Thursday Apple Rumors: iMac Pro Orders Start Today

Here's a look at the most powerful Mac ever launched, and what it means for Apple's Mac business.

If a big and powerful new computer was on your holiday wish list this year, you might just have something new to consider. Rising prices for iPhones, for instance, have been a significant driver for growth in the segment - and this will likely continue to be the case with Apple's higher-priced iPhone X.

For the first time ever on a Mac, iMac Pro features 10Gb Ethernet for up to 10 times faster networking. iMac Pro is available from 14 December 2017, starting at RRP AU$7299. Base configurations come with 8GB Radeon Pro Vega 56 graphics, with an option to upgrade to the 16GB Radeon Pro Vega 64.

Apple started selling the iMac Pro on Thursday. All of this is packed into an elegant body with a 27-inch 5K display! So you'd better think twice whether you need more storage or memory before you click that buy button.

We also learned a bit more about the iMac Pro's upgradeability today.

Apple first announced the iMac Pro back in June, but it is now available for purchase. We saw body filters changed over from a great many cuts into full 3D models of a human body mystically show up without waiting for the PC to render anything. But it certainly sounds like a good investment if you're a professional who needs this amount of computing power.

On the plus side, the early reviews do suggest Apple's most expensive computer has been worth the wait. Still, if you've been looking for an official Apple option, now you have one.

iMac Pro: Should you buy one?

You can order here. This machine is a sign that Apple still values pro users and wants to offer a Mac that can meet their demands. It's the most costly Mac accessible today by a wide edge, and for the vast majority, simply getting the "best Mac" isn't justified regardless of the additional cash unless you have work that is as of now, essentially hampered by the speed of your PC. While it was initially believed that the iMac Pro's RAM would not be upgradeable at all, it turns out you will be able to visit an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider to have your RAM upgraded without voiding your warranty.

In the event that you totally should have the most intense PC Apple makes at the present time - paying little heed to cost - you will be inspired as damnation with what the iMac Pro can do.
