RAM(P) Up Your new Mac Pro

If a new Mac Pro is in your immediate or far future, you should pump it up with all the RAM you may need! The new quad-core Mac Pro ships with 3GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM memory, but you can expand that up to 8GB (4 x 2GB). The new 8-core Mac Pro ships with 6GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM memory, which you can expand up to 32GB (8 x 4GB). We tested the newest 4 and 8 slot models here in lovely Woodstock, IL, and they are amazing machines!
