I saw two Mac PC,s either the G5 or the Mac pro version at my local market. How can you tell what is in them? I dare say they were both the G5 version. Those fans in the G5 are noisy It must be hard to get the parts for them, and if you do must cost an arm and leg for them.X5690s are cheap as dirt now. I’ve picked up 2 for about $65 total. Some of the Ivy Bridge EP stuff is even cheaper. You can snag 10 core CPUs for like $10. I thought about getting a base Trash Can Mac Pro, as they are getting pretty cheap now. It’s a more involved procedure, but the 12C/24T Ivy EP is also really cheap and is drop in compatible. My main gripes are the limited storage room and the old proprietary Tahiti Radeons. Still, I might one day just to have owned one.
Come to think of it had more than one bay in the front so they must have been Mac Pros. Have you heard of MorphOS?
