OT Mac Pro A1186 For Sale or Trade

From: Randy Yates 
I thought I'd post this on here before I list it on eBay or Craigslist.

I have an original Mac Pro which has been recently upgraded to 2,1 firmware
and dual x5365 Xeon Quad-core 3.0ghz processors. It also has 32 GB of RAM.
I'm currently on it and it runs like a champ. It is running Lion and that
is the last version of OS X that supports the first gen Mac Pro without
using some hacks to change the EFI limitations and without upgrading the
video card (currently has the original nVidia Geforce 7300).

It's super fast and quiet. It also runs rather cool (around 88F under
normal use at the moment).

It's a great machine if you aren't someone who needs the latest OS X or if
you want to go through the trouble of using the hack to install Mavericks
on it.

I personally need something that runs Mavericks even if the specs are lower
than this, because I'm doing dev work that requires the latest xcode and
dev tools.

If you would like one heck of a machine for a good price or if you have an
imac/mini capable of running Mavericks right away, hit me up offlist. Feel
free to ask any questions about the machine.

Happy holidays.

=============================================================== From: Randy Yates ------------------------------------------------------ These go for around $800 on ebay with 16gb of RAM, but I'd go $600 on this one just so I can turn around and get a new mac mini that's mavericks capable...and this machine is a lot faster than a new mac mini heh.
