Should I go for it?getPosted: June 20, 2009
I’ve been using my 2.66 duel-core Intel Xeon Macpro since September 2006, and during the past couple of months I’ve been struggling with the HD’s, for example the original HD died and I had to replace it with 2 new 1 TB HD’seach, and just yesterday one of them past away! also few moths ago I lost my 512 mb Video card too and now working on a 256 mb card, I’m telling it sucks, so is my Macpro trying to give me signals here? should I replace it with a new one? I don’t now if I should or not but calculating all the upgrade I need to do with it is almost as much as buying a new one, I to upgrade the following:
- get more RAM, now I have 2 GB and I wont at least 4 GB so that mean I should get 2 MB more.
- Get a new 512 MB graphic card.
- newer HD’s, I don’t trust the ones I have any more.
- bigger monitor, were talking here 23″ to 24″
calculating all that is just too much, and add on that I need to get my kids a computer for the net, they are using now my old iMac
and since my home has only wireless network, they don’t have internet and they can’t even connect they digital cameras to it, becouse the OS is too old, I know, I know, I’ll do something about it it, thats why I’m thinking of getting a new one too.
so here is my proposal to my self buy a new iMac for my self and give them (my kids) my formated Macpro, what do you think?
here is the one I like:
- 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
- 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM – 2x2GB
- 1.0TB Serial ATA Drive
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 512MB
Price: $2,199 plus tax
