Service & support

 

Apple Mac Pro Dual-Core Xeon 5150 2.66 GHz

Attractive exterior, innovative interior; great value for the baseline configuration; strong multicore CPU performance.

Configuration options are not as comprehensive as Dell's; weak support plan.

Apple's Mac Pro has design innovations that we hope will cross over to other systems. Its performance is as strong as you'd expect for a system in its class, and it's priced right, too. You might need more flexibility in your config options, especially...

Apple Mac Pro Xeon/2.4GHz (8 Core)

 

These days, the consumer-oriented iMacs stand on their own against (and in some cases, surpass) the Mac Pro in day-to-day performance. Does that mean that the Mac Pro has lost ...

Mac Pro/8-Core Xeon 2.26GHz

 

The first update to Apple's high-end desktop in more than a year features a new system architecture along with Nehalem versions of Intel's Xeon processors. Nehalem is the code-name Intel has given a new micro-processor architecture that features...

Upon opening the case, you immediately notice major changes in the layout of the components. The memory modules are no longer installed on two sliding trays—instead, the memory and processor all rest on a sled at the bottom of the case, which you...

Apple Mac Pro 2007 review

 

With gorgeous looks and awesome power, the Mac Pro is the ultimate creative machine

Awesomely powerful and beautifully designed, limited gaming ability is the Mac Pro’s only shortcoming

Apple Mac Pro 8-Core 2.93GHz review

 

Apple stole a march on other computer manufacturers with its latest range of Mac Pro computers, being the first company to include Intel's Xeon 3500 and 5500 Quad Core processors.

It’s probably best not to think about the price when looking at a maxed-out system such as this. Clearly, with a price approaching the £5k mark, the 8-Core Mac Pro with a 2.93GHz CPU is a specialist system that’s beyond both the budget and means of...

Mac Pro 2.66GHz 12-core review

 

At £3,999, is the Mac Pro 2.66GHz 12-core worth the additional investment?

The fastest option for running applications that take advantage of all 12-cores (or 24 virtual cores)

Hefty price; most users really won’t need all that power and a big hole in their pocket; there’s a faster 6-core option if it’s speed you want

At four grand the 12-core Mac Pro is no impulse buy. Nor is it the fastest Mac you can buy, that accolade goes to the BTO 6-core 3.33GHz Mac Pro; it beats the standard 12-core model by just two points, but costs £1,040 less. However, if you’re using...
