Apple quietly bumps some Mac Pro and Xserve BTO options


Recommended Posts


Apple has added new build-to-order options for some of its Mac Pro and Xserve models. Specifically, a 3.33GHz 3500-series Xeon processor is now an option for the lower-end quad-core Mac Pro. Also, Apple now offers a 2TB drive option for both Mac Pros and Xserves.

That's right, for a whopping $1,200, you can bump your quad-core Mac Pro to a 3.33Ghz Nehalem-based Xeon processor—the 8-core Mac Pro still maxes out at 2.93GHz. You'll still be able to brag that you have the "fastest and most powerful Mac ever," though for that kind of scratch you could buy two 27" 2.66Ghz Core i5 iMacs with relatively comparable performance for most tasks and a total of two 27" 2560x1440 screens. Or, save yourself over a grand and get just a single 2.8GHz Core i7-based 27" iMac, and use the extra ducats for a Drobo, a wicked-awesome Epson printer, a trip to the Bahamas, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
