Out of curiosity I decided to compare an Apple Mac Pro desktop to one I
could build from new egg. Specs

1 Xeon Quad Core 2.8 Ghz (715)
2 Gigs of DDR2 800mhz RAM (60)
1 750 GB 7200 SATA 3GB Hard Drive (160)
1 Nvidia Geforce GT 512MB video card (229)
1 DVD/CD burner dual layer 22x (32)
1 Logitech Wireless Mouse (50)
1 Logitech Wireless Keyboard (50)
1 Aluminum Case w/ps (150)
1 Server Motherboard (520)

I added in to my price $200 for the OS.

My price from new egg. $2200 (I rounded up as well)
Apples price. $2649

With that said this is not an apple to Apple comparison. I just thought
it was interesting.
