That collective gasp you heard was the sound of visual artists everywhere as Apple revealed the price of their new top-of-the-line iMac model: the iMac Pro.
Announced some time ago but only available for sale just yesterday, the iMac Pro is Apple’s Mac Pro line configured for the iMac’s aluminium unibody design. The Mac Pro does not come with a monitor included (it’s design is also compared to a sleek office trash can) while the iMac Pro, like all iMacs, comes with monitor included.
While Apple’s dominance of the visual arts niche of the tech world has lessened over time as competitive devices and software has emerged on other platforms, for many Apple’s products still remain the gear of choice for media.
The iMac Pro will come in two configurations, an eight-core variant and a ten-core variant, the most basic of which will cost around $USD 5000.
