Rating: 5/5 love the product March 20, 2016 the only issue I had with the product was the screws to get the HD out, they were stripped, I got creative. I bought this machine to replace a 2006 Mac Pro. Apple limited that 64bit machine to not being a true 64 bit machine, something I did not know until Mountain Lion, I felt cheated. I was able to replace my 2006 with the 2009 perfectly. Everything swapped out, except the video card, which I chose to leave in. MacSales is the only place I have ever brought Apple products from, it has been and continues to be a trusted source.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
