The fact that my 6 year old MacPro is faster (according to geekbench), has more ram and a better graphics card than ALL but the top-o-the line iMac makes this article even more annoying.

Only annoying if you feel the need to have Mountain Lion.

But I suspect that ways will be found to make "unsupported" installs work.

yeah, that does make it one of the nicest intel macs released, at least from a nerdy perspective.

Mac Pro 2.66 Xeon 5150 = 5213 on this page
[www.primatelabs.ca]

later Mac Pros do appear to hold their own according to those numbers.

maybe some of you with 1,1 Mac Pros are booting from an SSD or Velociraptor and have maxed the RAM...

Yeah, my upgraded Mac Pro 1,1 with Dual x5365s hit 10,500 in Geekbench (32-bit) without an SSD.

Geekbench score of 11486 in 64-bit.

No slouch.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

You are statistically non-existent in the view of Apple, even lower than the number of people that really use FCP to it's full extent.

The term 'Statistically insignificant" applies here. Common in any business with common sense.

8 core Mac Pro 2,1 here. 12GB RAM, SSD. Once you go SSD you can't go back.

Easily bests all but the highest end modern Macs. Not bad for a 5 year old machine.
