    I don't think you understand the finer details of purchasing Apple equipment. Here's the proper way:

    MacPro getting more expensive each year :ohwell:

    Shared workload is horrible on Windows platform,I choose this anytime over any windows offering.

    Well said :toast:
    Even FirePro "lackluster graphical performance" in some benchmark out there,they perform nicely in EDS,assembling database and other specific data migration and analytic displaying.

    HP is the worst considering Dell at the same price,but they have vast amount of workstation and server related peripherals.So it's down to your own if you decided to choose them or building your own ecosystem :)

    I really like this as a desktop, but not as a Workstation. Workstations need more room internally for expansion.

    I still have to see what the temps are - I just refuse to believe one central chamber and a unified heatsink is a good idea. Most companies have stopped doing that for laptops with a dedicated GPU because they learned long ago that placing one fan on a unified heatsink that is supposed to cover both the GPU and the CPU was a stupid idea and lead to tons of overheating.

    That's what I wanted to know, thanks!

    It is cost efficient for 2-3 machines but not when dealing with 50+ or semi HPC machines - like you said you don't have the time or the knowledge do deal with it alone.

    I didn't have bad experience with HP's workstation department yet (the consumer is a different story).
    Depends who you're dealing with I suppose, and you don't even have to go anywhere since you have on-site support/replacement ;)

    I actually think it'll work fine. They now how to build stuff at that place. Yes they've had things in the past that overheated like dogs of the female persuasion in heat, but the past tense is the key statement there.

    We will have to see it in action before knowing for sure though. :D

    My mac book averages 85c running minecraft with the fan at 100% so no they have no idea how to make coolers. Apple chassis on the other hand are pretty good for looks.
