presenting a poor man's Mac Pro and LED Cinema Display
It has been almost four years since I use my slow iMac (24-inch, 2.33 Core 2 Duo) as the main computer. It is about time to upgrade. According to my blog entry, it was just 5 days short of 4 years.
The first brown box arrived on Tuesday, and the second (main) box arrived yesterday. I patiently waited for the main box to arrive before I open the first brown box.
(as usual, more photos follow...)
Before I open up the two heavy boxes (weigh 13 kg and 28 kg), I decided to take a photo of my current, well, I meant, the "before" setup.
Please excuse the messiness of my tiny office. Unlike Don, I don't have a huge office.
Somehow, I have a feeling that Don would be very interested in the specs. So here it is, the Mac Pro is the lowest model of the 12-Core options. (To Don: Antony is poor!) The only changes on the main machine's configuration I made was upgrading the graphic card from ATI Radeon HD 5770 to ATI Radeon HD 5870.
Comparing to any of my other Macs, this Mac Pro is really fast! And the 27-inch LED Cinema Display is really a beauty.
Upgrading RAM and adding more HDDs will be my next task.
(to Don: Antony is poor.)
