    Features


    Intel® Xeon® E5 processor

    Powerful 6-core processing performance. Intel Turbo Boost Technology delivers dynamic extra power when you need it, while increasing energy efficiency when you don't.

    Reams of high-bandwidth DDR3 RAM to smoothly run your graphics-heavy PC games and video-editing applications, as well as numerous programs and browser tabs all at once.

    256GB solid state drive (SSD)

    While offering less storage space than a hard drive, a flash-based SSD has no moving parts, resulting in faster start-up times and data access, no noise, and reduced heat production and power draw on the battery.

    Compact design adds less bulk to your desk

    The 6.6" diameter cylindrical body leaves more room for your desktop setup and documents.

    4 USB 3.0 ports maximize the latest high-speed devices

    USB 3.0 ports are backward-compatible with USB 2.0 devices (at 2.0 speeds).

    6 Thunderbolt 2 ports connect to high-performance devices

    Blazing fast speeds and powerful connectivity for peripherals and high-resolution displays.

    Next-generation wireless connectivity

    Connects to a network on all current Wi-Fi standards. Connect to a Wireless-AC router for speed nearly 3x faster than Wireless-N. Dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports plug into wired networks.

    Bluetooth 4.0 interface syncs with compatible devices

    Wirelessly transfer photos, music and other media between the laptop and your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone or MP3 player, or connect Bluetooth wireless accessories.

    The redesigned translucent interface provides streamlined access to powerful search tools and notifications, plus simple integration with compatible iOS devices.

    Multimedia software package included

    Pages®, Keynote®, Numbers®, Photos, iMovie® and GarageBand®.

    Additional ports

      Perfect for graphic and video production. Boot times are amazing. FAST processing times in apps like Photoshop (and I'm talking about large GB files). I'm able to work close to real-time when rendering video and applying FX in Final Cut Pro X. My last project took about one-third the time to complete, thanks to it's quick rendering abilities. This New MacPro walks all over my previous G5 MacPro! I was a little apprehensive with its physical size compared to my previous behemoth. But, dynamite comes in small packages these days! AND it can actually sit on my desktop! I was initially concerned with the 256 GB solid state hard drive. Knowing I would eat up that space quickly with video, I chose to also purchase an external Thunderbolt 4TB G-Drive RAID to store files and video footage. The internal hard drive is devoted to only the operating system and application installations. While there are a few things I wish were different, overall I'm HIGH IMPRESSED. Kudos to Apple!

      Gave it a 4 because of the steep price. All in all, I know I am getting a beast of a machine. I haven't used it really to edit a feature yet but my MacBook Pro edited 2 feature films like a champ when it probably shouldn't have been able to. To have the capability to have 6 hard drives running is super cool! I have 5 running right now while creating a DVD file! This is twice the horsepower and I will update this review when I really put it to the test.

      I'm a designer and deciding this or a high spec iMac, I went with the 6-core iMac. It's costly, but I wanted someone that would last me awhile and handle all the programs with ease. This computer is amazing. It loads and processes programs super fast and easy without any hiccup. I definitely recommend!

      The only thing I can say bad about this computer is that I wish the power button was on the front. The computer is soooooo fast as soon as you click on anything it will open immediately. Very pricey but well worth the money if you are a power user. This computer is for professionals or someone who loves getting thing done quickly.

      This unit is lightning fast and so quiet, that live recording for voice overs and music is no problem. I bought a solid state external La Cie thunderbolt 500 Gb. Drive to hold a projects and their necessary files. I got the sixteen gigs of ram to facilitate light animation for some clients. The construction of the unit is solid and inconspicuous.

      This is just an amazing machine. Incredibly fast. And a great price too. I bought mine online here at Best Buy, I got it right away and set it up and have never looked back. The graphics on this computer are amazing. This is one of Apple's best professional machines and it worth every penny.

      I upgraded from a 7 year old Mac tower Pro Quad Core -- a very solid workhorse after my LCD Cinema display finally died. The Mac Pro - 6-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor - 16GB Memory - 256GB Flash Storage is great. The set-up was simple and easy -- 2 hours --and my production is better than ever.
