Apple’s Mac Pro has been long in the tooth for many years now.
They previewed their new Mac Pro at WWDC earlier this year. The pro-level machine is stunning to look at, and reasonably priced for its specs, but basically only expandable through the addition of external peripherals.
Apple had promised that the Mac Pro would be available in December, and now has announced that it will be available to order tomorrow, December 19, 2013.
Apple’s press release doesn’t reveal when the machines will be actually shipping, however.
Price-wise, the base configuration Mac Pro retails for $2,999.00, and ships with a 3.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12GB 1866MHz DDR3 ECC memory, dual AMD FirePro D300 video cards with 2 GB VRAM each, and 256GB flash memory for storage.
The Mac Pro can be maxed out with a 2.7 GHz 12 Core processor, 64 GB RAM, dual AMD FirePro D500 video cards with 3 GB VRAM each, 1TB flash memory storage, and will run you $9,999.00.
All configurations ship with 4 USB3 ports, and 6 Thunderbolt 2 ports. You’ll need all the ports as the machines are not internally expandable.
A special Project (RED) Mac Pro designed by Apple’s Chief Designer Jony Ive sold at a Sotheby’s auction last month for $977,000.
