A few highlights regarding Apple newly announced, and long-awaited, Mac Pros:
- Up to 12 cores (50% faster performance)
- New ATI Graphics Card
- SDD drive option. Add up to four 512GB solid-state drives — or any combination of solid-state and hard drives.
- Two Mini DisplayPorts and one dual-link DVI port
Because the iMac line has become so powerful, we're seeing fewer people choose to buy a Mac Pro tower. However, anyone who works with video, 3D rendering, or needs large and fast (or redundant) storage will absolutely benefit from the power and expandability of a Mac Pro. Also, in our experience, the Mac Pro towers tend to last longer than the all-in-one iMacs.
