I am buying a Mac Pro 12-core 2.93ghz, around 16GB RAM, 4TB internal storage shortly for the office, but want maximum value for money on components whilst avoiding dubious grey import websites and non-UK retailers. The components and accessories have to reflect a professional media environment, so for example, only quality displays like Apple or Dell will do. As far as I know, the main areas for saving money are, monitor, hard drive and RAM. So this is what I have so far: £158 each Seagate Barracuda XT Desktop Hard Disk Drive 2000GB 7200RPM SATA 64MB (Internal) £846 Crucial 16GB kit (8GBx2) / Part #: CT142179 £400 Dell UltraSharp 24" (61 cm) U2410 Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor with PremierColor - Black From Apple, I have education discount, so here are their prices: 16 GB (8 x 2 GB) [+ £504.08] 24 GB (6 x 4 GB) [+ £1,713.15] 1st drive: 2TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive [+ £101.05] 2nd drive: 2TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive [+ £202.10] Apple LED Cinema Display (24" flat panel) [+ £538.15] I put both sets of RAM as an Apple purchase would get you 16GB RAM but a Crucial purchase would get you a further 16GB of RAM, taking you up to 22GB with the existing RAM. Hard drives - the first Apple drive is cheaper, as it is offset by its replacement, but is the drive significantly inferior to a Barracuda? If not, then first drive Apple, second drive Barracuda? Monitors - £138 saving on the monitors each. Hard drives - £44 saving on subsequent HDs. RAM - let's be generous and base it on 24GB RAM from Apple, as it is only 2GB short. £867 saving. Are there any other UK people out there who have got some better deals and combinations without resorting to Value RAM components or less reputable or overseas websites? Thanks.
