Someone Recreated The New Mac Pro’s Grille To Test If It Could Grate Cheese [Video]
The much loved 2013 Mac Pro was affectionately named the cheese-grater by fans, so when Apple announced a new re-imagining of it recently, there were obvious comparisons. The new model has a decidedly fancy lattice design that either looks amazing or atrocious depending on how you look at it, but just how good is it at grating cheese?
That’s obviously the question that nobody was asking. Except, Winston Moy was. So he went out to find out the answer.
To make that happen, he decided to have a go at making a replica of the lattice pattern that Apple uses on the new Mac Pro, documenting the whole thing as he went. As you can imagine, it wasn’t easy.
He didn’t just make something that looked similar, either. We went full bore on this thing by chamfering the edges to make it less likely to kill someone and even gave the model he made the same finish as the one Apple uses on its Mac Pro. And then he tried to grate some cheese with it.
You can check the full YouTube video out for yourself and you absolutely should. If anything, it’s clear this guy knows what he’s doing and that kind of thing should always be celebrated, even if we’ve no interest in knowing whether a computer can grant cheese because, well, it’s a computer.
The real Mac Pro will ship later this year and is set to be a costly proposition once it does. You really won’t want cheese anywhere near it.
