Earlier this week, Apple confirmed that the iMac Pro, its most powerful all-in-one desktop computer ever, would go on sale today, December 14.
And sure enough, that is indeed the case. Apple has officially listed the iMac Pro on its online store. The price starts at $4,999, which is certainly a high price point of entry, but the powerhouse machine appears to be worth the cost based on the hands-on reports that came in earlier this week.
At that price point, the iMac Pro features a 27-inch 5K display, a 3.2GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor (Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz), 32GB 2666MHz ECC RAM, 1TB SSD storage, Radeon Pro Vega 56 with 8GB HBM2 memory, 10Gb Ethernet, and four Thunderbolt 3 ports. At the time of publication the iMac Pro wasn’t listed at any Apple Stores for in-store pickup just yet. Standard delivery sees the iMac Pro arriving between December 27 and December 28, so there will still be a bit of a wait before it arrives even if you order first thing today.
The new desktop computer has a Space Gray design, and it also comes with a Space Gray Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad 2, and Magic Keyboard with Numeric Pad to match the aesthetic.
The iMac Pro can be configured in a variety of ways, depending on what you’re looking for in the workstation. That includes up to a 10-core Intel Xeon W processor, 128GB of RAM, Vega 64 graphics, and 2TB of built-in storage. In that particular configuration, the iMac Pro would cost you $9,599.00.
The price can get even higher though, thanks to the 14- and 18-core Intel Xeon W processor variants. In those cases you can pay $10,000 or more to get your new most-powerful iMac ever. But the 14- and 18-core iMac Pro models will not be available until early 2018, so you’ll have a bit more time to save up.
If you’re curious, AppleCare+ costs $169 for the iMac Pro — the same price it costs for the company’s standard iMac lineup, so that’s good news.
Now that the iMac Pro is available to buy, do you, or anyone you know, plan on picking one up?
