State odf the art or Old Skool. Take a look inside the Mac Pro and tell me what are your likes and dislikes.
Seems to me, they need to work on a few things!
Inside of a Mac Pro
Ok after careful analysis and me being a hardware lover. I Honestly dont see why they went with LGA775 Xeons that are probably years old like the ram. Who the hell uses 512 MB anymore. The simple fact that Apple doesnt add **** to their operating system merits their excuse to continue running 512 MB of RAM. I would think running two DC Xeons that you would put at the least 2GB ..especially if you planned on running this in a server environment.
Although its somewhat nice, the cooling is overkill and a clear sign that the Xeon CPU's being used are NOT the latest ones because if they we're they'd need a little less cooling like the Conroes. The case design sucks and hasnt changed since OSX came out. If you wanna know the truth ..this thing has OLD School written all over it. Theres nothing i like about it and im sure if i added a lil more ram to mine and Dual 7950's to mine ..id wipe my ass with that mac
. Apple needs to just get outta the pc/computer business and continue making what they are good at... ipods
