2013 Mac Pro ▪ April 24, 2014

 

Mac Pro 3-5 weeks

While it is still not readily available for purchase, 2013 Mac Pro shipping dates are gradually starting to improve since it debuted in late December last year. You still can’t walk in to an Apple Store or similar retailer and walk out with a new Mac Pro, but you might just get it in less than a month from the time you order it. Shipping estimates from Apple.com have dropped down to three to five weeks for the first time since the new machine debuted at the end of last year; previous shipping estimates pegged shipping at five to six weeks… expand full story

2013 Mac Pro ▪ February 5, 2014

If you are wondering how the new Mac Pro does in gaming, here’s a little taste of Crysis running in 4800×1800 mode in Boot Camp. Thanks

I’d probably opt for a single big 4K display myself but if you have 6 27-inch displays laying around…

2013 Mac Pro ▪ January 14, 2014

It’s no secret that Apple’s Late 2013 Mac Pro looks strikingly similar to a (really futuristic, shiny, insanely great) trash can; take a look for yourself. You can even replace the Trash icon on your OS X Dock with a… Mac Pro. Let’s just agree there’s a certain…resemblance.

That inspired one Apple fan to build a Hackintosh based on the new Mac Pro design using, yes, an actual trash can (specifically, an Authenics Lunar <–check scale) for the casing. The result isn’t exactly as powerful as the Mac Pro sold today by Apple; this specific build lacks Thunderbolt support and its processor is a Haswell i3 that you might find in a much cheaper PC.

Nevertheless, the final product is down right fascinating to see. Check it out below: expand full story

Shortly after going live on the Apple Store site, the Mac Pro is starting to appear on third-party reseller sites. While you’re unlikely to get your hands on one any sooner than buying via Apple (which currently lists Dec 30th as shipping dates), it can’t hurt to make a few calls.

You may also be able to save yourself the sales tax. B&H, which has the machines on pre-order, only charges sales tax in NY, and MacMall charges sales tax in just five states (and that’s in addition to the whopping $5 discount off the base price!) …  expand full story

After three years without a substantial update and several months of teasing and promoting, Apple has finally announced that tomorrow it will begin selling the newly designed and more powerful Mac Pro it first showed off at WWDC back in June. (Full press release below.)

The road was certainly not rapid between update cycles with two years of nary a word on whether or not the Mac Pro line had any life left in it and a full year of teasing and promoting the 2013 model being released tomorrow. Let’s take a look at the Mac Pro saga that led to today’s debut… expand full story

What appears to be a very disappointing Geekbench result for a pre-release version of the new Mac Pro may not tell the whole story, according to a blog entry by Primate Lab’s John Poole.

It had been widely expected that the new Mac Pro would generate a Geekbench score of over 30,000 rather than the 23,901 score posted. Poole suggests that the figure might not be representative of the true performance of the model that will go on sale later this year …  expand full story
