Apple Mac Pro (8-Core)

 

The Apple Mac Pro (8-Core) is the performance dream PC of the creative professional. If you get one, just make sure you have programs that will take advantage of the extra power.

Easy expansion. Eight-core power. High-end graphics. Looks like the old Mac Pros, so co-workers won't get jealous

Performance boost isn't as impressive on day-to-day tasks as you'd think. Big and bulky. Windows performance outpaces Mac OS X performance on the same task. Only 90 days of phone tech support

Apple Mac Pro 3GHz 8-core power PC

World exclusive: Apple's 8-core Mac Pro

 

Apple's brand-new 8-core Mac Pro is the first to offer Intel's 3GHz quad-core chips, but what's really impressive about it may surprise you.

Faster than other 8-core systems. Low price. Well-designed case.

Lack of pro-level 3D card options.

Quad-core chips aside, the only other new addition to the Mac Pro is the option of up to four 750GB hard drives, for a total of 3TB of 3Gbps Serial ATA storage -- up from 2TB (four 500GB drives) on older models

Product Specifications

Whether you're editing feature films or scoring them, composing symphonies or visualizing mass spectrometry analyses, Mac Pro makes it easier than ever to create your personal dream machine: A powerful system that not only meets your needs today but, thanks to an ingeniously designed enclosure, expands easily to meet tomorrow's challenges as well.
