As promised, we finally saw another “pro” product form Apple. This is called the iMac Pro and is intended to replace the Mac Pro. It’s basically a space gray iMac with high performance parts. On the back is the normal assortment of ports. However, we do get 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports in the form of USB-C. Inside is an 8-core Xeon processor but can be upgraded all the way up to 18 cores. You can also get up to 128GB of RAM. For graphics we find Radeon Vega graphics that can be upgraded to 16GB. Pricing for this computer starts at $4,999 and will ship this December.
For those who aren’t willing to spend that much on a computer, Apple also updated the normal iMac with better displays, 7th generation Kabby Lake processors, and 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports. It also has either Intel Iris or Radeon graphics. Thanks to Metal 2, this iMac is considered VR ready and is just the beginning for Apple. This Mac is, indeed, available today for purchase. It starts at $1,099 for the 21.5-inch model.
