Dividing Apple's desktop line into three neat divisions--Mac mini, iMac and Mac Pro--still leaves you with enough options to make your head spin when it comes time to plunk down your money for new hardware. Here's a run down of what to expect when you go shopping for a new desktop Mac.
As we all wait to see what kind of Black Friday deals Apple.com will post in the morning, resellers of the company’s products are already doing some deep discounting of their own in advance of Cupertino.
Mac Pro users are all about kicking things up a notch -- after all, they’re the last current Mac available with expansion ports, so why not take advantage of them? If you want to truly go nuts, NVIDIA now has a graphics card just for you.
I’m running Mac OS 10.6.4 on my Mac Pro, and I’m confused about 32-bit and 64-bit. What will happen if I restart my Mac holding the 6 and the 4 keys down to boot up into 64-bit? Nobody seems to know at my Mac User Group, so I’d love to share your answer with them.
Apple announced new Mac Pros in late July, but did not place them on sale until last week. These behemoths feature either 4, 8, or even twelve processing cores. Unfortunately, Apple was estimating up to a 10-day wait to get one. Well, that day has finally come for many who were the first to order.
We know, you were bummed when they were first announced last month and you couldn’t place an order for one right away. But the long, tedious wait is now over: Apple has started accepting orders for the new 12-core Mac Pro models. Who’s getting one?
On Tuesday, Apple took the wraps off its long-awaited Mac Pro refresh, but totally copped everyone’s high by announcing that the new desktop models wouldn’t be available until August. As it turns out, you may be able to at least place an order for the new systems beginning on August 9.
With this week's refresh of the iMac and Mac Pro line, Apple chose ATI graphics cards, no longer offering even an option of NVIDIA graphics. There's a lot of rumors as to why Apple made the switch to ATI-exclusive graphics, but new speculation leads to believe that Apple was able to achieve a larger graphics performance boost from the ATI cards instead of NVIDIA cards.
It’s been a long, cruel wait for Mac Pro fans, but Apple has finally delivered for you Tuesday, with a new model packing up to 12 processing cores with Intel Xeon processors. The bad news is, they won’t physically arrive until next month -- but hey, that’s right around the corner, right?
