You can easily transfer the data at high speeds through the USB port from this Apple desktop to an external storage device.

Product Features
  • Expansion made easy
    The easy-access interior of the Mac Pro feels like the well-organized workstation it is. No rat's nest of components here. You don't need to turn the system on its side or struggle to reach into awkward spaces to make changes. Just remove the side panel for instant access to everything. Slide out the processor tray to add memory. Slide out drive bays to add storage. Slide a simple bar to change up to four expansion cards at once. And with plenty of I/O ports both front and back, you'll have room for all your external devices.
  • Tool-less PCI
    When it's time to upgrade, a quick slide of the retention bar frees up the four expansion card slots for easy access. Thanks to a thumbscrew PCI bracket, you can swap out cards without any tools.
  • Slide-in storage
    The Mac Pro comes with four drive bays for an enormous amount of internal storage. For faster access to your data, you can also configure your Mac Pro with up to four solid-state drives. The bays are direct-attach and cable free, so it's easy to add or remove drives. Just attach the drive carrier to a drive and slide the drive into place. There are no connectors or cables to contend with. Lock the drives with the side door latch, and you're done.
  • Snap-in memory
    Install more memory in your Mac Pro in a snap. Literally. The easy-access interior lets you slide out the processor tray in one smooth motion, then simply snap new memory into place. You don't have to dig around inside the computer or wrestle with wires or cables.
  • Front and back I/O
    There are plenty of places to connect external devices to your Mac Pro.
  • Powerfully efficient
    The Mac Pro meets the stringent low power requirements set by the EPA, giving it ENERGY STAR qualification.
  • Highly recyclable
    The Mac Pro is built with a recyclable aluminum enclosure. Aluminum is very desirable to recyclers, which means the raw materials used in the Mac Pro can be reused in other products. Apple also simplified the internal design, replacing over 6 feet of cables with more material-efficient connectors that allow easy disassembly at end of life. In addition, one of the few remaining plastic assemblies in the Mac Pro is made from postconsumer recycled plastic.

Information contained above under "Product Information" is generic to this computer and one should refer to information below for the specific configuration of this machine. The computer has two 3.0 GHz processors as noted below and is not 6 core as contained in the above description.  Also, I have included as much information as possible to allow you to make a knowledgeable decision based on this machine

As noted in the title heading this is
Mac Pro "Quad Core" 3.0 (Original),  A1186  build to order.  If needed, more detailed information on this specific model may be obtained by checking its serial number at "everymac.com".  Any questions or concerns please contact me.

The Mac Pro "Quad Core" 3.0 is powered by two 3.0 GHz dual core Intel Xeon 5160 processors with 4 MB of shared level 2 cache per processor, a 128-bit SSE3 vector engine, and 1.33 GHz "64-bit dual independent frontside buses."

By default, it was configured with 1.0 GB of 667 MHz DDR2 ECC "fully-buffered" FB-DIMM memory (with a heatsink design that is a bit different from generic FB-DIMMs), a 250 GB (7200 RPM) 3 Gb/s Serial ATA hard drive, a double-layer 16X "SuperDrive", and a NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT video card with 256 MB of GDDR2 SDRAM, one dual-link DVI port and one single-link DVI port.

Expansion includes two external 5.25" "optical" bays (one occupied by default), four internal 3.5" "cable-free, direct attach" hard drive bays (three free by default), and four PCIe slots (three free with one graphics card installed). Ports include dual Gigabit Ethernet, five USB 2.0 ports, two Firewire "400" ports, two Firewire "800" ports, and optical digital audio in/out, among others. AirPort Extreme (802.11g/n), Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, and a modem are optional and not included on this machine.
Currently, the computer is configured with 10GB of memory. Hard drive complement consists of the original 250GB HD and a 320GB HD. The installed video card is a Radeon ATI 2600.  The unit has two optical drives. The upper optical drive has recently been replaced with one from OWC. Cosmetically, the case is in very good condition - no dings, no dents. no scratches with the exception of small surface scratches on the top of the case from items being placed on it. The optical drive doors can be problematic in closing at times, which does not impede the functionality of the super drives. (a know issue with Mac Pros).  Original software and documents included.  Keyboard and mouse not included.   A perfect and affordable introduction to the Mac Pro!
