It has been a long time since the Mac Pro last received a major refresh, almost three years. Apple CEO Tim Cook first teased the revamped Mac Pro late last year, which cleared up doubts about the company actually axing the lineup altogether. Back at the WWDC 2013, Apple offered a little look into what it was working on, this is perhaps the most substantial update that the Mac Pro has ever received and fans of this lineup have anxiously been waiting for its release. It has finally been announced that the new Apple Mac Pro 2013 is going to be available for purchase from tomorrow, December 19th, 2013.
You will immediately notice the all new design, which was actually the subject of some hilarious illustrations. Don’t be fooled by its small size though, under the hood, the new Mac Pro touts the latest Intel Xeon processors, dual workstation class GPUs or graphics processing units, PCIe based flash storage and super fast ECC memory. The base 3.7GHZ quadcore Xeon E5 model with dual AMD FirePro D300 GPUs, 12GB memory and 256GB flash storage costs $2,999 whereas the 3.5GHz 6-core Xeon E5 model with dual AMD FirePro D500 GPUs, 16GB memory and 256GB flash storage costs $3,999. Customers have configure-to-order options, pricing for those models depends upon how much they’re willing to splurge. The new Apple Mac Pro 2013 goes on sale tomorrow through the company’s brick and mortar stores, authorized resellers and its online store.
