I´m about to pull the trigger on a used 2009 8x2,26 Mac Pro for 2000€. It´s from a
dealer who checked it.
The other option would be to get the new 6core but thats 3000€. Benchmarks give both machines similar results. Also the additional ram slots on the 8core are a plus. And it officially runs Snow Leopard.
I´m still a bit nervous to buy such an old computer. It seems new desktops are coming 2013 but I can´t wait.
Any reason to buy the 6core I didnt think of?
I´ll be using it for postproduction with Pro Tools and music with Logic.
Thanks for your advise!
