It looks like Apple's iMac Pro is going to that big computer showroom in the sky. The $4,999 standard model is still available on Apple's site, but only while current supplies last -- once they're gone, the iMac Pro will no longer be available, Apple told us Saturday.

Released in 2017, the iMac Pro was touted by Apple at the time as "by far the most powerful iMac we've ever made" and was aimed at professionals who needed really fast processing and lots of computing horsepower. But the machine hasn't gotten any significant hardware upgrades since then.

The 27-inch iMac that debuted in August of last year can be configured to address the needs of professionals and now becomes the go-to iMac for pros, Apple told us Saturday, adding that buyers who want expandability and more power can turn to the Mac Pro.

Apple is getting ready to revamp its iMac line of desktop computers, Bloomberg reported in January.
