The sleek, dark grey-coloured machine went on sale on Apple Malaysia's website yesterday, 14 December.

The company announced the new iMac Pro at its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in June, but didn’t offer a firm release date until recently.

The base model iMac Pro includes a 27-inch Retina 5K display, a processor with eight cores, 32GB RAM, and 1TB of storage

The iMac Pro also comes with a new dual centrifugal fan system that generates more airflow to help cool down the powerful hardware.

The machine also delivers incredible compute power for real-time 3-D rendering, immersive VR, intensive developer workflows, high megapixel photography, complex simulations, massive audio projects, and real-time 4K and 8K video editing.

Apple’s decision to release the iMac Pro helped show that the company had not forgotten about its Pro line of desktop products following the Mac Pro, which it released in 2013 and has not updated since.

The tech giant has never been one to shy away from putting premium prices - the iPhone X starts at RM5,149, and its new PC is no exception

The base model retails at RM20,999.

Apple made the iMac Pro with professional users in mind. It is also highly customisable on Apple's online store where customers can select specific tech specs, accessories, and software add-ons like Final Cut Pro X.

When you add in all the hardware, software, and accessory upgrades, the machine adds up to a whopping RM61,816.80

You could easily buy a new car with that price.

The upgrades include a 2.3GHz 18-core Intel Xeon processor, 128GB of memory, 4TB of storage, and a 16GB Radeon graphics card. There's also a dark grey keyboard and mouse, editing software, and a wall-mount adapter.
