  1. Requires installation of four NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics cards, each of which provides support for up to two 20-inch Apple Cinema Displays or 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Displays.
  2. Wireless Internet access requires base station or other wireless access point and Internet access (fees may apply). Achieving optimal 802.11n data rates requires that all users have an 802.11n AirPort Extreme Card and connect to an 802.11n AirPort Extreme Base Station. Speed and range will be less if an 802.11a/b/g product joins the network. Actual performance will vary based on range, connection rate, site conditions, size of network, and other factors. Range will vary with site conditions. Based on IEEE 802.11n draft specification.
  3. 1TB = approximately 1 trillion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
  4. Supports Mac OS X only.
  5. 8-core Mac Pro systems configured with one GeForce 7300 GT graphics card and a single hard drive meet ENERGY STAR requirements. All other Mac Pro systems meet ENERGY STAR 3.0 requirements. Systems configured with an Apple Fibre Channel or Mac Pro RAID card do not comply with ENERGY STAR requirements.
  6. PCI Express slots are not compatible with PCI or PCI-X expansion cards.
  7. Actual weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.
