The iMac Pro, designed for a select group of individuals who require the impressive computing power, will retail at a starting price of RM20,999. The high-end Mac will be available at a starting price of $4,999 (approximately Rs 3,22,400).

And with a new space gray enclosure and gorgeous 27-inch Retina 5K display with support for 1 billion colors, iMac Pro is as stunning as it is powerful.

Upgrading to a 10-core CPU, 64GB RAM and the Radeon Pro Vega 56 with 16GB increases the price to $7,199. The new iMac will also come with up to 128GB of RAM and 4TB of storage. As you can not upgrade the iMac Pro, you need to choose the right configuration from the get-go. "[The] iMac is the most popular desktop for our pro users due to its incredible display and elegant design, so we completely re-engineered it to deliver performance far beyond what anyone thought possible in an all-in-one". There will be four different models available, one with an 8 core processor, another with a 10 core processor, a 14 core processor model and an 18 core processor model. And if you aren't sure, keep in mind you won't be able to circle back later and buy your matching peripherals, as Apple's online configurator notes: "Space Gray accessories are available only at the time of your iMac Pro purchase".
