I rarely create threads, but I have been racking my brain over this for a few weeks now. Have a 2008 Mac Pro, decently upgraded (no SSDs). Warranty ends in the middle of Feb 2011. Cost of entry on the newer machines is higher than it was (for six/eight core models). Those with 2008 Mac Pro's, what are you doing as your warranty comes to an end? I am not hurting for speed, this is purely from a warranty standpoint.
