"Both Beauty and a Beast! Brilliant Design! Frighteningly Fast!"5.0 starson by user_99
Pros: SPEED!, upgrade options, design, performance, price.
Cons: Weight... over 40lbs
Summary: This machine is a beast! I just picked mine up about three days ago at the local apple store. I cannot believe how fast this system is. I have a few other dual proc systems in my studio that I just recently purchased in February and June, and this out performs all of them by leaps and bounds. Not only am I impressed by the design and configuration of the hardware, but I am also blown away by the Operating System. What an amazing OS! I intend to replace all of my PCs with these new MacPros. The only drawback for me is the weight of the system. I have a bad shoulder and lifting this hefty machine out of the box was no picnic. Other than that, I have absolutely no complaints! This is one beautiful system.
