I have been trying to sell it recently so that I can purchase a 21" iMac machine (model MC309LL/A, and that would easily be enough for me), but I am not getting any interest. I am selling my MacPro for $1150, and I am including a perfectly working Sony 19" monitor, an Apple Extended keyboard, an Apple Magic Mouse (actually, I will just use the one that comes with the iMac as part of the sale, and keep my (perfectly functional) Logitech mouse), and OS 10.7 (Lion).
As I mentioned, if I can keep the MacPro, I would, I am wondering, therefore, if I can upgrade the processor to one that is 1) compatible with Mountain Lion, and 2) is at least as fast as the processor I have now. Also, and excuse me for being a novice at this, but I am using Comcast as my ISP, and I have an Arris DOCSIS 3.0/EMTA modem, and a Netgear 802b/g/n router. How can I tell if I am "connecting" at 802.11n? If I'm not, how do I upgrade to 802.11n?
Any information/advice/assistance etc. would be appreciated.
