In line with yesterday's announcement, Apple's redesigned Mac Pro is now available for order through the company's online stores. The Mac Pro currently ships by December 30, though upgraded versions list a non-specific "January" shipping estimate.

The new Mac Pro is available in two stock configurations, starting with a $2999 model equipped with a 3.7 GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12 GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D300 graphics chips, and 256 GB of flash storage. A higher-level $3999 model bumps the specs to a 3.5 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and dual AMD FirePro D500 graphics. Additional build-to-order options are available for up to a 12-core processor, 64 GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D700 graphics, and 1 TB of flash storage.

Aside from the two stock models, build-to-order options can be configured individually, with pricing compared to the base $2999 Mac Pro as follows:

CPU (Stock: 3.7GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5)
- 3.5GHz 6-Core: +$500
- 3.0GHz 8-core: +$2000
- 2.7GHz 12-core: +$3500

Graphics (Stock: Dual AMD FirePro D300 with 2GB GDDR5 each)
- Dual AMD FirePro D500 with 3 GB GDDR5 each: +$400
- Dual AMD FirePro D700 with 6 GB GDDR5 each: +$1000

RAM (Stock: 12GB 1866MHz DDR3 ECC - 3x4GB)
- 16GB (4x4GB): +$100
- 32GB (4x8GB): +$500
- 64GB (4x16GB): +$1300

Flash Storage (Stock: 256GB PCIe-based)
- 512GB: +$300
- 1TB: +$800

The Mac Pro also includes options to add on both Apple's 27-inch Thunderbolt Display and Sharp's 32-inch 4K Display that Apple temporarily began offering in Europe in early December. The Sharp display is available for $3595. Mac Pro buyers can also choose to add on a newly released matching black Thunderbolt cable, available in 0.5 and 2 meter lengths for $29 or $39, respectively.

A fully loaded 12-core Mac Pro with 64GB of RAM, dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs and 1TB of PCI-e based flash storage retails for $9599 in the United States.

I'll be flying over to the USA and slipping one of these in my carry-on for those prices. :D

The TSA check will be interesting.

No signs of a new mouse, keyboard, or display?

I feel like if so, they cut some corners that they didn't with the Cube. The Cube's elements were designed to fit together quite beautifully: the speakers, keyboard, mouse, and display all fit together.

The 2009 Apple BT keyboard is beautiful, but not sure it's a match for the new Mac Pro. I would have liked to have seen a new display with integrated speakers and new KB/mouse in black, but Apple more and more seems to be a very large company with very few resources—stretched quite thin.

"Ships" by December 30!

Saw this coming, so glad I didn't plan on one for this Tax Year, Guess I'll go for the processor upgrade in 2014.

Wow that 4k Sharp display is almost pound to the dollar.

£3499 and $3595.

MacPro starts at £2499 and $2999.

Looks like there is no logical formula for their international pricing.

So happy that I have no use for a stationary computer. Finally an Apple product that I don't must buy!
