Accelerate Your mac can help you with all that.  http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/   But if you have the skills to change out some socket LGA 771 xeons     Here is what you need to do: 1 Download the MacPro firmware tool  from:  http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,1094.0.html   2 Flash your Mac Pro 1, 1 to a 2, 1.  The machines are identical as far as hardware.   The flash  upgrades your Mac Pro firmware to a 2008 Firmware and makes it compatible with Lion and Snow Leopard....
Lol a mini?  The new mini wont hold a candle to what I can do with my 1, 1 Mac Pro.  I have two of the new minis and they wont crunch video near as fast as my upgraded 8 core mac pro 1, 1. How about drive bays the mini has one lol my Mac Pro has 4, Pci slots  The mini has none my pro 4. Although thunderbolt can make up for some of the loss of the pci slots but dedicated graphics cards in a thunderbolt box are still dodgy at best.  I still use thunderbolt on one of...
Want me to make you more angry lol.  As I own one of those Mac Pro 1,1 machines too.    It is perfectly capable of running 64bit firmware.  The chips that store the firmware are compatible. Apple just wont write one.  The Xeons are capable as they are full 64 bit too.  I have flashed mine to a Mac Pro 2,1 and installed dual quad core 3.0 Ghz Clovertowns and it was worth it for video crunching.  I have a new quad core i7 iMac and it wont crunch video as fast as my mac pro...
Apple publishes an abbreviated version of theres if anyone wants to look.   I think you can get the full version at the SEC.   Here is a link to the abbreviated version pdf for Q1 2013:  http://images.apple.com/pr/pdf/q1fy13datasum.pdf   Sorry that first one is just the earnings  here is the full version with everything:  http://files.shareholder.com/downloads/AAPL/2362481347x0x630682/0629c90d-47c2-4ca6-8578-33ac095623cd/AAPL_Q1_10Q_01.24.13.pdf
Im with a lot of the comments here what a stupid suggestion, go into debt?  I read that apple already put aside the taxes for those overseas funds and if they did bring the money back to the US which I doubt  they could and not change there bottom line.   But being that 2/3rds of apples money is made outside the us I think it should stay there. They paid 6 billion in US taxes last year so they paid there share on the US portion of there money.
      The article puts in plain detail that the numbers just dont add up, here in the US were led to believe that in most surveys that iOS is lagging behind, and like this article by IDC anyone including google can count there activations, shipments and any other number they want to make up as real.  Sadly there not.  Apple is the only vendor that reports actual sales and activations and for now is the only vendors numbers that can be relied on.  Android has a lot more...
Here is a really good piece by Horace Dediu at Asymco  about Googles bogus android activation numbers as well  its a very good read entitled "Where are the Android Users".   It goes into great depth about how googles activation numbers dont hold up agains close scrutiny.  Horace is very good at numbers that is his job.   http://www.asymco.com/2013/03/11/where-are-the-android-users/   Android vendors put up a huge smoke screen hoping that if they say the bs long...
Yes they did and they have been low balling apples share for years.  They seriously need to fire there entire survey staff and start over.   There like the proud mother watching her son march in a marching band in a parade and seeing that he is out of step with the band tells people "Look there all out of step but Jim".  Lol.
Yet another Bullshit study by IDC. They pull these numbers out of there arse. No Android vendor even posts shipped units and not one of them posts sold. Every IDC study I have ever seen or read always puts iOS in the worst possible light and always on the loosing end. Even when 10 other studies show the exact opposite. If I didnt know better I would think that IDC has a vendetta against Apple. I would not trust any report they publish.
I dont remember where but i read that when project "Purple" was started (development code name of the iPhone) it was development of a tablet computer.  Steve Jobs steered the development  away from a tablet computer into what was to eventually become the iPhone.       I think it was in his autobiography.   The original iPhone was a tablet.   Lol sorry for the repeat I didnt see that someone posted the same thing above
