An interesting read at MSNBC, the site run by Microsoft and the US based television network NBC.  The review by Gary Krakow has nothing but praise for Apple's new Mac Pro desktop computer.

Besides highlighting the specifications and features, Kraskow had the following to say about the Mac Pro:


"The new Mac Pro desktop is a thing of beauty.  Inside and out this box looks like it is the ultimate desktop computer on the market today."

"With two, 64-bit, dual-core Intel Xeon “Woodcrest” processors and it's sleek design, the Mac Pro is the computer equivalent of a Ferrari, Maserati or Porsche... The Mac Pro is encased in real metal rather than cheap pressboard or molded plastic that looks like metal,"
 
"This baby is fast! How fast? Apple tested the Mac Pro's processing speed while running software by Logic Pro 7.2.2., Soundtrack Pro 1.1 and Final Cut Pro to Xcode 2.3, PyMOL 0.99 and Mathematica 5.2.2 and they said the Mac Pro runs 1.4 to 1.8 times faster than their previous G5 speedster," Krakow reports. "The Mac Pro comes with Mac OS 10.4 Tiger installed. I also saw a demonstration of Apple’s next operating system, Leopard (OS 10.5) running on the Pro and it looked great."

Those interested a speedy top notch desktop should consider purchasing the Mac Pro.  You can view the article here.
