For a while it seemed as if Apple was getting all lopsided with its desktop line—its 27-inch iMac lines were actually outperforming some of its highest end (not to mention significantly more expensive) Mac Pros. That’s all changed now, though.
As part of the spec increase, the Mac Pros now get up to 3.33GHz quad-core Xeon processor for just a couple of bucks…make that twelve hundred bucks. You can’t get that high-speed processor in the dual-CPU configuration, however, as eight-core configs hit the ceiling at just a little under: 2.93GHz. They’ve also finally added more storage capabilities, as you can now configure Mac Pros with up to 8TB of disk space in four 2TB drives. Expensive? Sure. Stylish and study? You bet.
