The Apple Referb. Store has two 3.33 GHz Mac Pro's
on sale for the same price. One is a Quad Core and
the other is a HEX Core. Common sense would dictate
the Hex is the way to go. Why are they the same price?
What have I missed. I'm guessing the Quad must be
maxed out with HD's and software and such though it
looks like it has an older Graphics Card. What do y'all
think?

Dunno why the price parity. The hex is 2010 and the quad is 2009, I'd go with the hex...but it is OOS.

Thats what I thought. Last year I came close to
buying a Quad Core buy couldn't quite afford it.
Because I waited till this year I think I'll be able
to swing a Hex Core. If thats what happens I
may get a bit depressed for not buying a 2010
or 2011 Alumini.
