It seems Apple has made good on its promise to release the Mac Pro 2019 and Pro Display XDR Monitor "this fall." Both items were released on Tuesday, December 10.
The date was revealed in an email sent to a few customers. Both items were initially shown at WWDC 2019 and were highly anticipated.
The base model of Mac Pro costs $5,999 and the starting price of Pro Display XDR is $4,999, without the stand that costs another $999.
The Mac Pro comes with an octa-core Intel Xeon W chip, 32GB of memory, 1.5TB of 6-channel ECC system memory, and AMD Radeon Pro 580X graphics. But that's just the beginning.
All these components can be upgraded for a price, of course. "Say hello to a Mac that is extreme in every way. With the greatest performance, expansion, and configurability yet, it is a system created to let a wide range of professionals push the limits of what is possible," reads Mac Pro's website.
A new image
The computer even comes with a whole new image. It features a stainless-steel frame that's a long way from the 2013 model's look.
In addition, it boasts several carefully placed vent holes, making it quite different from the more traditional look. Perhaps more impressive is that you can open up the computer from the top.
The aluminum housing can be lifted to provide 360-degree access to every component. The Pro Display XDR has also been designed to perfectly match the Mac Pro.
Best of all, the monitor is equipped with the world's first a 32-inch Retina 6K display and boasts Apple's Extreme Dynamic Range. Both these products have got our mouths watering but can we afford them? We have got to save our pennies to buy them.
