Apple may be bringing two heavy hitters to the market early this summer according to some rumors fresh from the pages of AppleInsider. First up is a potentially gorgeous 27 inch, 2560 by 1440 resolution LED-backlit Cinema display which will be a handsome upgrade from the current 24 inch model. The 27-incher has reportedly been gracing the halls of Apple for some time now, waiting for market prices to drop to an affordable level for launch. For those with a cash flow that seemingly has no end, there will also reportedly be a new Mac Pro on tap for June which will feature not one, but two Xenon 5600 hexacore chips from Intel. This dodeca-core monster machine will be accompanied by a single chip Mac Pro model which is expected to launch in 2.66GHz, 2.8GHz, 2.93GHz, and 3.33GHz  configurations. Those rumored Core i7-980X Mac Pros are not off the table but that configuration is highly unlikely given the recent release of the Xenon 5600 processor line and the compatibility these processors offer with the current generation of Mac hardware.
