Cost of an iMAC
The iMac Pro configuration starts at a regal sum of $4,999 (about £3,870), but at that high price point, you can hardly get an all-in-one that includes a 27-inch Retina 5K display, 8-core Intel Xeon processor, AMD Radeon Vega graphics, 32GB ECC memory and a 1TB SSD.
For those of us that wont require that kind of specs can you can already buy a refurbished 2017 iMac from Apple starting at $1,099 .
That’s $1,099 (£1,049) to start for the 21.5-inch iMac and $1,799 ($1,749) for the 27-inch model to start. The iMac Retina 4K 21.5-inch model.
Design of An iMac
The iMac Pro seems much like a standard iMac, with the ultra-thin slim-bodied design and a minimal footprint, but has a unique space gray enclosure and a new thermal design that delivers 80% more cooling room and 75% more airflow to support up to 500W of power, which equates to 67% more powerful than the previous iMac versions.
The new thermal design gives a wider ventilation grill at the back of the machine.While standard 27-inch iMacs feature at the back that allows RAM to be upgraded, there is no such hatch in the iMac Pro, as it is not upgradeable.
iMac Pro’s can only get their RAM upgraded at Apple retail store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
The iMac Pro, has 4 Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, 4 USB-A 3.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and an SD card slot.
Alike the regular 27-inch iMac, the iMac Pro features a Retina 5K display that holds a billion colors with a P3 wide color gamut. It has more than 14.7 million pixels and a 500 nit brightness level, which is 43 percent brighter than previous iMac displays.
