The New iMac Pro Is In Town And Its Beefy Specs Make It Stand Out

After a year or two of Windows 10, I’m ready to go back to a computer that doesn’t hate me. I’d been hoping the iMac Pro, announced yesterday, would come in a relatively affordable form, competitive with the $2700 Microsoft Surface Studio. But no! This is way higher than Surface Studio. At $5000 to start, this total monster of an all-in-one is most certainly for professionals. It features 18 cores Intel Xenon, 128GB of DDR4 RAM, 4TB SSD, a 16GB Radeon Vega video card.

This specs makes this system company’s all in one Mac. It has 27 inch monitor which is of 5k display resolution. To make sure you know it means business, it comes in pure black and ships December.

Finally, Apple also updated its MacBook and MacBook Pro line with 7th generation Intel processors, and gave the MacBook Air a specification bump in response to its sustained popularity. By updating to the 7th generation “Kaby Lake” Core i5 and i7 processors, Apple has brought the MacBook Pro line up to pair with rivals from Dell, Razer and HP. But Apple will also hope that the more efficient, newer processors will help it live up to its promises of a 10-hour battery life, of which the 13in MacBook Pro fell well short.
