Maxed Out New Mac Pro Requires Car Loan


Maxed Out New Mac Pro Requires Car Loan

The Apple Store is a fun place to dream. Unfortunately, my orders usually end being the lowest end configuration. For example, if I were to buy the Mac Pro, the lowest price option would be $2,299.00. But what would the price tag be if I allowed myself to dream a little? I configured the new Mac Pro with the best options possible. The price tag? A whopping $27,340.90! Here’s what you get:

    My work got me one with a 30inch monitor, 5gig ram, 8core, 1tb of harddrive. Not as hardcore as above but its quick!

    I just put together an order like this and saved my shopping cart. I got a call from apple offering me special pricing. If you go for stuff like this, call in and you can get a deal.

    I would have left out the fiber channel and RAID cards and add 3 more video cards and 6 additional 30″ displays, but that’s just me.

    What would really throw this over the top would be the inclusion of some serious graphics cards. I’d say 4 8800Ultras would do the trick, if only the Mac Pro supported quad-SLI. Atleast Apple is making some progress by including the 8800GT under the available GPUs, that’s a step in the right direction.
