    Cool for a work computer but 2.8ghz and 2gb memory is pretty weak for a mac pro.

    ;)

    You'll want at least another 2GB, though 4GB is the prefered option due to price and future expansion consideration.

    My 2.4ghz Duo Core iMac with 4gigs, 320gb 7200 HD, ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro W/256 mb video, and 16X Superdrive is looking pretty good right now for half the price. :) ;)

    When (if) that Mac Pro gets built it'll be nice.

    I don't understand why people always ask for pics of Macs. They all look the same. I can see if it were a custom PC build, but you're just going to see the same Mac Pro and Cinema Display that you see everywhere else. :dunno:

    Photos of the unboxing process (not just on Apple products) also baffle me. People really enjoy seeing that? Photos of setups I can understand as you can get ideas from them.

    lol at the complaints about processor speed and video card memory. for a business, i'm sure he'll never use a fraction of the horsepower that machine has.

    Shit I wish my boss would buy me a Mac Pro for work. Unfortunately, the Marine Corps doesn't really have a need for Macs. Instead, they LEASE shitty Dells. :ugh2: No go figure that one out.

    congrats, you have two reasonably nice quad-core processors and a lot of other crap wrapped around them.

    But the way the military works, they pay $$$$ for the lease, plus maintenance.
