When Apple introducedat Monday, it announced the price of the entry-level configuration: $5,999.
And yes, that's a lot of money to spend on a computer. But it's peanuts next to what we expect the most premium configuration to cost. International pricing has not yet been revealed, but that base price converts roughly to £4,735 and AU$8,600.
Though Apple detailed the wide range of the Mac Pro's technical components and capabilities (and showed off thatwith it) it declined to include the prices for the more advanced versions ahead of the machine's expected fall launch.
We'll likely have to wait until the Mac Pro is available for preorder -- probably later this summer -- to learn the sordid specifics of exactly how much you'll be able to spend on that top configuration.
For now, we can simply gawk at the technical specifications of what's sure to be the most powerful and priciest product Apple has ever released to the public.
