Hi, I've been looking into waiting and getting a new Mac Pro (if they ever come out). However, I WONT be using the machine for all its power, but instead, I need the expansion. The current gen is more than powerful enough for me, but I just thought I'd wait and get the latest tech. I came across this Mac Pro on kijiji, and here are the specs for it. It's a current gen 2.66 Quad Core with some upgrades for $2500. Listing: Mint Condition Mac Pro with a 2.66 quad Xeon Nehalem Processor. This is the 2009 model which has the new processors that the 2008 models and the previous did not contain. It supports hyperthreading, turbo-boosting and a feature that the i7's do not have being ECC (error correction for the ram); boosting performance into an entirely different realm of power and smoothness. Specs are as follows: 3 Hard drives: 75 GB Raptor 10,000 RPM (where the OS is loaded for much faster speed) / 250GB and the Stock 640 GB Stock graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 Ram: 7 gigs of DDR3 Fully buffered ECC Ram Comes with everything included (disks, mouse, keyboard, books) and the box. Also includes an airport card. Absolute Beast of a Computer, amazing aesthetically and hardly been used. Cleaned out often and runs perfectly. Will not ship. (Locals Only) Price is firm at 2500. **Also, this computer has a few programs loaded on it such as Photoshop CS5 as well as Windows XP Professional on the 250 GB HD** I can remove these or keep them on. I personally don't mind either way. Both are quite expensive, especially Photoshop CS5. Why pay for a new one at 2899.99 when this has much more in it, its just as quick if not faster, as well as its in the same condition a new one will come in. Thanks. It's about $500 cheaper than buying a new one with education discount (that doesn't even include the upgrades already done to the computer). So what do you think? Remember that I don't need the power of a newer machine (let alone this one), but I just need it for expandability and I need it to last me around 4-5 years. Will this work out well, or should I just wait for new ones (which will be about a $650 difference compared to this machine - my guess). Thanks!
