    I have found an amazing deal on craigslist for a Mac Pro. $750 with two dual core Xeon processors and two video cards. I am thinking of swapping out the video card with the one in my current gaming pc. Is this a good deal? Reply quick because I am not sure how long this will be up! Thank you!

    Oh I have no idea about that, lol
    I just know that even Mac Pros that are a few years old can still sell for about $1000 so when I saw the specs (looks fairly new) and the price, I thought it was a good deal. The Xeon is pretty powerful as it is. I'm sure someone can provide insight on your question though.

    Does the Mac Pro have warranty? It would be disappointing if something failed and wasn't covered.

    don't be disappointed if it turns out to be a scam. It seems that Apple products (especially the computers) are a big draw for scammers as they can still get good bang for the buck on trying to scam people out of their money.

    I've been trying to get a MBP on there for about 2 months and every decent deal on there seems to have a scammer behind it that wants to ship it to me because they are either deployed or out of town on business for an extended time.

    It sounds like a good deal, I hope the best for you on the deal and all goes well for you.
