OWC has some new or nearly new (some sealed box) 2013 Mac Pro deals, 6 core. Savings are $400 to $580, depending on the model.
The 6-core is the “sweet spot” model for photographers that I’ve been recommending since the 2013 model debuted. See review of the 2013 Mac Pro.
+ Special additional discount for MPG readers
MPG has arranged a special reader discount of an additional $100 off over and above the other discounts when purchased this set of peripherals (every Mac Pro user looking for a robust system should have this setup):
- 64GB memory (set and forget, enough for almost anything)
- 20TB Thunderbay 4 RAID-5 edition (configure as three RAID-5 TB partitions)
- Thunderbolt 2 Dock (extra USB ports on their own bus).
If you need a 1TB or 2TB SSD, then also get the OWC Aura SSD for Mac Pro upgrade also.
To take advantage of the total package: (1) add the Mac Pro of choice to your shopping carty, then (2) add the above memory / Thunderbay / Dock bundle to your cart. The cart should look something like this:
