Cutting Edge Mac Pro   

Using a desktop used to mean finding space for a large, ugly box that would hum and groan as it worked away on the tasks it had been assigned. While there are still desktops that utilise the large, box-like case, Apple recently decided to do things a little bit different. With its new Mac Pro, Apple changed the game. No more big lumpy boxes, the new Mac Pro looks like it could be a work of art. Black, sleek and perfectly round, the new Mac Pro features Apple design at its very best. But, what does it have to offer in terms of functionality?   When creating its new design, Apple took into account all the things that were required to make a pro computer work as a pro computer. These included graphics, storage, expansion, processing power and memory. Apple simply looked for the best, most forward-looking way possible to engineer each one of them. In terms of performance, this little beauty has it all under the hood. Dual GPUs, PCIe-based flash storage, a high-performance Thunderbolt 2, new-generation Xeon processors, ultrafast memory and support for 4K video – it’s all there. But how can it possibly pack that much power into such a small amount of space? Cleverly, the Mac Pro utilises a unified thermal core and a single fan that not only works incredibly well, but is also incredibly quiet. Add to that easy expansion and awesome connectivity, and it seems Apple is on to a winner.   

Buying the Mac Pro

Whether it’s an older Mac Pro, or a brand spanking new one, the place to find a great range of Mac Pro options is eBay. Shop Apple desktops and compare them to desktop PCs, then narrow the search by processor type, memory, hard drive capacity and storage type. Buy brand new for the latest tech, or buy used to save some cash.
