Apple Launches the New Mac Pro
Apple has recently launched the new Mac Pro via their online store. It is yet to make it to retail stores. This launch comes one day after they announced it on their press release page. The base-line model comes with a 3.7 GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12 GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D300 graphics chips, and 256 GB of flash storage and costs $2,999. Another standard configuration comes with a 3.5 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 16 GB of RAM, 256 GB of flash storage, and dual AMD FirePro D500 graphics, and starts at $3,999.
Like we said yesterday, you can configure the Mac Pro up to $9,599. Surprisingly, it doesn’t come with a keyboard or mouse. Their reason for this is:
Mac Pro ships without a keyboard or mouse, allowing you to use ones you already own or buy any you choose.
Also, you can add a 4K display from Sharp for an extra $3,595. The screen measures 31.5 inches across and has a resolution of 3840 by 2160.
With each model you can upgrade the processor, RAM, flash storage, and graphics. Since it doesn’t come with a keyboard or mouse you can add that to the Mac while configuring it. If you want some displays you can add a Thunderbolt Display and a 4K display.
All models, including built-to-order ones are shipping in February 2014. You can buy the new Mac Pro here.
