Mac Pro Build-to-Order Pricing Revealed


All-new Mac Pro

Apple gave a sneak peek of the new Mac Pro during WWDC in June. In October, at Apple’s media event, we learned more about the specifications of the Mac Pro and its starting price. The base models of the Mac Pro are priced at $2999 and $3999 [$3099/$4099 in Canada] respectively.


Apple’s website does not yet provide any costs beyond the base configurations. MacRumors has an estimate of the build-to-order upgrade pricing for the Mac Pro. The following prices are estimates relative to the stock model for U.S. customers:

CPU (Stock: 3.5GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5)

– 3.0GHz 8-core: +$1500

– 2.7GHz 12-core: +$3000


Graphics (Stock: Dual AMD FirePro D500 with 3GB GDDR5)

– Dual AMD FirePro D700 with 6 GB GDDR5: +$600


RAM (Stock: 16GB 1866MHz DDR3 ECC – 4x4GB)

– 32GB (4x8GB): +$400

– 64GB (4x16GB): +$1600


Flash Storage (Stock: 256GB PCIe-based)

– 512GB: +$300

– 1TB: +$800

The lower end Mac Pro model starts at $2999 and comes with a quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D300 graphics, and 256GB PCIe-based flash storage. The $3999 higher-end stock model of the Mac Pro comes with an upgraded 6-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and dual AMD FirePro D500 graphics.

The Mac Pro is scheduled to launch by the end of December, although Apple has yet to announce any exact date for availability.

    Like a Ferrari is good for driving to work and back.

    actually its more but close to what you pay for the high end stuff we use here for data analysis. Cheaper than a cluster

  • Shameer Mulji

    It isn’t?

  • I think that’s the point. A Ferrari would be a blast for driving to work and back, but no one needs a Ferrari for that task. Any car will do. For those that can afford it, they’re welcome to do as they choose.
