Price drop! Mac Pro 5,1 (2010/Westmere) 8x2.4GHz w/ Applecare - $2000

Buy with confidence: This Mid-2010 Mac Pro is still covered by AppleCare (expires Feb 14, 2014). Very well maintained, regularly cleaned for dust since the first day. Passes Apple Hardware Test. Original box, manuals, discs, etc. available.

Carbon Computing sells a similar model (without the upgrades below) for $2800+tax; most benchmarks for the new Mac Pro are using highly-upgraded rigs costing upwards of $7000. This is a good choice for power users not ready to replace all their drives with Thunderbolt & USB 3 enclosures but who need some solid multithreaded processing power!

Located in Toronto, asking $2500. Would prefer to transact in person.

Benchmark results:
- 32-bit Geekbench: Mac Pro (Mid 2010) - Geekbench Browser
- 64-bit Geekbench: Mac Pro (Mid 2010) - Geekbench Browser
- Cinebench R15: see images

Upgraded specs:
- 24GB OWC RAM (Lifetime Warranty) + 4GB Apple RAM = 28GB RAM total
- ATI Radeon HD 5870 w/ 1GB GDDR5 (two Mini DisplayPorts + 1 Dual-link DVI)
- Mac OS X 10.9.1 'Mavericks' installed

Standard specs:
- MacPro5,1 aka A1289 or MC561LL/A
- 2 x 2.4 GHz Quad Core 45-nm Xeon E5620 (Westmere) processors
- 1 TB (7200 RPM, 32 MB cache) 3Gb/s Serial ATA hard drive
- 18X dual-layer "SuperDrive"
- 5x USB 2.0 ports (2 on front)
- 4x Firewire "800" ports (2 on front)
- 2x Gigabit Ethernet
- AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n)
- Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
- Apple Aluminum Keyboard (if you don't need this I'll take $55 off)
- Magic Mouse
- see Mac Pro "Eight Core" 2.4 (2010/Westmere) Specs (Mid-2010, MC561LL/A, MacPro5,1, A1289, 2314-2) @ for more

- Slight scratch on the removable panel (see picture)
- Crack on Magic Mouse - the surface is still completely smooth and it functions normally (see picture)
- One of the PCI slot covers has been misplaced. If this is a concern, I can try to source a replacement

Optional extras (free!):
- 2 x 1GB PC3-8500 DDR3 ECC Apple RAM modules - pulled these out to install the OWC ones.
- NewerTech MAXPower eSATA 6G PCEe 2.0 RAID Card - I stopped using this and uninstalled it, but it should still work.
