Apple unveiled the new Mac Pro computers in early March. The new Apple Mac Pro 2009 are based on the Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Nehalem" CPUs and the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 with 512MB. There are two new Mac Pro computers to choose from. The Quad-Core Mac Pro starts at $2,499 and the 8-Core Mac Pro (2x Nehalem) starts at $3,299.
Macworld has published a review of both new Mac Pro machines.
Quote from the review: "The new Mac Pros, with their cutting-edge Nehalem processor technology, are able to execute more tasks at a faster clip, despite lower processor speeds. And their new internal design makes adding hard drives, memory cards, and PCI Express 2.0 cards easier than ever. Apple’s most expandable Mac is the pro platform for power users. With its improved graphics, memory bandwidth, and reduced memory latency, the 2.66GHz quad-core Mac Pro was faster than the 2.8GHz eight-core Mac Pro, and at $2,499 costs $300 less. It would be a fine purchase for anyone replacing an older Mac or buying a new one for the first time. That is especially true for people who work with processor intensive apps such as video or graphics."
