    Hi there im asking on behalf of a freind who is without a computer system and is looking to purchase a mac pro but is wondering if a new one is due out any time soon and also if if he purchases it but only gets One 2.8GHZ Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor would he in the future be able to add a second one or is the motherboard different between the two models. one with a single processor and the one with two ?

    all help and advice would be great as my mac knowledge is not that great.

    and what mobo does the apple mac pro use.

    The logic board is a custom Apple one: it's not an off the shelf product.

    It uses a 5400 series chipset.

    Apple makes it hard to upgrade their units. But they make it easy to buy a new one.
