I know a clinic near my area where you can get $5,000 for donating one of your testicles...
It might be worth it for a 8 core Mac Pro...

But if you want the top configuration (2x 3.0ghz quad, 4x750gb HD's, 16gig memory, 2 dual 30" screens best graphics card etc.) you're gonna need 4 testicles! Maybe you could share it with a friend...

Yeah, I just counted to make sure... rats!

anyone wanna go in on one?

You'd almost have to max it completely out to um, compensate for your losses.

My gosh, though, that is one heck of a machine...

I thought a new form-factor was expected? This looks like the same case as the 2x2 processor Mac Pro.

And I wonder how much benefit you'll really get from the 8 processors before Leopard is released.

And in other news today, Microsoft announced that it will partner with an as-yet unnamed PC builder to create the world's first quad-core processor computer sometime in 2012.

I'm with you. I won't be investing until I can get at least 64 gig of RAM. That thing is a toy.

STEP IT UP APPLE!! :yinyang:

No price changes. Only thing new is you can get dual quad cores @ 3.0 gigs.

No graphics card updates, literally nothing else other than a processor selection.

Keep it, Apple. :radioacti

1) Powerbook G4 12" 1.5 GHz, iWork, Ilife 06, Logic Pro, Office 2K4
2) A PC with a bunch of stuff in it.
