Top of the Line Mac Goes for $17,024

Apple is a Logo!Were you the ultimate Apple Fanboy, or perhaps just a serious computer user who understands that if your system doesn’t require it’s own generator, it’s just not powerful enough, then you may be satisfied in knowing that the best Mac Pro you can buy is more expensive than not one, but three different models of V-dub.

In order to drop a full year of college tuition, you’ll need to vie for the Mac Pro itself plug these additional upgrades:

  • Two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors (that’s an 8-core, for those of you dual-corists out there who think you’re tough).
  • 16 Gigs of RAM
  • Four 750GB hard drives
  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 512MB, Stereo 3D (2 x dual-link DVI) graphics card
  • Two 30″ Apple Cinema HD Displays
  • Two 16x SuperDrives, for those times when one CD/DVD combo drive just isn’t enough…
  • Both Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and AirPort Extreme
  • Quad-channel 4Gb Fibre Channel PCI Express card
  • Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mighty Mouse
  • Mac OS X (helpful to have an OS with our machine…)
  • AppleCare Protection Plan for Mac Pro/Power Mac
  • Complete inability to grapple the concept of reality
