you didn't buy apple care
You could go third party for significantly less
Also, you forgot about this upgrade:
OWC will make it possible to upgrade from any current Mac Pro configuration to 3.33 GHz 12-core (and that speed is not even offered by Apple yet )
If one does the OWC Mac Pro Nehalem upgrade on the 8-core 2 x 2.26, do you ship the processor tray without the original chips or do they take them and do not return them when the do the exchange.
based on this buying the 2.8 was a good move.
if the above is 899
and this is 1099 can't i sell my 2.8 on ebay say at 700 and go to the 3.33 for about 400 bucks. or just wait for the 3.7 to come out in nov. and get a 3.7 quad? upgrade for under 500 with the trade in
you forgot to get a 1x5.25" to 8x2.5" for both ODD slots and fill it with the best OWC SSDs in RAID 100+0, so much throughput
That would be mind-blowingly fast. Hell, I'm content with my 7200 RPM drive (and so is my wallet )
Actually Raid 100+0 would be even better, 3TB storage with 2GB/s+ throughput (can't forget the fact that it has a RAID one level in it), but just the SSDs would be over $25K
I would have gotten the same Mac Pro in specs, for far much less money, and quite possibly (60%) with better specs.
My ideal machine would "only" be about half that - $10,000 but phew...
