Hello all, I just want to ask you, if a Mac Pro from 2006, (2x 2,66 GHz DualCore Xeon, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB HDD, no guaranty, no CDs or DVDs, only the power cord included) is worth to buy right now (I mean: in april 2009). The case is damaged (the handles and on of the side is/are deformed because of transportations), but the internal works, as the user send me some pictures and screenshots. The price after the auction will top around 500-550 . A new case would be around 300 , but I think, thats just a cosmetic problem. So the question is, if I get this for about 550 (or hopefully less) is this worth it, or should I look for a new Mac mini or even a cheap PC with Windows Vista home premium (maybe 64-bit) or something similar? I know, i definitly need a min. of 2 GB RAM. I've got around 750 for a (new) computer. I would need the computer for illustrations, dtp and some 2D animation works (so nothing special), but I would like to have two monitors option. Or would be the Mac mini a better option, because the faster RAMs and because it draws much less power, than the big Mac? I already got 2x250 GB HDDs, from my actual PC (Pentium 4, 2 GHz, but got problems with it's RAM memory and since it's so expensive, I think I rather invest into a "new" computer), I would use these somehow, whatever I get: the Mac pro or a new Mac mini. Or should I buy a new PC? I've got a cross-platform painter X license and two licenses (Windows and Mac) of Adobe CS3 Design Standard, so software wise it doesn't matter. What are your opinions? Thanks for your answers.
