    I'm looking to buy a Mac Pro 2,1 from these guys tomorrow, they have good reviews on both ebay and amazon and I wanted to know if anyone else has had any experience?

    Never heard of them. Personally I rather buy directly from Apple just to avoid any 'problems' with genuine parts, authenticity, refurbs, warranty, support, etc.
    [but i doubt you can get a 2006 model from apple hehe]

    Hi. We noticed your post. Thank you for your interest in our Mac Pros.

    We do have the Mac Pro 2,1 in stock. The system will be fully tested.

    Plus, we install only new hard drives. Most of our competitors leave in the original drives that usually have ~25,000 hours on them. Because of our testing process and the new drive, you can expect the system to be reliable for years.

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Thank you.

    I actually ended up buying from iBuildMacs, was a great experience and I left a Testimonial and I could not be happier with my 12-Core.

    I think over time it will be available in Europe (under the condition that the decision would be popular)

    Yes, we ship to EU.
    • USPS Priority Express Mail (4-5 business days): $300 Towers / $175 Cylinders
    • FedEx Express (2-3 business days): $450 Towers / $325 Cylinders
    Upon request, we can declare the package half of the value of the order, so customs taxes will not be an issue. For example, if your Mac Pro is $3000, we will declare it as $1500.
