    It's the first MacPro, that was released in 8/2006 and discontinued in 1/2008.

    Yours is the middle model with 2 cpus with a total of 4 cores, RAM expandable to 32 GB....
    Look into MacTracker for this.

    It's a good deal with a 20" thrown in.

    But check it out first, and if there is still warranty.

    yea, just go to the support page and use the Online Service Assitant. If it is still active make sure you have it transfered to your name.

    www.mac2sell.net is a good online resource for pricing used macs. It's a bit on the low side, but if the sale price isn't too much more than its quote, you're not getting screwed.

    I think so. Maybe if the retailer you had been on a deal is trusted, that could affect the warranty and longevity of your purchase.
