Apple would also cut down the height of Mac Pro to make it rackable in server cabinets as a 3U component.
The said report also claims that Apple has developed a “stacked” drive configuration making use of sleds competent in handling two conventional or solid state hard drives apiece. It would considerably increase the density of drives and would help in Apple efforts to squeeze all of the existing components into the slighter form factor for new Mac Pro 2011.
Looking at the Pro Mac design evolution, it is interesting to note that the Mac Pro’s current design first hit the market in the form of the Power Mac G5 in mid-2003.

The new design is said to be narrower at just over 5-inches and a few inches shorter at around 19-inches. One of the reasons that Apple might be making this particular Mac Pro prototype smaller is because it is able to fit on to a standard server rack.
