Apple has finally announced the launch of its most powerful computer yet, the $5000 iMac Pro

  • Apple said the iMac Pro will go on sale on Thursday.
  • The iMac Pro is a high-performance macOS desktop with a $US4,999 starting price.

Apple snuck in one more product launch before the end of 2017. Apple announced on Tuesday that it will sell the iMac Pro starting on Thursday.

The iMac Pro will be a performance beast, with high-performance Intel Xeon processors, powerful AMD graphics card options, and a distinctive “space grey” finish.

It also comes with a big price tag – prices for the computer start at $US4999 and can get even higher depending on which options you choose. Users can upgrade to 128GB of RAM, 4TB of storage, and even an 18-core Intel Xeon processor.

The screen is a 27-inch “Retina” display with a 5120-by-2880 pixel resolution.

It’s meant for audio and visual professionals who know they need computing power and are willing to pay for it. Apple first announced the iMac Pro earlier this year and promised it would ship in December.
