8 core Mac Pro

8 core mac pro

Well took delivery of my new computer – thought I would post a few comments about the flagship Pro Mac.

Likes:

  • Blisteringly fast – startup takes just 10 seconds
  • Amazing Build quality – and the case is designed for upgradability
  • Firewire 800 on the front of the machine – perfect for fast ad-hoc backups
  • Dislikes:

  • The machine is huge – absolutely massive.
  • No built in wireless – forgot to order that as an extra – now I have to get an engineer to fit one – or I void my warranty
  • The cost – a basic spec 8 core is 2700 quid – and only comes with 1GB of ram – you need at least 2GB to run Vista – I put 3GB in there
  • mac pro open case
