Apple Mac Pro Review: Conclusion
If looking for a powerful new Mac, most people would do very well with one of Apple’s iMacs. However, if you’re a current Mac Pro owner, a video editing professional or someone who needs serious firepower (the kind of power this Mac Pro review calls “almost absurd”), then the 2013 Mac Pro is a no-brainer.
Apple is also likely to sell more than a few of these sleek Mac desktop PCs to the type of users who care about status and would likely never use a fraction of the machine’s capabilities. The polished black aluminum cylinder definitely makes a visual statement and the $3,000 point of entry means you have to be relatively well-heeled to afford it. At the same time, for a workstation-class PC capable of pumping out 7 Teraflops of processing power, the Mac Pro isn’t wildly over-priced.
Will it succeed? If early sales are any indication (Apple says its American made Mac desktop is in such demand that it won’t have stock for its stores until March), AAPL has made professional Mac buyers happy. In a glowing Apple Mac Pro review, ZDNet predicts Apple’s aluminum monster “will be a surprise hit this year, beating sales expectations.” If that turns out to be the case, AAPL stock investors should be happy, too.
