Oh, the Mac Pro. Device of people who really need to crank out resource-intensive projects. It’s what some video editors prefer for editing their movies, and what some designers love for working on magazines and other work. It’s also the price of a used car, and with the latest update, a grand more expensive than the last car I bought.
That cost can seem a bit prohibitive, and it can be frustrating if you need the power. Fortunately, you can save a few bucks if you don’t mind using a bit older technology. That’s because like many Apple products, once the new ones go out into the world, the old models go up for sale at a discount.
That’s only partially true with the Mac Pros. The best deal you can find is on a Mac Pro with the dual 2.25GHz 8-core Intel Xeon processors, 6GB of ram, 640GB hard drive and NVIDIA GeForce GT120. That model is 15% off, Â netting you a savings of $500 and a purchase price of $2799. That’s still a grip of cash to drop on a computer, but saving money anywhere you can is always a good deal. If you’re in the market for a Mac Pro but don’t want to have to sell your car to get one, here’s another great option.
