How much will the new Mac Pro cost?

PapaRiver

I am seriously loving everything I’ve seen about the new Mac Pro so far, and not just the super cool cylinder exterior. What’s not to love about a Mac where the “base” model has a 3.2Ghz quad core Intel Xenon E5, 2 killer AMD Firepro GPUs, next-gen PCI Express flash storage, etc., etc. What I haven’t seen is how much it will cost. I know Apple hasn’t officially released the price, but Is there any "unofficial" pricing information out there for the new Mac Pro?

Too much for my budget! Heh. Probably at least $3000 or so. That's okay, I'll get by with my iMac. It's slower and not as cool, but it works fine for me.

Apple hasn’t released any pricing info yet, as you noted, but I would not be surprised if it costs $3000-$4000, depending on exactly what you get. That’s only a little more than the current generation Mac Pro, and it is a lot of money, but you do get a lot of Mac goodness.
