Mac Pro review – Mac Pro specs – Should i buy the new Mac Pro – Buy Mac Pro?

mac-pro-reviewThe new Mac Pro is out.  And I’d argue that it’s small footprint may compete with consumers going with that versus the iMac.  If you already have a big Apple monitor or another one, why not go with the Mac Pro?  Well, one thing may hold you back, the space.  It comes with a 256GB solid state drive (SSD) and may only be upgraded to 1GB of space.

That’s really not a lot especially since the Mac desktops have always been produced to be work-horse, picture-editing, video-chugging machines.  Of course, you can put in a higher capacity hard drive up to 4GB or such after you buy the machine.  But, you are limited to really one drive since the whole Mac Pro is a tiny, consolidated unit.

Beyond the lack of storage space, the Mac Pro is pretty fast and can tap out at 64GB of RAM along with a 3.7GHZ quad-core Xeon processor.  It also has four USB 3.0 ports, six thunderbolt 2 connections, one HDMI port, bluetooth 4.0 port, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi connection.  The gravy part is that it may support up to 4K TVs with 4K video output.  If you’re a TV buff, buying the Mac Pro is a no-brainer.

Expect to pay a pretty penny for the Mac Pro support at roughly $2,500 – $3,000.  Hey, it’s the Apple support team who produced this after all!  Should you buy it?  If you don’t have a lot of files to save on your computer, then yes, it’s a great Mac product to try.  However, if you need to save directly to your drive and not online, it’s not the Mac for you.
