Hi Ozzie Dollar screws Australian Mac users. Roughly Ozzie Dollar @ present $US 0.064 - 0.70 I just went to the ozzie apple.com web site and ran the prices for $AU (Ozzie Dollar) prices for the new MacPro's: sequentially it goes like this $4500 4 core quad 2.6 $5900 8 core 2 x 2.2 $8500 8 core 2 x 2.6 10600 8 core 2 x 2.9 I really admire the speeds of these new Macpros. But I have to tell you I sure appreciate it when I bought every thing last year at around this time and the ozzie $AU was around 0.98 cents. These new Mac's are damm fine machines , but I bought my 8 x 2.8 Mac for around & Au $4500. It's a no-brainer, at these exchange rates, new MacPros are only for the Hard Core. Cheers O Either the $US dollar turns to ***** without USA government bailouts or we'll be DAMMED! ie the more the $US Dollar craps out the better we will be.
