Pretty badass iMac Pro

That is what Apple CEO Tim Cook said revealing the iMac Pro "That iMac pro is pretty badass”.

It took nearly 14 months since the introduction of iMac for the first ever Pro version from Apple to emerge. But unfortunately, the price is prohibitive for ordinary users and meant only for professional with the need for its high-end internals.

The razor-thin flagship product is up to 18 core architecture, and the base model is priced $4,999. That is a 32GB RAM, 1TB storage and the 8-core Intel Xeon W processor. And a higher end version with full specification shall be a whopping $13,500. (For the same reason, you can’t find much of reviews for this product in blogs and media.)

The middle range is a $9,250 IMac pro with 3GHz 10-core Xeon processor, 2TB storage, 128GB RAM and Radeon Pro Vega 64 graphics. The question is again, do you need such pricey stuff anyway?

The head turner powerhouse is a 16GB memory plus the Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2 in that alluring Space Grey for a change. The speakers are hidden at the back. The self-contained unit weighs approximately 10 Kg.

. For a change, the reversible USB lighting cable also changed colour, this time to black.

The iMac Pro provides the option of eight, 10, 14 or 18 cores. The 3.2GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor offers the graphical capacity to new heights. However, the Ram upgrading is not possible

The Pros

The iMac pro is the fastest Mac available is for users who demand multi-core performance. The Mac Pro’s hardware is incredibly powerful, making it ideal for especially pro-level graphics and video tasks. It can give output up to three 4K displays simultaneously, thanks to six Thunderbolt 2 ports  plus HDMI. The system is silent. The smart three-sided motherboard for efficient cooling and space savings make it the clever workstation.

The cons

This is ideal for any computer lover with a rejoinder- if you can afford the prohibitive price of $4949.00 or so for the basic. Ram upgrading is possible but by Apple authorised service centres. Like the most of Apple product, the iMac pro too is not a DIY kit.

The Internal expandability is limited, and even the starting price is high at $3,000 or so. It is not especially suitable for Apple-loving home consumers.

The verdict

The iMac Pro is not for everyone. For common application or day to day work, this is simply extravagant.

The storage capacity is very high.
