MPG Pro Workstation SPECIAL OFFER (Souped-up Mac Pro), $250 OFF

No new Mac Pro from Apple.

But I get my work done every day on my MPG Pro Workstation, as I have for the past 22 months. Bottom line it works great and while faster CPUs are always nice, it’s a reliable and robust tool for my photography work.
