    It is a bad deal, i think. It's a Custom 5.1 and for that money it doesn't have the value. Get a 4 cores 4.1 and then upgrade the cpu tray when you need that extra power.

    You can get a single CPU genuine 5.1 Mac Pro from CEX for around £400 and upgrade it yourself.

    It's an ok deal although could be £50 cheaper as the case has a lot of scratching. If it was me I'd get a 4,1, flash it and upgrade the processor myself. You can get good deals on a 4,1 if you look hard enough.

    If you then want to upgrade to a dual cpus its best to just sell your single cpu Pro and buy one with dual CPUs already fitted.
