Apple still loves you, pro users, but that love will cost you


Apple iMac Pro personal computer comes with the new Radeon Pro Vega GPU, the most advanced graphics ever in a Mac. "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. It will ship with an 8-core Xeon processor, a 10-core processor or an 18GB processor.

- The updated iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are available to order today on, and available to buy in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday, June 7. The iMac Pro might support up to a whopping 128 GB of ECC memory, but the price does start with only 32 GB. And even though this feature is mostly VR-related, users will get the ability to connect a standalone graphics card to their MacBooks Pro in the future.

Apple hasn't given up on its most serious Mac customers.

Apple's also given the rest of the Mac range a refresh. The top-of-the-line 15-inch MacBook Pro will also be powered by an Intel i7 chip chugging along at over 3.1 Ghz.
