My System Specs

Default

Just look at some of the upgrade prices on the MacPro portion of the Apple website.

32GB of memory, add $975 -- and we're talking about either 1066 or 1333 Ram, this isn't superfast 2133 Ram.

It comes stock with a 1TB HDD. An extra 512MB SSD is $1000. An extra 2TB 7200rpm HDD is $300.

Which is actually reasonable compared to the extra super-multi drive you can have installed for $100. And when I say super-multi, I don't mean BD-R, I mean DVD-RW. A DVD writer goes for, what? $20 on NCIX?

Hell, to add another 5770 in order to run X-fire 5770s you have to add $250. For one extra 5770. WTF?

Seriously, if Mac Pro users don't see that they're getting ripped off, (especially in the light that Protools runs on Windows now) then they're idiots.
