Apple's desktop Mac line may finally be getting the Retina update OS X users have been hoping for, with chatter of a 4K model headed to stores around October. Although Retina display technology is already offered on the MacBook Pro and across Apple's iPhone and iPad line, so far the Mac Pro and iMac have stuck with their lower pixel-density panels, despite both computers being easily capable of driving significantly higher resolutions.
Apple may have sneakily disguised the Mac Pro as a trashcan from 2001: A Space Odyssey to help it fly under the radar of thieves, but if you're still concerned then there's now a way to tie the cylindrical computer to your desk. A new Mac Pro Security Lock Adapter basically adds a Kensington lock connector to Apple's flagship desktop, stopping it not only from being stolen altogether, but from being opened up, too.
Supposing you’ve seen the newest Mac Pro on the market and you’ve been waiting for shipping times to decrease to realistic timespans, today you’ll be happy. This tube-shaped desktop computer has had its shipping time decreased to between 1-2 weeks for the first time since it was first offered to the public.
This week the folks at Other World Computing have let it be known that they’re not going to rest with the current Apple-given options for the Mac Pro from 2013. They’re releasing their own OWC 128GB RAM, as it were, made specifically for the Apple Mac Pro 2013. This project will be entirely MaxRAM Certified and includes a number of RAM upgrades between 32GB and 128GB.
The beautiful and only recently available Mac Pro has seen strong consumer demand since its unveiling and launch, something that has prompted Apple to push back the estimated shipping date until April. The change took place today, first for overseas markets, then a short while later for those in the United States and Canada.
This afternoon Apple has shared their financial Q1 2014 results with the public, showing that, in the quarter leading up to the 30th anniversary of the Apple/Mac connection, the company continues to increase sales. This quarter's revenue racked up a cool $6.3 million compared to $5.6 million the quarter before and $5.5 million one year ago at this time.
Some might jeer at Apple's latest Mac Pro design, but it is, of course, no surprise that it has also drawn its fair share of fans. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and a certain user by the name of "sascha288" from a certain German forum has taken that to heart, building his own PC from the ground up to look like none other than the late 2013 model of the Mac Pro.
Apple unveiled its new Mac Pro computer a while back and it went on sale in the US last month. The new Mac Pro has a very interesting design that is round and looks a lot like a vase for flowers. While the Mac Pro has been available in the US continuously for a long time, the same can’t be said for Europe.
This week the folks at iFixit have taken to the Mac Pro for 2013, and under the hood they’ve found some extremely favorable results. In addition to finding what iFixit suggests is "the most repairable Apple products we’ve seen all year." While that’s not exactly the same as the most repairable product they’ve seen all year period, it’s still a real positive marker for the company.
