Apple's Redesigned Mac Pro Now Available for Online Orders

In line with yesterday's announcement, Apple's redesigned Mac Pro is now available for order through the company's online stores. The Mac Pro currently ships by December 30, though upgraded versions list a non-specific "January" shipping estimate.

The new Mac Pro is available in two stock configurations, starting with a $2999 model equipped with a 3.7 GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12 GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D300 graphics chips, and 256 GB of flash storage. A higher-level $3999 model bumps the specs to a 3.5 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and dual AMD FirePro D500 graphics. Additional build-to-order options are available for up to a 12-core processor, 64 GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D700 graphics, and 1 TB of flash storage.

Aside from the two stock models, build-to-order options can be configured individually, with pricing compared to the base $2999 Mac Pro as follows:

CPU (Stock: 3.7GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5)
- 3.5GHz 6-Core: +$500
- 3.0GHz 8-core: +$2000
- 2.7GHz 12-core: +$3500

Graphics (Stock: Dual AMD FirePro D300 with 2GB GDDR5 each)
- Dual AMD FirePro D500 with 3 GB GDDR5 each: +$400
- Dual AMD FirePro D700 with 6 GB GDDR5 each: +$1000

RAM (Stock: 12GB 1866MHz DDR3 ECC - 3x4GB)
- 16GB (4x4GB): +$100
- 32GB (4x8GB): +$500
- 64GB (4x16GB): +$1300

Flash Storage (Stock: 256GB PCIe-based)
- 512GB: +$300
- 1TB: +$800

The Mac Pro also includes options to add on both Apple's 27-inch Thunderbolt Display and Sharp's 32-inch 4K Display that Apple temporarily began offering in Europe in early December. The Sharp display is available for $3595. Mac Pro buyers can also choose to add on a newly released matching black Thunderbolt cable, available in 0.5 and 2 meter lengths for $29 or $39, respectively.

A fully loaded 12-core Mac Pro with 64GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs and 1TB of PCI-e based flash storage retails for $9599 in the United States.

It's so beautiful that if I had the money I would buy one. Even if it was just to stare at it.

I like how a $3,000 computer doesn't come with a mouse/trackpad and keyboard included and was really hoping for an update for that ugly white keyboard anyway.

And also upset there isn't a Thunderbolt Display refresh.

i am a little puzzled why apple cannot even give a keyboard away with it :confused: As it's much like buying a high spec vehicle and not getting the wheels.

A maxed out Mac Pro for 9,600€??? :eek:

Apple is insane. No thank you. Especially not with the 1:1 exchange rate they are using for prices. The dollar is so weak right now, that after subtraction of the tax from the German prices, the machine would still cost around 11,000$, compared to 9,600$ in the US store. That makes a price difference of 1,400$!!!! That is a small Macbook Pro!

I am so sick of paying a premium all the time just because I am in Europe. Apple should be ashamed of milking their customers like that. :mad:

No Mac Pro for me any time in the near future. My old one will still serve me well for a long time to come.... Especially when I see the relatively disappointing benchmarks of the Mac Pros.


I think your anger should be directed to the European Union and your own government. I'm sure Apple would be very happy to sell you their products at US prices.

How many of those comparing US prices to those around the world are factoring in the US sales tax to the US price? Not many by the looks of it

Or factoring in the extra years warranty that you get in Europe/Australia which adds to the price.. not many by the looks of it
