Apple left the world with mouths agape when it revealed the groundbreaking, cylindrical next-generation Mac Pro at WWDC 2013. And today, the tech giant has announced that the base model pro desktop will start selling in December for a cool US$2,999 (approx. RM10,499).

Trust Apple to redefine what a desktop workstation looks like .and functions. The sleek chassis is an outstanding one-eighth of the volume of the previous generation Mac Pro tower.

It isn’t just good looks of course. The new chassis features a revolutionary custom unified heatsink and fan design which makes it as quiet as a Mac mini.

The new Mac Pro packs twice the performance with the latest Intel Xeon E5 “Ivy Bridge” quad-core processors rated at 3.7Ghz, up to 64GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro GPU with up to 6GB VRAM, up to 1TB of next-generation PCI Express solid state storage.

The Mac Pro also sports six Thunderbolt 2 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet jacks, and HDMI output.

Overall, the new Mac Pro unleashes 7 teraflops of compute power and would be able to effortlessly edit full 4K video, while rendering effects in the background. This should keep the pros happy, for now. (one question would be – where the hell is Final Cut Pro, Motion updates, Apple?).

The new Mac Pro is proudly designed and built in the United States. Naturally, the new tower comes pre-installed with OS X Mavericks.

Pros for generations have always ranted about Macs upgradability, and the new Mac Pro’s new chassis could possibly be the most ‘closed’. We’ll see what they say when the Mac Pros are made available.
