Apple Mac Pro shames pathetic Microsoft

The latest and greatest computer. . . from Apple, of course! (Meanwhile, Microsoft and its OEMs only want to make Win8.x touch-screen tablets posing as PCs) --

Apple’s Mac Pro to go on sale Thursday - The Washington Post: "... The Mac Pro, a cylindrical tower that gives it a radically different look than previous Apple desktops, is aimed squarely at the high-end of the market, with a $3,000 price tag. 
Apple is highlighting the computer’s power as its main selling point, promoting how it could be useful for professional or semi-professional music producers, videographers and photographers in presentations about the computer. The new Mac Pro has a 3.7 Ghz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12 GB of RAM, two FirePro D500 graphics processing units and 256 GB of flash storage. 
Apple also has a $4,000 model with a different processor and more RAM. Users can also opt for upgrades to the processors, GPUs and RAM, and Apple offers the option to upgrade to 1TB of flash storage....
Each Mac Pro bears the inscription, “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in the U.S.A.” (read more at link above)
