    Seems like a local computer biz has gone under.. and its assets will soon go under the hammer just 15 mins walk from my place next weekend.

    One of the listed items is a PM, and hey, if it is cheap enough I will certainly welcome into my house with a red carpet! Just one question though, how can I tell if it is the new model (with PCI-e) or the old one (dual processors, no PCIe) without opening the case?

    Not too sure if we can actually open it during inspection so just gotta be sure :)

    The newer models (w/ PCI-e) would have a single dual-core processor, while the older revision would have dual processors.

    You could check this by viewing 'About this Mac'.

    How does "About this Mac" look like with 2 physical processors? :confused:
