I have been using my 2008 mac pro up until now. I love it. I think it's starting to show its age though. I use it to work on Logic Pro and play games from time to time (Team Fortress 2, Just Cause 2, etc). I think the most intensive thing for it is running the EWQL library, specifically Pianos and Symphony Orchestra. I find it takes quite a bit of time to load the EWQL instruments (ranging from 10 seconds to a full minute, if not longer). The limitation is probably the HDDs, but I am unsure. Not only that, but I find Logic seems to overload pretty easily (though this is might be partly due to the 32-bit architecture limitations, etc). Specs: 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Xeon 14GB 800MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM RAM nVidia 8800 GS 750GB 7200RPM HDD 1TB 7200RPM HDD I have been going to university for the past year, and the family iPad I have been using so far hasn't really been satisfactory for taking notes. It's been useful for being able to go on the Internet on a car trip. However, this will become a moot point, as I'm going to purchase an iPhone very soon (well, as soon as Apple releases a 128GB version... though 64GB might suffice...). The MacBook Pro, on the other hand, would probably work very well for me. I would be able to do everything I enjoy doing on the Mac Pro, including using Logic Pro at any time I wanted to. Plus, with the new Thunderbolt port, EWQL becomes an option with external RAID SSDs. At least, in theory. My question is this: Apart from the AMD 6750 being slightly inferior to the nVidia 8800 GS, and the lack of upgrade options (plus slightly less RAM), is there any reason to keep my Mac Pro? I assume the i7 is better than the Quad-Core? How much do you think I could get for the Mac Pro? According to Mac2Sell.com, I could sell it for around $1200, though I think this might be a little too optimistic. Do you think it's worth selling? Thanks for your time.
