Bleh, I'm one of the unlucky ones that got a screwed up Mac Pro. I ordered around the 23rd and received it the 29th. It constantly froze and gave me artifacts. Not to mention it was slower then a 266mhz Pentium MMX with 32mb of ram... Constant lag in every program, even typing in iChat would yield a 3-4 second delay before text showed up on the screen. Apple Care was terrible. They didn't understand what it was I was talking about. I sent them a few forum links via email - they seemed to have finally understood the problem and agreed to a refund. The idiot (yes I'm resorting to name calling now) over at customer service did not understand clearly that this was a return NOT an exchange. I had to call Apple Care and deal with the Sales dept this time to get the issue resolved. The Sales lady was VERY I mean VERY rude and unhelpful. She kept demanding a order number, even though I tried giving her a case number, she finally took the case number and got the bigger picture. I just came back from FedEX after reformating and packing up my Mac Pro. I asked the guy at the counter "it's next day air right?" He said nope, most definitely not, it's standard 7-10 ground. You got a "Bad Apple" he chuckled. That just nailed the coffin shut. I have to wait 7 days or so on top of the 5 days needed to refund me to get my money back and possibly order another Mac Pro? That's BS for a "premium brand" Get your act together Apple. I was ready to make the switch from Windows to Apple and I'm not a happy camper. I'm scared of ordering another Apple product now, I don't want to deal with the issues, I don't have the time for it. There support is also terrible, I thought Dell was bad, boy was I wrong. "So Why didn't you just get a replacement dude?" Because every second person in the "weird video issues" thread has a bad replacement too. I'm not going thru that mess again. Hopefully the 8800GT's ship soon and I will weigh out the possibilities of ordering another Mac Pro. I have 2 new hdd's and 2 sticks of OWC ram sitting on my desk now, plus a 30" ACD in a box behind me - what am I going to do with all of this stuff? For now I'm back on my E1405 and Dell 2005FPW.
