Apple’s long-anticipated new Mac Pro – along with the – has finally got an order date, with the Cupertino company quietly notifying would-be buyers when they can open their wallet. Announced earlier this year, the new Mac Pro brought a marked change in design from its predecessor.
Apple’s all-new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will be available for pre-orders starting December 10 in the US, according to an email that the iPhone maker has sent out to customers. The Verge reported. The company first announced the new Mac Pro as well as the Pro Display XDR in June at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference.
The new Mac Pro will start at $5,999, making it the most expensive Apple product to exist. There will be numerous configurations possible, of course, all customizable and accessible within this new modular design.
The Mac Pro is a series of workstations and servers designed, manufactured and sold by Apple Inc. since 2006. The Mac Pro, in most configurations and in terms of speed and performance, is the most powerful computer that Apple offers. It is one of four desktop computers in the current Macintosh lineup, sitting above the consumer range Mac Mini and iMac, and serves as an easily-expandable alternative to the iMac Pro.
The new Mac Pro starts at $5,999 (roughly Rs. 4,27,000) while the Pro Display XDR starts at $4,999 (roughly Rs. 3,56,000).
According to the media reports, the company had originally announced that the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR would be available sometime “this fall”. The email revealed on Saturday is the first confirmation of an actual date.
The entry-level Mac Pro is set to cost $5,999, with 32GB of memory, an octa-core Intel Xeon CPU, Radeon Pro 580X graphics, and a 256GB SSD.
In terms of specifications, the all-new Mac Pro boasts up to 28-core Intel Xeon processors, up to 1.5TB of ECC RAM, up to 4TB of SSD storage along with up to AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo graphics with 64GB of HBM2 memory.
Notably, Apple’s announcement email just said that the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will be “available to order” on December 10 – given the fact that many users will likely be ordering custom configurations, shipping may take longer.
