Damn. What a beast of a computer. Precisely a million times the RAM of my 6502 based box from the eighties....Anyway, I had a deal for an '06 Pro fall through recently. The specs of your model make me think that it would still be a cheap way to go since I already have a nice monitor. Maybe prices will come down even more after WWDC.I use a Mini for photography, and my 7D's big RAW files are crushing it.
