    i was just wondering if it has been confirmed that you can order the single, and add in your own second 2.8 quad core xeon later ?

    im thinking about buying, but the high end model with 2 cpu's is crazy expensive

    Doesn't make economic sense (yet)

    BT0/CTO downgrade to single 2.8 CPU -$500.00

    Xeon E5462 ~$750.00

    Heat sink ~$100

    $500.00 saved up front will cost $850.00 on the back end, at current pricing. Even with a deep price cut in the future, still more expensive.
