Mac Pro, I don't get it, do you?

Does anyone get the Mac Pro? It seems that they have workstation class CPUs, but all the other components are middle or low end consumer components. How is a geForce 7300GT a workstation video card? Yet Apple is charging a workstation price! $2499 and higher for a desktop? Yes, a workstation can be that high, but not a regular desktop. Only Apple.

Back in the day, Apple computers had all kinds of things that PC's usually did not have like SCSI. Not anymore, Intel motherboards and chips; I can build that.

Brothers HL-5250DN Printer Review

I was lured by the HL-5250DN low price and long feature list.
You are unlikely to find another printer with all the features of the 5250 at the low price of $200-250 USD. If you can't get good prints, what's the point.

I tried two 5250s. The first one was really horrible at printing black, at maybe 65%. It could not print black. I contacted Brother support, but they had no idea, so they suggested getting another one. The next one printed black better, but only at maybe 85%.
