Thanks to the next-generation Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Nehalem” processors and new system architecture, the Mac Pro now delivers performance thatʼs nearly twice as fast as before.(1) Each processor features an integrated memory controller and 8MB of fully shared L3 cache. With blazing-fast 1066MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM, high-performance graphics, a redesigned interior for easier expansion, itʼs the most advanced Mac Pro ever. (1)Testing conducted by Apple in February 2009 using preproduction Mac Pro 8-core 2.93GHz units and shipping Mac Pro 8-core 3.2GHz units. SPEC® is a registered trademark of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC); see www.spec.org for more information.

At first you may think $2999 is a lot of money for a computer, but this model is actually about the same price as a typical iMac or high end MacBook Pro.

Like the MacBook Pro or iMac, you get a quad core CPU and a decent amount of RAM (12GB), but the Quad core in this model is a workstation class Intel Xeon CPU. The main difference is that the MacBook and iMac CPUs were designed for mobile use, so they emphasize power savings and heat control. The Xeon on the other hand was designed for raw and sustained computation. This translates into more consistent performance. Whereas a CPU hungry program in a MacBook or iMac can Turbo Boost it's clockrate when needed, it drops back when it sustains that speed for too long and it gets hot. Most users can easily hear the fans kick into high gear when that happens... not so with the Mac Pro... it just keeps cranking along without breaking a sweat.

The other thing to know is that a good chunk of the price of this computer is actually because it has two very high end video cards inside, the D300s. If you owned a regular PC and bought two similar cards to put in it, those cards would cost more than this entire computer.

The big advantage of this line however is expansion. Unlike the MacBook Pro and iMac, you can upgrade components inside and outside with ease. You can add up to 64 GB of RAM, twice the maximum of the iMac, and 4 times more than the MacBook. And you can upgrade the solid state drive inside. Currently you'll have a hard time finding Solid State Drives for it, but OWC and other companies are already working on drives.

One other advantage of the Mac Pro over the iMac... 4K video. Yes... I know you don't think you'll need it. You may not feel that way next year.

Verified Purchase
So I just received my machine and it started off great! Did the updates as normal and all of a sudden...BAM! locked up screen! I was getting a "Your system has run out of application memory" message...I've never seen that before...not off to a good start Apple.

At this point I've spent about an hour with the kind people at Apple trying to figure this out. They logged in remotely and took a look around. With only running Safari they found that my memory pressure was at almost 5gb...which was shocking for even them to see. Did a few more things and they suggested I re-install OSX and go from there. SO, new machine with a glitch somewhere within and new to the folks at apple...I'll update as soon as I get back up and running.

So, 3 stars for now because I have faith in these products and I'm sure we'll get it figured out.

Oh, and if you're a Mac hater....save your fingers and do something better with them. Have a great day!

4/16/2014 UPDATE
After two re-installations I've given up on this one machine. Not on the product overall, just this one machine. Seems this could have been a faulty product from the factory. Everything just seemed off with it...so I'm getting my replacement in two days. I will update on new machine.

5/5/2014 UPDATE
Allrighty! Been working on this machine for a couple of weeks now and I'm elated that this machine works like it should. The first one seemed to have had a bad RAM chip or something. Been editing both photos and videos on this thing and I can now say I am satisfied. Moved my rating up to 5 stars.

Every once in a while Apple has to come out with a form factor for a computer that no one ever thought of before. This one looks like a 1960's desktop ashtray or possibly Darth Vader's lightsaber charger. Doesn't matter. It is extremely fast, stable, quiet. I had the 2008 Mac Pro tower which was bogging down and freezing with my work. I bought this one with the 6 core processor, 512k of internal SSA storage, and 32 gigs of RAM. I run Parallels all the time running Windows 7. I give that 8 gigs of RAM and reserve the rest for the Mac side. Windows runs just fine. Opening programs just screams because they are all stored in the RAM drive. I keep lots of programs open at once... Word, Excel, Mail, TodoPro, Safari, Adobe Acrobat Pro, Endnote, and sometimes PhotoShop Elements. I run Quickbooks Pro on the Windows side. The computer yawns and asks me whether I don't have something else for it to do. It's bored.

A caution and a couple of nits. When I first brought it home from the store, I plugged in all my peripherals and started things up and got a blank screen. I thought I had a dead Thunderbolt monitor. Got some advice from the guy at the computer store. We plugged one peripheral in at a time and everything has worked fine since then.

I got the Promise R6 RAID enclosure. This is also quite nice but a little noisier than the silent Mac Pro. I guess one can't run 6 hard disks in silence.

Remember when Apple's ads were "It Just Works?" That's my experience with this one. I can work without worrying about my computer getting in the way. I love it. One last thing--it was the easiest migration I've ever had--I've only had to reinstall the printer/scanner drivers for a Brother MFC. Otherwise everything came over including all my Word autocorrect entries and all my document templates. Sweet!
