LG Chromebase 'opposite' of Mac Pro?

New desktops from Apple & LG

Two new desktop computers are on the way to a market full of laptops, and each is likely to have its own set of fans.

Apple's new Mac Pro lands in stores Thursday, and while most shoppers may not be clamoring for the desktop computer in the same way they have for the iPad Air, the influence of business users could help put the pricey machines into the hands of everyday computer users, according to CNET Editor-in-Chief Lindsey Turrentine.

"It's really more business users or professional freelancers and you know, of course, always that person who wants the very most powerful computer that they can get. There are always a few people out there like that," said Turrentine of those she expects to buy the new Mac Pro.
