    I bet most of you have heard of the Mac Pro, but the way it could really rock would be:

    If it used an actual 8-core Processor instead of 2 quad-cores (like the PS3, which is actaully 9-core)

    And

    If it used XDR RAM which clocks at like 3.2GHz (this is also in the ps3) because current Mac Pro RAM is @ 800MHz

    This would truly rock

    Nope, I was being serious.
    I have never thought highly of the Mac Pros since I saw an Asus MoBo with dual CPU sockets. DDR3 ram and 2x Q9550 Intels would probably slap the infamous $27k Mac Pro that twats go on the Apple site and make. I would think anyone willing to spend that much on a computer should atleast have some computer knowledge and decide they would build there own.

    Before someone tells me they are Xeons, Xeons are usually just normal Intels with a few changes.

    Aye, but this is a Mac Pro, not a Macbook.

    They're actually really customizable. It's not the computer that's overpriced, it's the upgrades. Upgrade the processor and graphics card, and get the ram yourself. It costs roughly 1300 for the ram if you buy from a 3rd party as compared to the 9100 from apple.
