Summary: After years of waiting/saving and serendipitously having a career requirement to upgrade my computer, I finally made the investment in this desktop. I know this is the lower-end model of the Mac Pros at the time, but it is definitely fulfilling my needs.
Good, not great - Always something with this machine

Summary: I use this computer with 16GB of ram primarily for photoshop and final cut. I have problems with both unexpectedly closing whenever this diva of a machine doesn't want to render simple filters.
Summary: I just don't see what the rave is about on the MACpros .This is not money well spent, I have this at work for about 3 months now and all I can say is "that's it?" for 2.5K it only has 3gigs of ram and it is the base entrance level pile of poop Ram, don't bother scoring your system it isn't worth...
Summary: First things first...this computer is fast. I have been using a 2007 Macbook Pro and 2010 iMac along with a with a expensive Windows rig for awhile now... and this computer blows them away. I use Adobe Illustrator, Soundbooth, and Premiere Pro on a daily basis on it and it works great.
Summary: I read a lot of reviews on here about how happy people were to move up from their PowerMac G5s but when I tried it I didn't see what the big deal was about. My PowerMac is about 8 years old and for the most part it runs really well.
Summary: I got the MacPro to edit home videos, so I also got Final Cut Pro. I expected the machine to be fast, which it is. But I was concerned that it would be noisy. It is NOT noisy; quiet in fact. I use the MacPro with a 24-inch LED display. The combination is GREAT.
This is about the MP, but mostly about Amazon's amazing customer service

Summary: A lot of this has to be abridged for confidentiality purposes. I am working on a project of genuinely historic significance (designed to make a huge impact on America's most underserved geographic community). The total cost of the project will end up in 9 figures.
