Refurb Mac Pros return
Reconditioned Mac Pro systems have returned to Apple's online store for as little as $2,199, offering cost-conscious professional shoppers a less expensive alternative to the company's brand new models with the same one-year warranty. Refurbished professional desktops currently include a 'low-end' system and a faster, pricier model. The refurbished Mac Pro Quad 2.66GHz Intel Xeon system is shipping with two 2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors, 1GB of system memory, a 250GB 7200RPM SATA hard drive, and an NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics card with 256MB of video memory for $2,199. The higher-end refurbished system is a Mac Pro Quad 3.0GHz Intel Xeon model with two 3.0GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors, 2GB of system memory, a 250GB 7200RPM SATA hard drive, and an ATI Radeon X1900 XT graphics card with 512MB of video memory for $3,299. Apple is also offering a refurbished Power Mac G5 Quad 2.5GHz with two dual-core 2.5GHz PowerPC G5 processors, 512MB of system memory, a 250GB SATA hard drive, and an NVIDIA GeForce 6600 graphics card with 256MB of video memory for $2,699. As always all Apple refurbished items come with free shipping.
