Every Mac comes with the world’s most advanced operating system, as well as iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand, so you can do more with your photos, movies, and music. 

Your Mac Pro in great detail.

The Mac Pro Eight Core 2.93 (Early 2009/Nehalem) is powered by one 2.93 GHz Quad Core 45-nm Xeon E5520 (Nehalem) processor with a dedicated 256k of level 2 cache for each core and 8 MB of fully shared level 3 cache per processor.

By default, it is configured with 12 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM, a 1TB (7200 RPM, 16 MB cache) 3Gb/s Serial ATA hard drive, an 18X dual-layer "SuperDrive" and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 with 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. Upgrades available (ATI Radeon 5770 1GB VRAM at just $199.00) 

Expansion includes two external 5.25" optical bays (one free by default), four internal 3.5" cable-free, direct attach hard drive bays (three free by default), and four PCIe 2.0 slots (one free PCIe 2.0 x16 slot and two free PCIe 2.0 x4 slots with the default single graphics card installed).

Ports include five USB 2.0 ports, four Firewire 800 ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and both a Mini DisplayPort and a dual-link DVI port, among others. Bluetooth 2.1+EDR is standard, AirPort Extreme (802.11g/n) is optional.

Although the Early 2009/Nehalem models look practically the same externally as the Early 2008 models, there are major technical differences. The 64-bit Nehalem architecture is substantially faster and supports Hyper-Threading which allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core (so MacOS X recognizes sixteen "virtual cores" on this model) and "Turbo Boost"  which automatically boosts the processor speed based on workload (so if an application is only using one of the eight cores it will automatically increase the speed of the core in use and turn off the unused cores).

It also replaces the frontside bus with a new QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) system described as a bidrectional, point-to-point connection that provides quick access to the disk, I/O, and other Mac Pro subsystems".

Other changes include four PCIe 2.0 slots (instead of two PCIe and two PCIe 2.0 slots), four Firewire 800 ports (instead of two Firewire "400" and "800" ports), and a redesigned interior case with the processors and memory on a removable tray.
