Just got myself a Mac Pro Quad Core from Amazon for $2,290 incl. ship and no tax. Most everybody says wow, nice, but expensive. Overpriced? I almost thought so until a had Dell create a similar box, and low and behold... Check out the components, I chose them to be as close to the Mac as possible... Dell Precision T5500 Workstation Genuine Windows Vista® Business Bonus 64 -Windows XP Professional downgrade Quad Core Intel® Xeon® Processor X5550 2.66GHz,8M L3, 6.4GT/s,turbo Mini-Tower Chassis Configuration w/ 1394 Card 3GB, DDR3 RDIMM Memory,1333MHz, ECC (3 DIMMS) 512MB NVIDIA® Quadro® FX 580, DUAL MON, 2 DP & 1 DVI C1 All SATA drives, Non-RAID, 1 drive total configuration Integrated Intel chipset SATA 3.0Gb/s controller 500GB SATA 3.0Gb/s with NCQ and 16MB DataBurst Cache 16X DVD-ROM with Cyberlink Power DVD THE PRICE CAME TO ABOUT $3,100 !!! Factor in that the case of the Mac Pro is superior to any Dell case in so many ways and I have just busted the myth of the overpriced Apple computer.
