Crap! Buy the 2010 model if you can and try to get it without bent handles or scratches!
7 December 2013
Summary: I was going to buy one of these awesome machines for $650 but almost all of them are bent or scratched! I mean really I get it that it doesn't effect the performance but what the hell do these people do to these machines besides use them? Beat the hell out of them?
Summary: I got this desktop thru Amazon, because I got tired of the HP products; I kept putting on the side, getting the apple products because the price, but I have to say, I knocked out a few HP's before I said enough is enough.
Summary: I purchased this for a master's degree program because I wanted a stable operating system and a robust tower computer. I was a long time Windows hold out, but after a couple weeks, I was comfortable with the Mac OS.
Summary: Beware, OS X 10.7.3 May be pre Installed... You may need to Buy an upgrade to 10.8 Mountain Lion if You need or want it. I Bought one of these 12 core Mac Pro's on 6/10/13 from Amazon.com LLC.
Almost obsolete item that Apple has promised will be updated in 2013

Summary: This 12 core Mac Pro released in 2010 still can do the job even if it is past it's 'used by' date. This replaces my G5 tower. You will want to be sure your software can take advantage of all 12 cores, otherwise you are money and time ahead buying a four core model that runs at a higher clock speed.
Summary: Why anyone would fork over 4000 dollars for this piece of junk is beyond me. You could custom build a super computer or buy a gaming PC that would bury this "Pro" in seconds for less than half the cost.
Summary: When I connected this Mac pro to a CinemaView CV24A the login screen went black and this was consistent with every power-on. Upon calling Apple about this problem their engineers said that the problem is with CinemaView; well they said that their firmware was up to date.
Summary: This New 12 Core Processor is more than I expected.... I've been using the IMAC I3 computer since 2010 and was very satisfied with the performance; my main purpose for the unit was audio production for my Home Studio with Logic Pro.
