Apple Mac Pro review (2013): small, fast and in a league of its own

 

It would be an understatement to say that Apple's Mac Pro workstation was getting a little long in the tooth. As of summer 2012, it was missing Apple's o

Compact, space-saving design ; Strong graphics performance, fast disk speeds ; Runs quietly ; Supports up to three 4K displays

Runs a little warm, and can take a while to cool down ; Many apps still need to be optimized to take advantage of two GPUs

There isn't another computer we know of that's this powerful and also this compact. With a starting price of $2,999, going all the way up to nearly $10,000, it's quite pricey, but for videographers, photographers, animators and other creative...

Apple Mac Pro (2013)

 

The Apple Mac Pro (2013) is a powerhouse in a surprisingly small package, leveraging innovative design and extreme connectivity to completely re-imagine the professional desktop workstation.

Dramatic departure from boring, boxy designs. Powerful performance thanks to Intel Xeon E5 processor and dual AMD FirePro graphics. Supports multiple simultaneous 4K video streams, and a wealth of external expansion options. Lots of ports, with 6...

Expensive, even for an Apple product. No internal access to processor or graphics cards. Warranty is relatively short.

There's no ignoring it, the new Apple Mac Pro (2013) is stunning. Aside from the occasional joke about the resemblance to more mundane objects—garbage cans, coffee makers, wine chillers—the Mac Pro (2013) has been grabbing attention because of it's...

"We're working on something really great for later next year." After years of seemingly neglecting Apple's most hardcore, highest-paying users, a 2012 email from Tim Cook finally gave people...

Can be incredibly fast ; Small, sleek design ; Virtually silent ; Excellent graphics performance

Needs software tuning to get performance right ; Very expensive

Maybe not a must-buy for now, but almost certainly one soon

Apple Mac Pro 2013

 

Apple's new Mac Pro is a stunningly fresh take on the desktop computer. But it's probably not for you.

The Mac Pro 's hardware is incredibly powerful, especially if you're using it for pro-level graphics and video tasks. It can output to up to three 4K displays simultaneously, thanks to six Thunderbolt 2 ports plus HDMI. The system is whisper-quiet,...

Internal expandability is limited, and even the starting price is a hefty $3,000. While it's a very high-design product, the components inside are intended for professional use, and not especially suitable for Apple-loving home consumers.

Apple radically re-imagines the professional desktop with the new Mac Pro, featuring a design that looks fantastic and offers genuine breakthrough advantages. But, consumer-level Apple enthusiasts should note that this product isn't specifically...

Mac Pro review

 

The new Apple Mac Pro is finally here but does it deliver everything it promises?

Stunning ; iconic looks ; Immensely fast and powerful ; Very quiet

Brutally expensive ; No physical media drives ; Needs more optimised software

Following the launch of the Mac Pro in June we've now seen the desktop computer in the flesh, not behind glass at the Apple 22 October event. The Mac Pro

Apple Mac Pro review

 

With a unique design and tremendous power, this is the workstation to beat

Stellar design ; Lots of expansion ports ; Twin GPUs ; Incredible performance ; Removable SSD

Few internal expansion possibilities ; No bundled keyboard or mouse ; No two-processor option ; No optical drive

Not everyone needs the workstation-level power and performance offered by the new Mac Pro, but wouldn't you just love one? It's a masterpiece of engineering and suitably expensive. Fresh ideas such as the unified thermal core and backlit expansion...

Incredible power, excellent value and a stunning case that's as quiet as it is beautiful - the ultimate workstation

On top of all that, it's the most attractive and desirable desktop computers that we've ever seen. If you need a workstation-class computer, the Mac Pro is a landmark computer and our Ultimate choice.
