Apple iMac Pro

 

The Apple iMac Pro is a beautiful ode to creative professionals, combining remarkable computing power with the same brilliant 5k display and sleek design of the iMac.

Intel Xeon CPU and AMD Radeon Vega offer serious computing power. Gorgeous design in Space Gray extends to the wireless peripherals.

Pricey. Performance gains depend upon workflow. Uncomfortable keyboard.

Bottom Line: The Apple iMac Pro is a beautiful ode to creative professionals, combining remarkable computing power with the same brilliant 5k display and sleek design of the iMac.

Apple iMac Pro Review: A Crazy Amount of Power

 

Without a doubt, the iMac Pro is the most powerful Mac ever offered by Apple. It's impressive across the board, from the brilliant 5K display to the powerful hardware inside. If you need a professional workstation for demanding video, rendering or 3D...

Professional-grade processing and graphics power ; Enormous amounts of memory ; Sleek design comes in Space Gray ; Excellent display

Not user-upgradable ; No HDMI ports ; No height adjustment ; Mouse is inoperable when charging

With supercharged processing, workstation-grade graphics and an insane amount of memory, the new iMac Pro is exactly what the most demanding professional needs.

Apple iMac Pro review: is this really the pro-level beast Mac users have been waiting for?

 

Apple unleashes its most powerful desktop ever

Apple iMac Pro review

 

The clue is in the name when it comes to Apple's most powerful Mac

Great performance across a range of tasks ; Excellent integrated 5K display ; The enclosure now looks even better

Single-core performance boost isn’t huge ; Lack of upgrade potential may irk pros

It might look like the same old iMac, but this is a hugely powerful, great-looking machine. But only open your wallet if you really need one.

iMac Pro review

 

Is this the ultimate all-in-one for professionals?

Most powerful Mac ever ; Excellent design ; Keeps cool ; New Space Gray color is ace

Very expensive ; Non user-upgradable ; Magic Mouse 2 still frustrating

The iMac Pro is a powerful, professional all-in-one that certainly won’t be for everyone. It has oodles of power and a huge price tag to match. However, if the iMac Pro is suited for your needs, then you won’t be disappointed.
