Mac Pro is (Almost) Here
Mac-centric schools take note: the next generation Mac Pro black cylinder tower systems are now on sale. Don’t expect to get one until early February at the earliest, but you can order it now. The systems are screamers that are more attuned to video editing and high-end graphics than day-to-day teaching. They come with anything from a quad- to a 12-core Xenon processor, up to 64GB of RAM and as much as a terabyte of solid state storage space. It’s top shelf all the way with six Thunderbolt 2 ports, four USB 3.0, HDMI and a pair of LAN ports. It comes with the choice of three high-end AMD FirePro graphics cards. All this hardware doesn’t come cheap because the Mac Pro starts at $3,999 but can go as high as roughly $20,000 for a fully loaded system.
