Earlier this week, after being notified I would be leaving my employer, I decided to take advantage of the company's Employee Purchase Plan (EPP) with Apple. I walked into the Ridgedale Apple Store and picked out a Mac Pro dual Xeon quad-core 2.8GHz CPU, an Apple Wireless Keyboard, a couple of 20" Apple Cinema Displays, and the 10-user edition of Mac OS X Server. I decided that, as part of defining my work, I needed to make sure my productivity wasn't hampered by under-powered technology. I want to be able to do some serious computing, and there's nothing more powerful and affordable than the Mac Pro.
- Configure storage on the Mac Pro
- Install and configure Mac OS X Server on Mac Pro
- Migrate work stuff to Mac Pro from the Mac mini
- More things that I can't think of right now...
