    Known issues for the Mac Pro?
    I've been considering upgrading to a used iMac or Mac Pro for the past few weeks. While following several ebay auctions I've found that the iMac selling prices are fairly consistent. The Mac Pro auctions, on the other hand have varied wildly in selling price.

    I was curious if there some insider info that I'm unaware of? For example, some Mac Pro configurations might have known problems, causing them to sell for a cheaper price (my 2007 Macbook Pro with the bad Nvidia chip comes to mind).

    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.11.1.
    The only limitation with a Mac Pro is that Mac Pro 1.1 and 2.1 models are unable to run Mountain Lion and this has caused a drop to around the $600.00 mark. Also consider the Mac Pro specs vary greatly.

    Download and use a little Application called Mactracker to learn things like bench tests, hardware and connections.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
