lets ignore new and just look at what 4 core refurbished macpros cost between US and UK.
4 core nehalem 2.66 macpro US refurbished :
2,039.00 USD = 1,254.63 GBP
4 core nehalem 2.88 macpro UK refurbished :
1,735.00 GBP = 2,819.58 USD
these machines are completely out of whack ? both in the US and the UK theyre pricing themselves too high but the translation in price across the pond is just nuts, they need to make a cheaper case design, and start putting something other than xeons in these machines, because these are not recession linked mac desktops ?
its like £480 cheaper in the states and thats refurb and its still 1735 pounds for a base machine ? i swear theyre trying to kill the macpro line off buy making it too expensive ?
uk price new :
base price for the cheapest 4 core new macpro based on old nehalem 2.8ghz £2,041.00 !!!!!
for a 4 core westmere £2,859.00 !!! wtf !
us price new :
base price for the cheapest 4 core new macpro based on old nehalem 2.8ghz $2,499.00
for a 4 core westmere $3,499.00 !!! wtf !
aigh dunno buying a desktop mac is now out of most peoples league. steve get a grip you to ives.
