New Mac Pro arrives in the stores on Thursday, just before the Apple’s promised end-of-the year deadline
According to Apple Balla, Apple’s new, fully redesigned Mac Pro arrives to the stores before the end of the year. The customers will be able to order the new Mac Pro from the Apple's website, its retail stores, and several authorized third-party sellers. The price of the basic model is $2,999, but it can be higher with upgrades and options.
The redesigned Mac Pro was announced by Apple at the Worldwide Developer Conference in June. The old Mac Pro had a heavy, massive tower compared to the new model’s sleek and futuristic look, with the cylindrical design that is 9.9 inches tall, 6.6 inches in diameter, and weighs about 11 pounds.
Apple’s Phil Schiller described the latest Mac Pro as "the future of the pro desktop." In reaction to the critics accusing Apple of lacking creativity and the ability to come up with the new, original products, he said "Can't innovate anymore, my ass."
The new Mac Pro is the first Apple’s product entirely assembled in the USA.
Mac Pro is available in four different size Intel Xeon processor-core and different storage size. The basic model that starts at $2,999 comes with a 3.7GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, dual AMD FirePro D300 GPUs, 12GB of memory, 2GB of VRAM each, 256GB PCIe-based flash storage. A higher priced $3,999 Mac Pro has a 3.5GHz 6-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, dual AMD FirePro D500 GPUs, 16GB of memory, 3GB of VRAM each and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage. The price of customized models is much higher and depends on the components installed.
