Apple Mac Pro Quad-Core Intel Xeon Desktop Computer - MA970LLA

Smart Design

The new macPro is already packed with power and performance but it's designed for even more. Smart design makes installing massive amounts of memory, adding expansion cards, and increasing storage surprisingly simple and intuitive. And there are plenty of I/O ports to connect external devices.

Turbo and tool-less.
The Mac Pro features four full-length expansion slots, including an even higher-performance PCI Express 2.0 graphics slot, with up to twice the bandwidth of PCI Express. The graphics slot is double-wide, so your graphics card won't cover an adjacent slot. In addition, three available expansion slots, one PCI Express 2.0 and two PCI Express, provide room to grow. And thanks to a tool-less PCI bracket, you can take out cards as fast as you put them in.

Slide-in storage.
The Mac Pro comes with four 3.5-inch internal hard drive bays for an enormous amount of internal storage — up to 4TB. These bays are direct-attach and cable free, so it’s easy to add or remove drives. Just attach the drive carrier to either a Serial ATA 3Gb/s or Serial Attached SCSI 3Gb/s drive, and slide the drive into place. There are no connectors or cables to contend with. Lock the drives with the side door latch, and you’re done.

Memory boost.
Install more memory in your Mac Pro in a snap, literally. Every Mac Pro has two memory riser cards with four fully buffered DIMM slots each. Just slide out the riser cards and snap in the memory. You don’t have to dig around inside the computer or wrestle with wires or cables. With a total of eight DIMM slots available, you can install up to 32GB of 800MHz ECC fully buffered DIMM memory.

Easy I/O

There are plenty of places to connect external devices to your Mac Pro. You'll find a FireWire 800 port, a FireWire 400 port, two USB 2.0 ports, and a headphone minijack right up front - where it's more convenient to connect storage, multimedia devices, and high speed peripherals.

And there are even more ports on the back: three USB 2.0, one FireWire800, one FireWire 400, optical audio in and out, analog audio in and out, and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.
