    Everyone seems to been keen on a maxed out MAc Pro and the comment oon it being worth more than someone's car peaked my interest. So here's a config for a Mac Pro "maxed out" with hardware upgrades only, no peripherals or software:

    Processor: Two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
    Memory: 16GB (8 x 2GB)
    Mac Pro RAID Card
    Hard Drives for EACH of the 4 bays: 750GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s
    Graphics: NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 512MB, Stereo 3D (2 x dual-link DVI)
    Optical drives for BOTH bays: 16x SuperDrives
    wireless connectivity: Both Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and AirPort Extreme
    Fibre channel card: Quad-channel 4Gb Fibre Channel PCI Express card

    Total: $14,366!!

    Yep, worth more than my car is now worth! And if you want to get really crazy and include ALL options for this "single purchase":

    Display: 2 Apple Cinema HD Displays (30" flat panel)
    Modem: Apple USB Modem (as a goof!)
    Inputs: Apple Wireless Keyboard and Apple wireless Mighty Mouse
    OS: Mac OS X Server (Unlimited-Client)
    Software (could only choose one): Final Cut Express HD preinstalled
    .Mac: 1-year basic membership

    Total: $19,436.95!!!

    There ya go, MattSharp, Enjoy!!

    Wow - $19,436.95!!!! If that exceeds the cost of your car (usually the second most expensive purchase right behind a house) then it is time to clean out your garage and park the new Mac inside the garage (in a place of honor of course).
