Apple Mac Pro Server to replace soon to be discontinued Xserve

It had to happen – while Apple has announced that they will discontinue the Xserve line from January 31, 2011 onwards, along ambles a spanking new Mac Pro Server which will most probably be an unofficial replacement. Going for a dollar shy of $3,000, the new Mac Pro Server will ship anywhere from two to four weeks’ time, where it is powered by a solitary 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Xeon Nehalem processor, 8GB RAM, two 1TB (7200RPM) hard drives, one 18x SuperDrive, ATI’s Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB of GDDR5 video memory and the Mac OS X Server which offers unlimited client licenses. Of course, be prepared to fork out much, much more than three grand if you want to throw in upgraded specifications such as two 2.93GHz six-core Westmere processors, 32GB RAM, a Mac Pro RAID card and a quad-channel 4Gb fibre channel PCIe card.
