Apple picked the best time to launch their new Mac Pro. After several months of advertising and solicitation of users, on 19th December they finally allowed users to order their own copy.

The upgrading in question here refers to the graphics subsystem, which is one of the weakest components of the current range of Mac Pro. This is in addition to the slower USB 2.0 and the absence of Thunderbolt.
