now 2039 up to last week it was 2119. i still think this one below a 2010 quad 2.8 at 2119 is the better deal

for 80 bucks more a 2.8 instead of 2.66
a 1tb hdd instead of 640gb
a built in airport extreme

I was surprised apple kept trying to get 2119 for the 09 at least they lowered it to 2039 instead of upping the 2010 refurb!

B&H is still selling new 2.66 Mac Pro's for $1899 with free shipping. Might be the better deal.

Yeah, if you want the 2009, don't get it from Apple, get it from B&H for only $1899.

I just picked up the 2010 2.8 from the refurb store. Everytime I went in a laughed at Apple pricing the 2009 model at the same price. No wonder the 2010 kept coming and going, yet the 2009 model hasn't budged.

Looking at B&H, I'm shocked they offer the Mac Pro Applecare for only $179!?! Is this is lowest "retail" price out there?

Loving my new 2010!

Interesting, will have to keep an eye out. They are $179 as well. LAComputer is also $179.

Definitely the 2009 reburbs from the Apple Store are a bad deal. The crappy video card, small hard drive, lack of wifi and lack of the ability to upgrade to a more modern processor later are for sure not worth the couple of hundred bucks or less that a 2010 reburb costs there.

Cost Central $1663 free shipping, brand new, not refurb.

They must be running out of stock though. It used to say hundreds in stock but now it says "Special Order".
