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.
While on the surface the iMac Pro might seem like just a very souped up version of the regular iMac, it appears that Apple was serious when they said that they were designing it for professionals. Apple touts various impressive hardware specs on the iMac Pro’s website, but there are also some features that they did not mention.
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.
Apple’s iMac Pro was announced earlier this year and it was expected to see a release before the end of the year. Given that we’re in the second week of December and there is still no word from Apple, it’s safe to say that many are assuming that the iMac Pro might only see a 2018 release.
When Apple launched the iMac Pro, they did not mention when the computer would be available for purchase, save that it would be released in 2018. However it seems that we might have a date on our hands, thanks to a recent Google Search listing in which it suggests that the computer could be launched on the 18th of December, 2017.
In the past we have seen how Apple has filed for patents for computers, like the MacBook, that could feature cellular connectivity. The basic idea is to give it access to mobile internet, meaning that like the iPhone or iPad with cellular, it can connect without having to rely on WiFi. However for the most part it has existed as a mere idea.
There have been many rumors in the past to suggest that Apple could one day launch a Mac computer powered by an ARM chipset. We’ve yet to see that happen, but according to the latest rumors, it seems that the upcoming iMac Pro could mark the first time that Apple has created a Mac computer with an ARM chipset, even if it used as a co-processor.
Apple’s Magic Keyboard has more or less kept to the same design and features over the years. Then again, it is just a keyboard and there’s really only so many things one can improve on it, but for the most part it seems that Apple is happy with the way things are right now. However could a new model be in the works?
Earlier this year with many wondering about the fate of the Mac Pro and Apple’s commitment to the “pro” user, Apple responded by launching the iMac Pro. This is basically an iMac but with some pretty impressive hardware specs that are aimed towards pro users who might need a powerful computer but in a slimmer package.
At WWDC 2017 last week, Apple took the wraps off a new iMac aimed at professional users in the form of the iMac Pro. The idea is that this would be a very powerful iMac desktop that offered up the processing and graphical power that professionals might need in the form of an all-in-one desktop.
Apple has updated its Mac lineup today with faster processors and graphics, Thunderbolt 3, brighter Retina displays, faster storage options, and more. Apple has also updated the MacBook and MacBook Pro lineups today with faster processors. The company has launched a new product called the iMac Pro which it claims is the most powerful Mac it has ever made.
