The iMac Pro 2017 was first unveiled during the Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. Yesterday, December 14, 2017, the ‘bad ass’ desktop computer is now made available.

iMac Pro 2017 Features and Specs

The Cupertino-based tech giant is dubbing this device as the fastest and most powerful Mac as of this moment.  It is a 27-inch matte gray computer that is engineered with an 8-core, 10-core or 18-core Xeon processor. Apart from that, the iMac Pro 2017 is powered by up to 22 teraflops of graphics power.

When paralleled with Mac Pro, one can see a huge difference. The Mac Pro is Apple’s cylinder-shaped desktop computer for professionals that come without a display. Meanwhile, the iMac Pro 2017 is an all-in-one system that is equipped with a 5K display.

With this, it is really noticeable that the iMac Pro 2017 is Apple’s latest effort to appease its professional users. It can be recalled that they have been waiting for a long period of time to see the updates for Mac Pro. It is also worth mentioning that the new computer is powerful enough for real-time 3D rendering, video editing, and virtual reality (VR) content project, as reported by CNN.

iMac Pro 2017 Price

The iMac Pro 2017 is tagged starting at $4999; it is also the costliest offering in Apple’s computer lineup. But then, the fastest configuration with all the accessible upgrades costs more than $13,000.

Microsoft (MSFT) has also been doing an effort to appeal to professional users. It can be remembered that last year, the company publicized that the Surface Studio ($2,999) desktop PC is intended for designers. Users can place it upright when they are sketching, painting or editing photos. But then, they can also lay it down when they are drawing.

In October, the company launched the new Surface Book 2, a laptop targeting the professionals that contend with the Apple’s MacBook Pro. The Surface Book 2’s signature feature is a screen that can be disconnected and can act as a tablet.

Additionally, the iMac Pro 2017 isn’t for everyone. Nonetheless, it is a powerful preference for the developers, designers and other professionals who have enough money to buy it. What can you say about iMac Pro 2017? You can share your thoughts and viewpoints in our comments section.
