    I've been hunting for an imac or mac pro. Basically I want quad core and the ability to have a lot of storage space as my wife and I have a 7 week old daughter now who we are taking a ton of video and photos of. Thought the Mac Pro would be the best for this. And the fact that I want this purchase to last a long time and I think the Mac Pro would last longer for me than the iMac.

    Apple refurb has the lowest priced Mac Pro at 2199, which is a tad too expensive for me. But I saw better prices on macofalltrades. Anyone had experience with them? I've seen that they might not be the great CS, but I don't know.

    They have the same MP for $1499. Differences are no keyboard/mouse, 90 day warranty. But a much better price. I've generally only bought from Apple refurbished, so I don't know about any other way of getting a good priced Mac Pro.

    I've sold a couple of good Macs to them before if that means anything.

    well, the refurb price on the Mac Pro is cheaper than the edu price (I'm a grad student).

    I would check Amazon. Usually, they'll have a rebate, plus free shipping, plus no tax (at least for me). The combination of those 3 things makes them hard to beat.

    Amazon rebates are real simple too... no mailing. It is all done online and you actually get the check (at least, I have had no problems with them).

    Oh, when you buy anything from Amazon, I would make sure it says "Ships from and sold by" I have been screwed by other resellers who were selling through Amazon.
