    I'm slobbering, my Mac Pro just arrived.
    Yeah, its late, but it just arrived (its 10PM??).

    My new Mac Pro

    8,500 for the following:

    * Two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
    * 16GB (8 x 2GB)
    * NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 512MB, Stereo 3D (2 x dual-link DVI)
    * 250GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s
    * Two 16x SuperDrives
    * Both Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and AirPort Extreme
    * Apple Keyboard & Mighty Mouse - British (wireless)
    * Mac OS X (English)
    * Apple Cinema HD Display (30" flat panel)
    * Apple Cinema HD Display (30" LCD)

    * Five USB ports
    * Two FireWire 400 ports
    * Two FireWire 800 ports

    I deserve a good computer Its also about 600 less because it (along with the displays) smells slightly smoky.

    Its absolutely amazing! Although I probably won't be able to get a new computer for the next century (although part of it was from a distant aunty who left me cash :O)

    I'm flogging my old iMac at the mo btw.

    Are you sure your able to handle it? I mean it would be possible to have a serious accident with that machine that could result in serious injury!

    I think I'm going to let video/photo/audio editors hire it, they can just bring their media and hook it up in my front room (which looks very proffessional, just the MacPro, the iMac and a projector in there with white walls).

    I'm broke now until my pay cheque comes :O

    Knowing my luck, a brand new technology will come out tomorrow, outperforming my Mac Pro by many miles and it'll be cheap!

    I wouldn't worry too much. Even when something does outperform it, it'll still be one smokin' fast computer. My dual-core G5 got outmoded pretty fast but it still beats the #$%^ out of all my friends' computers.

    Wow, that's awesome. That's the price of a cheap car.
