Today, Apple refreshed its Mac Pro line, adding a new 8-core monster using Intel's new quad-core Xeon processors. There was also a new quad-core model was introduced. The configuration for the new Mac Pros includes two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors, with 1GB DDR2 RAM expandable to 16GB, a 250GB hard drive, NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics card, and a 16x SuperDrive are also included.
The base price for that model will be $3,997. The new 3.0GHz quad-core model, using two Intel Xeon processors, will retail for $3,298. The new models are the first refresh to the Mac Pro since Apple introduced the Intel-based lineup in August of last year. I wish I could get one, but they are just a little too pricey for me right now.
