We have been hearing reports that despite us being in the second week of December, that the iMac Pro is still on track for a release by the end of the year. The good news is that if you were eyeing the computer, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has confirmed the iMac Pro’s availability for the 14th of December, 2017.
This is according to an update on Apple’s website in which they list the iMac Pro has being available on the 14th of December, which is this Thursday. The iMac Pro, for those hearing about this for the first time, is a beast of a computer and is basically an AIO solution for professional users who need the power and the compactness that an AIO offers.
It will feature a ton of new features, such as a new dark finish which unfortunately appears to be an iMac Pro exclusive for now (along with accessories that are similarly themed), new “enhanced” stereo speakers that will offer up better sound quality, advanced thermal management, support for up to 128GB of RAM, and it is even powerful enough where thanks to its new Vega GPU, you could use it to power virtual reality systems.
Unfortunately all of this does not come cheap with a price tag starting at $4,999. Apple has since sent out review units to several journalist and YouTubers, so you can check out some of the video reviews below if you’re interested.
