Mac Pros Duplicated: Savings Up To $4,078

  • Everyone knows that Apple TOTALLY hoses people on RAM and HD's [which adds 5297 to the cost].

    Use the same 3rd party HD and RAM in the MacPro, and suddenly the cost difference is 4078 - 5297 + (1064 + 420) = $265 more expensive

    And somehow I think MacOSX can use those 8 CPU's a lot better than WinXP.
