Apple’s New Mac Pro Will Ship in December

Mac_Pro_2013Can’t innovate anymore, my ass,” Apple SVP of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller said when unveiling the company’s behemoth new Mac Pro in June. “This is, without a doubt, the future of the pro desktop.”

Is the new Mac Pro the showstopper machine that Apple claims? We’ll soon find out. During a special event in San Francisco on Tuesday, Schiller said the Mac Pro will ship in December — “before the end of the year,” he added. Price: $2,999.

“It’s a computer that packs an incredible amount of power into a chassis one-eighth the volume of the current Mac Pro,” Schiller said. “It’s got the fastest processor we’ve ever put in a Mac. … And it’s got the fastest memory we’ve ever put in a Mac, too … up to seven teraflops of computing power.”

Like Apple’s other hardware, the new Mac Pro is “environmentally friendly,” Schiller said. It will also be manufactured in the United States.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
