    Specs:
    MacPro 2.93 GHz - 10.6.8
    Which UPS System for Mac Pro?
    I will be getting a Mac Pro 3.33GHz soon, and need to find the right UPS System. I will be connecting the Mac Pro with an external HD.

    I want to have a UPS system that will provide protection for the above devices, with enough protection to spare for several other devices (a second external HD, iBook G4, and an older computer, SE/30)

    Also, I need a UPS system that will automatically save, then shut down, for times I'm not at the computer during a power outage.

    Any suggestions? I'd like to keep the price around $200-300 if possible.

    Have a look on apc.com ... I believe they have the Powerchute software that can monitor their UPS's and shutdown your PC in an orderly fashion.

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Looks like they only sell the batteries for the UPS systems. I called, but they are closed on the weekends.

    They do sell complete power solutions, not just batteries.
