    Hi everybody!
    I have a question about Mac Pro.

    I'm producing music,working in Logic.
    I'm making all job in it.
    I have Mac Pro G5 (2x2.66 Dual Core Intel Xeon),one of the first intel-G5's,so its near 5 years old.
    Nowadays,it's not enough power for my production,so i need to upgrade.

    Somewhere I've Heard,that you can Connect two Mac Pro's ,so they could work in CHAIN,merge power,so two system blocks will work under one OSX,like two brains will work on one goal (Logic projects).

    My question is - is that myth or true?

    Because,if its true,i'll better go to apple store and buy fresh Mac Pro instead of upgrading components of my 5-years old Mac.

    It is a myth.
    Some applications allow the use of several networked computers to render or calculate one project though, but Logic Pro is not one of them, as far as I know.

    And btw, the PPC PowerMac G5 is not a Mac Pro and the 2006 Mac Pros are not a G5 Mac Pro.
    The G5 is the name of a PowerPC (PPC) CPU series Apple used from 2003 to 2005 in their iMacs and PowerMacs.

    Yes, thanks, I understand it is a Mac Pro, I was just making you aware, that the G5 is a CPU used in PowerMacs, the predecessors of Mac Pros, which use Intel Xeon CPUs, thus "Mac Pro G5" is the wrong name to describe either a PowerMac G5 or Mac Pro, as it confuses things.
