Apple’s new Mac Pro is pretty expensive with a base starting price of $5,000. The computer is clearly aimed at industry professionals who might have the need for all that raw power and are willing to pay for it, but now thanks to new benchmark scores spotted on Geekbench 5, it seems a bit disappointing.
At WWDC 2019, Apple announced macOS Catalina. This is Apple’s latest version of macOS that they plan on releasing later in the year, but the question is, is your computer compatible with the latest update? For those who are wondering, Apple has published a list of Mac computers that are eligible for the update.
Fancy spending $5,200 on just the RAM for your new iMac Pro? Now you can. Apple has updated its configuration options for this powerful Mac machine which include an option for a staggering 256GB of RAM. You’ll need some really deep pockets for this because the iMac Pro itself starts at $4,999.
Apple’s newer Mac computers come with the company’s T2 security enclave. This is a special chip that securely stores sensitive information about the user, like in the case of the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pros, it is where your fingerprint information is stored and protected using encryption.
One of the new hardware features that Apple introduced to its Mac computers back in 2017 was the T2 chip in the iMac Pro. Apple then brought the chip over to the 2018 MacBook Pro laptops which seemed like a good thing, but now a report from Digital Trends is suggesting that it might be causing more problems than solving them.
When Apple unveiled the iMac Pro, they introduced it in a space grey finish that helped to set it apart from the regular iMac. This included the chassis of the computer, the keyboard, mouse, and trackpad. Initially Apple did not sell these accessories separate from the iMac Pro, resulting in some opportunists who took to eBay where they sold these accessories for thousands.
In 2017 Apple announced the iMac Pro which is an iMac designed for professionals who want a more space-saving desktop to work on. While its all-in-one design is space-saving, that’s pretty much all the saving that it will do because a fully-specced out iMac will set customers back as much as $14,000, but is it worth it?
Ahead of the iMac Pro being released, there were rumors that the computer could come with a new chipset that has never been found in a Mac computer – an A10 Fusion co-processor. If you’re wondering why this sounds familiar, basically this is the same chipset found in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
Apple unveiled the iMac Pro last year and promised to release the machine before the end of this year. The iMac Pro went on sale in mid-December and the company started shipping the units by December 27th. It was not possible to reserve a unit for pickup at an Apple Store initially but customers can do that now. The iMac Pro is now available for store pickup in several markets […]
If there is one gripe that many iMac and MacBook owners have is that the front-facing camera installed on their computers is definitely not up to par with some of the third-party options out there. For example for a computer that can display a 5K resolution, the FaceTime camera on the iMac is a measly HD.
What sets the new iMac Pro apart from the regular iMac? For those who are more keenly-eyed, the lack of a back panel which on the iMac would have allowed users to swap/upgrade the RAM on the computer themselves. However we suppose the more obvious difference is that the iMac Pro is being offered in a Space Grey finish.
More often than not, it is usually cheaper to upgrade your computer yourself by purchasing parts from outside rather than directly from your computer maker. The only downside is that it isn’t covered by your warranty (and might void your warranty) and you’ll have to do it yourself, which can be daunting for users who aren’t familiar with the process.
We already knew that the iMac Pro would not come cheap. When Apple finally announced the computer’s availability, it was also revealed that its starting price was at $4,999, which puts it well beyond the reach of the average computer user. Then again it does pack some impressive hardware and a custom T2 chip for enhanced security.
Many power users who swear by the iMac have been waiting to get their hands on the new iMac Pro. The company had promised to release the powerful new iMac before the end of this year and it’s going to follow through on the promise. Apple has now started selling the iMac Pro online and shipments are slated to arrive by December 27th.
