Apple announced the iMac Pro back at WWDC in June of 2017. Apple calls it the ‘most powerful Mac ever’ and it features space gray casing and accessories to help illustrate its power. The iMac Pro went on sale on December 14, 2017, starting at $4,999 for the base model, and reaching above $13,000 for higher end models.

The all-in-one powerhouse is headlined by its multi-core Intel Xeon processor options, including the base model 8-core, along with 10-, 14-, and 18-core upgrade options. In addition, the iMac Pro can be configured with 32, 64, or 128GB of 2666MHz DDR4 ECC RAM, up to 4TB of flash storage, and features AMD’s Radeon Vega 56 or Vega 64 GPUs.
