Mac Pro On Its Way

The estimated ship date is October 6, 2006 and the estimated delivery date is October 16, 2006. I wonder if it'll actually take that long. I guess I can put off ordering my 4 GB RAM kit from RAMJet for awhile.

  3.00 GHz Quad Xeon
  1GB 667 DDR2 FB DIMM ECC-2x512
  ATI Radeon X1900 XT 512MB
  500GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s drive
  500GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s drive
  2x16x SuperDrive DL
  Airprt Extrm & BT 2.0+EDR
  Apple Keyboard & Mighty Mse

Soon I'll have a dual 2.0 GHz G5 to sell.

  1. Damn that is quite a beast! And I thought I was cool, ordered a 20" iMac w/ 2GB yesterday. 😀

  2. erik,

    It might be interesting if you keep track of the fluctuation of the price of RAM between now and then, for a post when you get the gear, to let us know how much you saved by waiting six weeks or so for the RAM.

    It seems I've already seen a couple of price drops on RAM for newer macs.; I imagine sometimes, the price gooses itself back up.

  3. The ship date is so far out still due to the airport card. - The Mac Pros are using the new Airport Express Card and they're not shipping yet.

  4. You should check out crucial for the RAM. They have great products and service. I just looked today using your link and the RAM from RAMJET was 1195 in a 4x1 config.

    At you can get 2x2 for 1100, a much better deal.

    I'm not affiliated with crucial in any way except as a customer.

    Here is the link:

  5. For various reasons, not the least of which is a small discount I get from a deal I made with RAMJet many moons ago in addition to exceptional service, I prefer to order from RAMJet. 🙂 And RAM prices fluctuate. 10 days ago they were $899.
