    O Donny Boy
    1500 what???

    GBP? US Dollars? Canadian Dollars? Australian Dollars???????

    If you were in Blighty then I'd say no, as you can grab an Apple refurb such as ...

    Refurbished Mac Pro 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
    Two 2.8GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon processors 2GB (2x1GB) of 800Mhz DDR2 ECC fully buffered DIMM 320GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s drive @ 7200rpm hard drive 16x SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD-RW/CD-RW) ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256MB

    ... for £1,499.00 and that includes a guarantee and VAT (£1,275.74 ex VAT)

    For about $700 more you can pick up a similarly powerful new mac pro with a warranty. Or for $500 more you can pick up a nice refurb from the mac store. That also comes with a warranty.

    Your call, but personally, for that much money, I'd rather just buy straight from the source.

    Not to mention you'd also have to buy Leopard and ilife '08 if you bought that one.

    My opinion also; then, you'll have the Apple warranty, and the knowledge that the computer has been rigorously tested by Apple.
