    Not sure where this belongs, but buy.com seems to have a good deal going on.

    Features
    Mac Pro Tower
    Intel Quad core Xeon 2.66 (2 x 2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors)
    4GB Memory
    250GB SATA Hard disk
    512MB ATI Radeon X1900XT DUAL DVI Video (MA631ZA)
    MAC OSX 10.4 Tiger
    (no Keyboard or Mouse)
    Warranty 90 Days

    899, in stock.

    I know the limitations on the firmware, but to me it seems like a good deal. Enough ram to start working right away, decent video card. Plus a warranty for 90 days. No keyboard or mouse though.

    We should have a area in the forum for apple related deals.

    Once again I wish I'd live in the US.

    This machine would make a great server! They do cost more than twice that much over here, though. :(

    Why the short warrantee? I thought all Apple refurb warranties were the same as their new models.

    Maybe because its not actually refurb by Apple themselves?

    Wasn't when I posted.

    Its not sold by apple, thus not a standard apple warranty.

    Got in before it sold out. Now deliberating whether $80 is worth to upgrade it to 3GHz (pushing the geekbench score like 900)..
