just tellin you guys of a wonderful mac story, so i was browsing through some online classified ads, and i saw this ad for a mac pro, no price stated, so i drove down to the place to take a look at it, when i got there the lady selling it told me she had just gotten divorced and that her husband had boughten a computer right before the divorce, and had never used it, and left it at the house. so lo and behold i go down to see an unopend mac pro and i ask her how much, she said her husband had spent a fourtune on it and just wanted to see it gone lol so she said how does 300$ sound! and i am the proud new owner of a 300$ mac pro, thats right, 300 mac pro!, btw its a 2.8GHz twin Quad-Core
2GB ram
ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
and 320 gb hdd

i am still deciding if i should keep it or sell it

That's a crazy good deal. Did he leave a Corvette by chance? Smile

I'd personally keep the Mac Pro. You will never in a lifetime have another opportunity to buy one at that price. You'll always be able to earn more money.

Deal of the year right there. If you have all the other stuff (screen, keyboard, etc) then I'd keep it. If not, sell it and buy an MBP

That is amazing Shocked Just think how much faster handbrake must run on that setup.

Keep it and upgrade the ram, or I'll give you $500 Wink if you don't want it taking up space.
