they come out with a new model.

 

I think Apple is being really unfair to those who have invested a lot of money or simply can't afford to buy a new computer that is compatible with Lion.

 

And I heard that early Dual Core Intels will be obsolete with Mountain LIon coming out in sometime this summer.  "OUCH" to a lot of people that even I know. They may have been switchers and got hooked on the fun of upgrading and the use of Mobile Me and all the cool stuff that came with it like iWeb. And now Apple will at least be taking away their ability and joy at upgrading. Is this fair?

 

What's going to happen in June to my email, iDisk and everything else associated with Mobile Me?

 

APPLE SAVE MOBILE ME. I'll eventually buy a new computer but i don't need one in June.
