New Mac Pro Finally Releases Tomorrow: To go on Sale for $2999

When Apple announced the iOS 7, it also gave us a sneak peak into something they were working on. Something beautiful, strikingly resembling a cylinder, the device packed power like no other. It was so beautifully designed that it took us a second or two to realise it indeed was a computer. We were staring at the future Mac Pro, the all powerful Macintosh that had received it’s big design upgrade.

The Mac Pro was showed off once again at the event recently that saw the announcement of the new iPads. The details were a bit more clearer and also Apple gave us the release date, that the powerful system would be available in the markets this December. Finally the date has come, and Mac Pro will go on Sale in the US for $2,999. There is no release date in India yet, but seeing the scene, we do feel it wont be before January next year that we will see it here.

The specs of the Mac Pro go well with it’s cutting edge design. The computer packs a healthy 3.7GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12GB of RAM and a 256GB hard drive. Not just this, there is a six-core Intel Xeon E5 option with dual AMD FirePro D500 GPUs, a 256GB hard drive and 16GB of RAM. The Mac Pro is easily upgradable and the users can add up to about 64 GB of RAM and 1 TB of SSD.

Are you excited about the Mac Pro? Do you by any chance plan to pick one? Let us know.

Apple Reportedly Holding an Event on October 22

Right after revealing the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, just about everyone knew that this is not the last of Tim Cook on stage that we had seen for the year. There have been strong rumors about a Retina display on the new iPad Minis and the iPad is due for a renewal too. As a result was not a bad calculated guess that we would have an Apple event around the end of Q4 of the year.

Looks like the date to mark the calenders is October 22nd when we would have the new iPads as well as the latest Mac OS X Mavericks and the Mac Pro. The news of the date has been broken by All Things D who have in the past been pretty much spotless when predicting Apple launch event dates. For that matter, they were the first to report about the November 10th event which featured the high profile release of the new iPhones.

The most likely venues for the event are Appleā€™s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Interesting to note that the date of October 22nd also coincides with Nokia’s Innovation Showcase as well as the launch of the Surface 2 in the US. But, dead sure, if Apple have an announcement to make, that is where all the eyes and ears will be focused.
