    Re: New Mac Pros: 8-core!

    The $3,997 price mentioned in MacWorld is quite competitive. Dell's base price on their 490 workstation is about $4,500... I priced one with 8 gigs ram and a couple 250 gig raid 0 satas for around $6K. And they're only spec'd with dual quad-core 2.66 ghz Xenon X5355's.

    Interesting "music and audio" feature in the "performance" section (middle part of page, under video section)

    True. But bear in mind this $4,000 configuration only comes with 1GB RAM and 250GB HDD.
    Before you can really take advantage of the 8 cores, you will have to put a lot of extra money into upgrading RAM and HDD. You would probably also want to upgrade the video card.
