Apple finally finds way to lock down new Mac Pros


Apple has launched a new $49 Mac Pro Security Lock Adapter in its online store, giving Mac Pro owners (and Apple Stores) an easy way to secure their machines with existing Kensington locks.

Apple’s lock adapter is a straightforward metal bracket that secures the Mac Pro’s lift-off cover to the machine’s base by way of a security cable, thereby barring access to the machine’s internals. The cable lock can then be secured to make it difficult for thieves to steal the $3,000-plus machine.

Mac Pro is finally available for shipping within 24 hours



Almost exactly one year to the day after being announced, it’s now possible to order a Mac Pro and have it ship to you within 24 hours.

Costing between $3,000 and $4,000, Apple’s gorgeous stealth powerhouse of a machine went on sale December 19, but right from the start began suffering shipping delays due to a limited production cycle. One possible explanation for this was the Mac Pro’s “Made in the USA” status, in contrast to virtually all other Apple products, which are designed in California but assembled overseas — often in China.

See what happens when you stuff a Mac Pro with C4



How much C4 can you stuff in a Mac Pro?

That not a question most Mac Pro owners grapple with but the guys at RatedRR aren’t your average Apple fanboys. In their latest series of Apple destruction videos they’ve decided to pack an ungodly amount of C4 into Apple’s powerhouse machine just to see how big the explosion is.

You Won’t Believe How Much It Costs To Upgrade Your Mac Pro To 128GB Of RAM



Officially, the new trash can Mac Pro only supports up to 64GB of RAM. That’s a lot, but not necessarily enough for the performance-obsessed graphics pros and video editors that Mac Pro is aimed at.

For those that absolutely need 128GB of RAM in their Mac Pro, the memory maestros at Transcend have figured out a way to double the supposed “maximum” amount of memory in a top of the line Mac Pro.

But as with almost everything with the Mac Pro, don’t expect it to be cheap: it will cost you $2,480 to juice your Mac Pro up to that crazy extent.
