"This will be our fastest and most powerful Mac ever, which brings workstation-class computing to iMac for the first time", said John Ternus, Apple's vice president of hardware engineering at the event.

The Apple iMac Pro will be available for purchase starting December 14.

THE new iMac Pro will be released in a matter of days, giving Apple fans something to get excited again. At the event, the company termed the high-end desktop as its "most-powerful Mac ever made". The machine includes a 27.5-inch display with a 5K resolution, which is driven by AMD Radeon Vega graphics cards (up to 16GB of VRAM is supported on iMac Pros). Also onboard are four Thunderbolt 3 (or USB Type-C) ports, flanked by a 10Gb Ethernet port.

While outwardly all that distinguishes the iMac Pro from any other iMac is the dark gray finish, it's a completely different computer on the inside he said. A United Kingdom price has not yet been confirmed, however given the similarities in pricing between the USA and United Kingdom models of the Mac Pro (both 2,999), expect the cost to be similar.

Snow disrupts flights, roads across Europe
Like other airlines, we are experiencing some delays and cancellations". "As soon as it's safe we'll start operations again". Three New York services were cancelled as well as two each to Dubai and Toronto, with many Asian flights also cancelled.

The new iMac Pro supports WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2 standards. The iMac Pro also boasts a processor with up to 18 cores and one terabyte of storage configurable up to two or four terabytes.

All the accessories also come in the new color scheme, including a new Magic Keyboard with a numeric keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2.

Given what's inside the iMac Pro, however, I can't see anybody using one and feeling like they don't have quite enough power under the hood.

The iMac Pro has been advertised by Apple as the "killer iMac" for the pros and a "lean, mean dream machine". According to a report in 9to5 Mac, the 4- and 18-core iMac Pro versions are likely to be available in late 2018. Users who keep a lot of data on internal storage may need the 2 TB or 4TB upgrades, but those who rely on external storage options may opt to save the money, depending on how pricey the larger drives turn out to be.
