This Is The Most Expensive Mac Pro You Can Buy

Hot off the assembly line in Texas

When Apple announced a completely redesigned Mac Pro this past summer, the biggest question mark was the price tag. As a company that’s known for selling quality hardware at a premium, would Apple price the Mac Pro ultra-competitively or stick to its infamous ‘Apple tax’?

Well, the most expensive Mac Pro you can buy costs nearly 10K by itself. For normal people, that’s a hard price to swallow. But with two base configurations and plenty of build-to-order options, the real pros have no trouble dropping cash on Apple’s new powerhouse.

Here’s what a maxed out Mac Pro looks like:

Apple Releases Update To Mac Pro Before It Even Arrives On Your Doorstep

mac_pro_2013_03-100041172-orig

The Mac Pro has been on sale for barely 12 hours, and most buyers haven’t even gotten their hands on it yet, but that hasn’t stopped Apple from releasing a firmware update. Today the company put out EFI Firmware Update 2.0 in the Mac App Store.

“This update improves system reliability during reboot, resolves an issue with memory self-test, and improves graphics power management when using Boot Camp,” notes Apple. You can also grab it directly from Apple’s website.

No Mac Pro For Christmas: Shipping Estimates Pushed Back To February

If you haven’t already ordered a new Mac Pro on Apple’s website, don’t count on it arriving before the holidays are over. Shipping estimates for Apple’s just-released Pro have been pushed back to February, which is a sure sign that the computer is facing significant supply constraints.

After being on sale for less than a day, a quick visit to the online Apple store will show that every Mac Pro configuration won’t ship until February. The fact that Apple didn’t start selling it until the latest possible moment in 2013 also speaks to stock shortages. Apple had promised all year that the product would ship by the end of 2013, and it barely fulfilled that promise.

And if you think you’ll be able to just waltz into an Apple Store and pick one up, good luck. Apple’s business clients have had their pick of the litter by now. It’s worth calling an authorized reseller in your area if you’re that desperate, but getting your hands on a Mac Pro before February will be quite the stroke of good luck.

It seemed as though Fadell has snapped up both items himself, but he has today confirmed that he is the owner of neither.
