    How much more powerful would this be
    I do not currently own a mac but am in love with the OS and really want to buy one. Im not really strapped with cash at the moment and I dont want the mini or an imac. I did some searching on ebay and found a mac pro priced at $1100.

    A1186
    2x 2.0GHz Dual-Core Xeon (4-core)
    1GB RAM
    160GB HARD DRIVE
    DVDRW - SUPERDRIVE
    NVIDIA 7300GT

    My current computer is one I built a few years back and its specs are.
    AMD athlon 3800+x2
    2 gigs ram
    Nvidia 9800GT


    My other question is in the future would I be able to upgrade the processors that are currently in this mac pro I might buy with quad core ones so I could have 8 cores.

    Specs:
    Macbook Unibody 2.26 Dual, 2GB RAM, 250 GB HDD
    A quad core Xeon, I would think, is powerful yes lol.

    2 Quad-core Xeons? Yeah, that's powerful. Put it to good use, though, and pilot some space ships. Or perhaps you could control 300 remote control cars in a mini city, and have them all obey traffic laws. Or both, while listening to music.

    You can probably upgrade them if you really want to. After all, they'll be slightly obsolete in 10 years or so.

    I would definitely upgrade to 10,000 cores.
