Apple’s new Mac Pro ships in December with a starting price tag of $2,999. Ben Gilbert with a few of the details of the diminutive powerhouse.
The machine starts at the above configuration, but expands to 64GB DRAM and 1TB flash storage. Should you prefer the whole cloth route, there’s a $4,000 option with a 3.5 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon E5 processor (“with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz”), dual AMD FirePro D500 GPUs with 3GB of VRAM each, 16GB of memory, and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage. Considering Apple’s touting this as the computer you’ll have for “the next 10 years,” perhaps some expansion beyond the base model is worth a thought.
Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in the U.S.A.
