As much as I love this machine, I’ve just got a new m1 Mac Mini for work and this is just going to end up gathering dust and taking up space.
Mid 2010 Mac Pro - 2 x 2.4 ghz quad-core
Currently got all the ram slots filled to a total of 48gb (you can fit more in with bigger ram modules)
Its got an upgraded graphics card:
A Radeon RX 560 4gb
(I’ll include the OG card too)
And it’s had its firmware upgraded so it can run up to Mojave, which is installed.
It’s currently got a 1tb drive (the boot disc) and a 2tb drive. The 2tb is super slow for some reason, but I’ll leave it in there anyway. I do have a spare 256gb SSD which I could be persuaded to part with will include. Regardless I’d really recommend popping an SSD in here to run the OS - makes a huge difference. You can chuck 2 in really easily, under the superdrive.
I also put a 4x usb 3.0 pci card in, so you can plug all the things in to it.
Can’t think what other details to impart, but ask and I shall provide. I’ll follow up with some pics, but basically it looks like a 2010 Mac Pro, right?
I’m in Bristol and it weighs a tonne so collection only for now.
Let’s start at £350
This feels reasonable, looking at other Similar machines out there, but do pipe up if I’m way off.
£350 - £325 - £300 - £290 - £280
Finally some photos
Blimey, case looks filthy in those photos - I'll give it a polish!
Here's it's guts. I've currently popped both GFX cards in, just so I don't lose or break the original one.
I'm almost tempted for nostalgia alone...
put your Mac mini inside it for retro hipster points : )
Ha! Not a bad idea :-D
If I had anywhere to put it, I'd definitely be keeping it. I would just end up sat somewhere gathering dust though and I'd rather someone actually use it.
Free 240gb SSD plus a price drop
Another price drop - I know it’s a bit niche, but come on, someone must want this big lump of metal!
NYE price drop. I’m cutting my own throat here, guys! Retro chic at a bargain price - don’t make me put it in the loft!
Last last ditch attempt: £280
