What's the deal with these?
How rare are they really?
Do people collect them?
Do people sell them?
Where can you buy them?
Wow, I've never seen this before. Obviously rare. Where did you get this Mac Pro prototype?I have one someone told me they are valuable. Im using it to play games LOL Its way faster than my old system and it worked well with the GTX680 out of the box. ( external PSU ) but no issues. Just wondering.. Ill never sell it I use it every day but just wondering again. Oddly this one does not have a red board but its clearly a prototype from my research.
\Your pie is ready. Do you prefer it served cold or hot?
Being that non of us know how many prototype revolutions Apple make, or how they evolve, or to what degree they are used for in and outside the company before production models are shipped I don't see any evidence this isn't a prototype other than it being more advanced than the only other prototype to surface on here.\
So why does the info in those shots not tally?
When in Mavericks it claims to be a 2.8 machine. Yet in Windows it magically becomes a 3.00? No chance.
It may be a final pre-production sample, but it isn't an original prototype. Arn posted pictures on here of a true MP prototype.
I think the only thing you could add that would give performance would be 5482s at 3.2GHz. I.e not worth it.Do you think since all the chips are removable that this was used to test different CPU / NB configurations? and that i could get a Lga chip and change this to something that could accept different cpus?
