Maybe for the price of that one buy two Windows PCs each with a 3.2 Ghz..
That way you can have two items running at once - LOL ;)
and maybe a fancy Iphone that you can work on the web while out caching.
LOL - Actually havent done anything with a Mac so not sure what it will run.

I suspected as much about slowing down over time and all that. I did see
that the new Mac was hacked in a jiffy and the guy got the 10K prize.
Still, that 8 core Mac Pro running 2  3.2Ghz Intel   Quad-Core  Xeon
processors IS  interesting and FAST. I just dont think I do do all the
stuff I do on the Mac software. I may go to the apple store today just
to look anyway. I think I can afford the fancy case if they take all the
guts out.  It is easily more than twice, nearly 3 times what I want to
spend on an unnecessary  toy. I could by a lot of GPS's for that.
