You know, I looked at the Apple Mac Pro 10 with 12 core, and I'll have to say it's a pretty damn good computer, but after a long discussion with the folks at Apple it appeared to me that some of the things that I needed to do with this computer would have been somewhat problematical with the Mac. I brought some of the the design software to the Intel guy (not the auto cad) and he run it up on one of his computers and figured out exactly what was needed in the hardware department of this computer build. Along with the other things I wanted to do with this computer I'll be ending up with a beast of a machine that should seamlessly do exactly what I want.
