Most notably, Caleb Sasser was given a few days to play around with Apple's upcoming iMac Pro and took to Twitter to relay a brand new T2 chip. And that's mainly due to the fact that it is the first-ever iMac Pro.

The iMac Pro uses AMD's Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU, which comes with 8 GB of HDM2 memory, as the baseline.

HiRise Pro is a handsome, modern stand that boosts your iMac, iMac Pro, or external display, to one of four height variations for reduce neck strain while working.

Apple will launch the new iMac Pro on Thursday Dec. 14, the company said Tuesday. Those with incredibly deep pockets (or perhaps, sizable cryptocurrency holdings) can outfit an iMac Pro with up to an 18-core Xeon chip, a whopping 128GB of DDR4 ECC RAM and up to 4TB of SSD storage with 3GB/s throughput.

Apple's baseline for CPU horsepower is an eight-core Intel Xeon processor, but you can bump that up to 10 cores or 18 cores of performance, depending on how much processing power you really need.

The iMac Pro will be available for pre-orders on December 14 and will start at $4,999. A 1 TB SSD is standard equipment, and 2 TB and 4 TB versions are also available.

Buyers will have a number of options with respect to memory and storage.

The high price of iMac Pro is the only barrier which can stop people from moving to Windows where they can get many useful features at pretty low prices. The iMac Pro has four Thunderbolt 3 ports, which means users can connect two 5K monitors. Apple was tight-lipped as to the manufacturer and interface used for the SSDs, but given the computers' price tags and pro-duty aspirations, we'd imagine they're speedy NVMe units. You'll also find four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, 10Gb Ethernet, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an SDXC card slot. The device's itself comes in a hot new space gray colour, and Apple is also bringing the fresh splash of colour to the Magic Keyboard, the Magic Mouse 2, and the Magic Trackpad 2.
