The Mac Pro is a beast, but to the chagrin of some hardcore panel lovers, it only has the grunt to support three 4K displays. That's no slouch, but of course, someone on YouTube had to see just how far it could go. The result? Six 4K screens attached to a powerful custom setup that can be replicated for your MacBook Pro or even a MacBook Air.

There hasn't been a properly new Mac Pro for a very long time. The original Mac OS X workstation for creative professionals — video editors, commercial photographers, 3D animators — was released in 2006, and the giant cheese grater suffered a ploddingly slow upgrade cycle that meant that plenty of its former fanboys jumped ship to iMacs, MacBooks Pro or Windows boxes.

Apple's Mac Pro is an absolutely stunning machine.

I love the Mac Pro. I love its simplicity and its ingenious engineering. And I would like it even more if it were encapsulated in glass, like in these 3D renderings created by our friend Martin Hajek, who painstakingly modelled its guts following Apple's transparent prototype displayed at WWDC 2013.
Early computers were bland beige boxes — meant to blend in with whatever workspace they were placed on.

In some ways, the new Mac Pro returns to that era — and here’s a speculative rendering to prove it.
Today was like an Apple ChristmaHanuKwanzaakah, with a bounty of dreamy new machines and upgrades unveiled in all their slim, retina-displaying, glory. Not included among the redesign group, however, were the iMac and the Mac Pro (though Mac Pro did get a quiet, unannounced internal upgrade, in three configurations).
