The iMac Pro is finally available to buy to walk-in customers in brick and mortar Apple Stores.

Apple’s “most powerful Mac ever” was previously been made available to buy online on December 14, while online orders started to arrive earlier this week.

Currently available in Apple Stores is the $4,999 8-core model of the iMac Pro, although 10-, 14-, and 18-core models can be ordered online.

The default model iMac Pro boasts 32 gigabytes of RAM, 1 terabyte of SSD storage, AMD’s 8-gigabyte Radeon Pro Vega 56 video card, and a 27-inch Retina 5K display. The iMac Pro looks like a regular iMac, but comes in space gray instead of silver, including its keyboard and trackpad accessories.

In addition, you get four Thunderbolt 3 ports for powering two 5K displays or four 4K displays at once, a 10-gigabit Ethernet port, four USB-A 3.0 ports, an SD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. A new thermal design additionally means the iMac Pro runs 80 percent cooler than a regular Mac. Meanwhile, a special T2 chip — which stores encrypted passwords and acts as a hardware encryption engine — brings a welcome security boost.

The price of Apple’s iMac Pro can extend all the way of to a massive $13,926.98 for a fully kitted-out version.

If you do plan on buying an iMac Pro from your local Apple Store, it’s worth phoning ahead to make sure they have models in stock. Do you plan to buy one? Let us know in the comments below.
