Apple’s suite of high-tech offerings have always been very stylish and dependable, but we wouldn’t always call them top-of-the-line. When performance, versatility, and customization are a top concern, people tend to flock to alternative PC brands. But the Cupertino-based company looks to be trying to change that with their new Mac Pro desktop computer.
Hoping to get themselves back in the discussion amongst industry professionals, Apple’s Mac Pro is “extreme in every way” — boasting the greatest performance, expansion, and configurability they’ve ever offered. In fact, the way it was designed was specifically to allow for nearly infinite customization, including a 360-degree-accessible internal rack system with a variety of mounting options for swappable internal bits. It’s also capable of supporting up to 28 cores for ultimate CPU performance, has a tremendous amount of bandwidth, features a remarkably efficient 3-fan cooling system to cope with the 300 watts of juice used by the processor, and supports up to 1.5TB of memory. This stainless steel computing monster comes at a high price, however, with prices starting at $5,999 and the highest-end option expected to cost around $35,000.
