The new octa core processors in the early 2008 Mac Pros are incredible. The higher bus speed is also quite nice. I have a ummm late 2006 model. Don't get me wrong. I love the thing and it still has all the power I need. 2X2.66G, 6G RAM, ATI X1900XT, and 10K drives. However when I look at my 4 lonely cores in iStat Pro I feel I should be looking at 8. I have been looking at the Apple store site and drooling over a 2X3.2G octa core with that 1.5G graphics card and SAS drives. I was surprised to see that Apple's price on the SAS drives are about equal to the industry. I am happy that Apple has left most of the mac pro alone and my computer is still a contender. Still I no longer have top Mac bragging rights. Does anyone else feel a little less with their older Mac Pros? At least now the previous Intel Xserves will be cheaper. I still need one of those monsters.
