Apple unveils the new iMac Pro desktop.

People working with real-time 3D rendering, high megapixel photography, video editing, elaborate productions, massive audio projects and real-time 4k and 8k video editing, need this kind of processing power. This is according to Apple’s report.

The iMac Pro intends to calm the long term Apple professional users. Since 2013, the company has lost favor among its users after neglecting to upgrade its professional workstation, Mac Pro. Because of this neglect, Mac Pro lost a considerable number of its users to its rival, Windows.

Another report says that the company is working on a new version of Mac Pro. The new version machine will be in the form of a modular PC-like design, with a new “high-end Pro” display.

Microsoft has also been upping its game in the PC world. In 2016, Microsoft Company announced the Surface studio desktop PC aimed at professional designers

But in October this year, Microsoft unveiled a New Surface Book 2 laptop. The Surface Book 2‘s signature feature is a detachable screen that can act as a tablet.  The laptop competes with Apple’s MacBook Pro and is targeting professional users.

iMac Pro is a powerful computer, but not up-gradable. But it is the best option for developers, designers and other professionals like movie makers who can afford it.
