Hi all, I know there's a debate going on about the recent release of the 8-core Mac Pro, but I just couldn't wait. This is my first Intel Mac, and my first set of Mhz cpu's. Yes this is more machine than I know what to do with (for now) so I don't think I'll notice the lack of the Seburg improvements, I got a great deal through my Uni and support from work to buy it... how could I say no? What I got was the 3.0Mhz 8-core chipset, with 1GB of RAM (more is on the way) with the ATI Radeon X1900 XT, and Both Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and AirPort Extreme. So I present to you the unveiling of my mac. So you might ask "Well Raid good for you... but why no screen shots?" Well it seems that my new monitor didn't arrive with the tower, and I only have a CRT monitor (shown in the last pic). This means I'll have to wait a day or two before actually going to town on my new Mac Pro Not that I mind that much, I have to do some backing up of my old computer which may stretch into tomorrow, I'll post some screen shots later. Raid P.S! I am willing to do some speed testing with it. Let me know if there's anything I should try.
