A Fully-Pimped Mac Pro Costs £11,689

By Gerald Lynch on at

Chump change, huh? But what's inside the priciest bit of kit currently in Apple's stores?

£11,689 bags you the bin-shaped powerhouse configured with a 2.7GHz 12-core processor with 30MB of L3 cache, 64GB (4 x 16GB) of 1866MHz DDR3 ECC RAM, 1TB of PCIe-based flash storage, Dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM each, a Magic Trackpad and Magic Mouse, Apple's own Wireless Keyboard, a Sharp 32-inch PN-K321 4K Ultra HD LED monitor (with a 2m Thunderbolt cable to connect it up), and one year's AppleCare Protection Plan cover specifically for the Mac Pro.

And don't think you can go scrimping on that AppleCare -- if ever there's been an Apple device to cause a mental breakdown should it, er, breakdown, it's the top tier Mac Pro. [Apple]
