Hi, I am about to pick up a 2008 mac pro 8-Core for $2100 (brand new) from an Apple certified reseller tomorrow. Is this a good deal or no? I work IT in academia, and soon will be working on my MS in Computer Science in the evening. It's the 2.83GHz 8-core 2008 model. Opinions? Pointers? I am trying to keep the costs as low as I can go, and also be able to get a 3-year Applecare warranty later.
