The price of the Mac Pro is ridiculous, especially with a couple of upgrades, but still I'm kind of glad they're not giving up on desktop hardware. Portable is really where Apple shines, of course, but I'd really hate to see Apple becoming a portable-only company just because that's where they make the most money.

That said, I'm more glad they're not getting rid of the Mac Mini, which is a far cooler device in my view. :mrgreen:

However, here's why people interested in the Mac Pro should still be cautious: :)



Someday the Mac Pro's specs will be outdated and then who knows when they'll update it, or even keep on supporting it.

I have been saving 6000$ over the years for this only!
I will be glad to spend 1000$ for a stand... :)

There will be better graphics cards available than the 580X that won't cost over $2,000.

An 8 TB of storage option will be added as well.

With all of that having been said, however, the Mac Pro will soon get more expensive. Currently, the Mac Pro maxes out at 4 TB of SSD storage, but Apple says an 8 TB option will be available soon.

There will also be two new graphics card options for the Mac Pro “soon.”
  • Radeon Pro W5700X with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory
  • Two Radeon Pro W5700X with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory each
From 9 to 5 Mac

Don't know what you're all complaining about - I see we get a keyboard and magic mouse thrown in. Bargain!

As for delivery, for me:

This makes no sense. Built in Austin TX and people in the USA have to wait till January 27th to get one ????
OK this was information I saw earlier today on Apple.com which only applies to a steeply upgraded (max) Mac Pro and not the more "reasonably" priced version which goes for $10,000 or less.

I put one in a cart and started checkout and it shows only a one to two week wait time to receive. Better make sure the delivery person doesn't leave it on your front porch when you're not home. LOL.

Weird.

Maybe the largest numbers of pre-orders are from overseas so they've sent stock there? Or maybe because they can charge more than in the domestic market ...:confused:
