Well, for those of you Mac fans out there, the beast is now here! The new Mac Pro's have been announced and are available for order immediately.

I figured, what the heck, I've been looking for a video system and this looks like it would fit the bill nicely. 2 Dual-Core Xeon's, 2TB of storage, 16GB RAM, ... All starting at $2499! Sounds good. A bit of a streatch dollar wise, but probably worth it for that spec.

So, I hopped over to The Apple Store to customize my new Mac Pro. Of coarse, I upgraded the CPU(s), RAM, and Storage to the max. I also added the Fibre Channel Card, The USB Modem, The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 (2 x dual-link DVI) graphics, 2 30-inch HD Cinema displays, dual SuperDrives, Bluetooth, and Airport Extreme wireless, Keyboard and mouse, some software, and the AppleCare Protection Plan.

All ready to check out until I saw the updated cart info...

Can you believe this??? The Free Shipping offer was very generous, but there's no way I can wait 2-4 weeks for my system to arrive. Oh well, I'll have to keep looking...
