Another great purchase December 25, 2015
Reviewer: Charles from lansing, MI United States  
This was my third purchase from MOAT.  Unit was well packaged, UPS is another issue.  The computer arrived on time, and in good working condition.  Upgraded OS to El Capitan and installed Java.  Unit was purchased as a present for daughter.  Never a bad purchase when ordering from MOAT.  Will buy again.

Does Everything I need it too and more December 14, 2015
Reviewer: Noah from Katy, TX United States  
Came in near excellent condition, and performs better than I expected. Only things I need to upgrade is the ram and the hard drive. Gonna get 12GB of ram in the machine, and a 120GB ssd along with a 2TB hard drive. The Geforce 8800GT that mine came with is still powerful enough to run Final Cut Pro X, without lagging out. Very happy with my purchase, and I have and will buy from Mac of all Trades again.

Very Happy November 20, 2015
Reviewer: Robert Moree from Riverview, FL United States  
I'd like to thanks the folks at Mac of all trades. Shipping was crazy fast. I had to replace my old G5 tower in a hurry. Thanks to Mac of all trades I was able to complete my project without much downtime. The unit is in great condition. I will no doubt get many more years of service from it.

Almost perfect transaction June 19, 2015
Reviewer: Linda Guy from St. Petersburg, FL United States  
I purchased an Apple Mac Pro, early 2008 and it came as promised and worked well for 1 week. Then the signal to the monitor started making red/black checked patterns more and more until my monitor went black. Mac of all Trades technical support were helpful and finally took it back and replaced the video card. It is now working well again. In the future, I would save the packaging until the warranty is up, just in case it has to be returned.

Performance with great value January 2, 2015
Reviewer: LL from Irvine, CA United States  
With two quad-core processors, this Mac Pro provides significant improvement in performance compared to my other computers (MacBook, MacMini, iMac). This Mac Pro system has Apple's legendary case design with easy access to all relevant internal peripherals for easy upgrades and room for future expansion. This system is more than adequate for use as an engineering workstation.

The graphics card that came with my system went bad, consistently causing kernel panics (as shown in the kernel panic log). Contacted tech-support and was quickly sent a replacement card within a week, which solved the problem, and the system has been running reliably ever since.

One negative to this system is that it consistently uses around 300 Watts. When the system first starts, it causes the lights to momentarily flicker; the room that the system is in is always a few degrees warmer....
