Apple Mac Pro review

Apple's latest Mac Pro workstation now features Intel’s Xeon Nehalem. We put it through its paces.

Verdict

The Mac Pro is typically Apple - it deliver great performance and is extremely well designed, but it’s also expensive with limited hardware options. As such it’s not the right choice of workstation for everybody but as ever, to use one is to want one.
