A few days ago I was in the Apple store buying something for my iPod and I was looking at the new Mac Pros. I realized Macintosh computers have come a long way since I owned a Mac 10 years ago. (In case you?re wondering I had a Macintosh PowerBook 540c back in 1995). Anyway I decided to price out a new Mac Pro, so here?s what I want if you haven’t found me a Christmas present yet! After all said and done it looks like its going to cost $19,223.95 but don?t get discouraged quite yet because? (drum roll please)? IT QUALIFIES FOR FREE SHIPPING!

Detailed specs are below (for all you nerds) but basically it?s a new Mac Pro with Two 3.0GHz dual core processors, 16 gigs of RAM, Four 750MB hard drives for a total of 3 Terabytes, a crazy graphics card, 2 30inch flat panel Apple Cinema HD displays, a Bose speaker system, and all the other bells and whistles you would expect from a computer that costs as much as a new Honda Civic!

Mac Pro Specs:

-Two 3.0GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors (that?s quad-core performance from two 3 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon ?Woodcrest? processors)
-16GB OF RAM (that?s 8 x 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 fully buffered ECC RAM)
-Four Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive bays each with a 750GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s hard drive (that?s 3 terabytes of data storage)
-NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 512MB, Stereo 3D (2 x dual-link DVI) graphics cards (that?s fast)
-2 30″ flat panel Apple Cinema HD Displays (that?s huge)
-Two 16x SuperDrives
-Both Bluetooth 2.0+ EDR and AirPort Extreme
-Fibre Channel Card (To connect to an Xserve RAID)
-Apple Wireless Keyboard and Apple wireless Mighty Mouse
