In October 2012 I purchased a Mac Pro MD770LL/A from Amazon through a work account. It boasts a 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor, an ATI Radeon HD 5770 Graphics card, and a Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB HD. I'd hoped to hold out until they upgraded the product line again, but current news puts that at somewhere in 2013. My previous Apple Power Mac G5 motherboard failed recently, and since it was my primary work computer, I couldn't put off upgrading any longer. I don't do much if any video editing, so didn't see the need to get the 6 core or dual processor models. Budget was a consideration as well -- Mac Pros aren't cheap. I'm primarily a graphic designer who uses Adobe Photoshop and the rest of the Creative Suite (CS6) to get my varied print and web projects done; along with QuarkXpress for page layout and Office for the Mac. For these needs this Mac Pro is more than up to the task.
My old 24" Cinema Display was still working, but since it is about 8 years old and uses the old ADC connector, I didn't think it was worth purchasing the $300+ adapter for it. There are several 3rd party monitors that looked good and were cheaper or close to $1K, but I decided to go with Mac again, and bought the 27" Cinema Display. While its glossiness can be distracting, I keep my office dark so that isn't really an issue.Read more ›
Any SATA drive will fit into any of the four carriers, though they are not the same length as the older versions of this machine, so you cannot just take them out of the older machine and slip them into the new one, you have to use the new version's carrier slides. This means installing a drive takes five minutes not one.. :)
So, if you need two optical drives, four 4TB hard drives and two monitors, use a bluetooth device and use wifi to connect this machine does it all.
The reason I wanted to post a review already is to explain why I chose the Mac Pro over the iMac.
This new Mac Pro is my fifth Apple computer. My current Mac is an iMac 24inches Intel Core 2 Duo. Before that, I had a G4 tower, with a Motorola chip.
I bought the G4 in 1999 and believe it or not, this Mac is still running as of today. All my Macs are turned on 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for almost all year long. I only shut them down when I go away from home for more than 3 days, which means around 3-4 times a year. They are both set up to go to sleep after 1 hour of idle time. So my G4 is now close to 14 years old (the cost is well written off by now!) and I never had one issue with it. Not a single glitch either with the RAM, the hard disk, the mother board or anything else.
As opposed to my iMac (bought in june 2006) that is a bit over 6 years old now, costed me less than the G4 but is already showing signs of malfunction. As an example, five days ago, I was using HandBrake to convert a movie and all of a sudden, it froze and gave me a blue screen... First time ever I see this on a Mac. I had to kill it by holding down the power button, but when I restarted, everything was fine. All kinds of strange bugs like that happen over the last few months.
So I decided that if the iMac dies, I will not have it fixed and based on my experience with the G4, I decided to go for the Mac Pro, hoping that it will be as reliable. You may say what's the point of keeping a computer for so long, since the technology evolves so fast.Read more ›
