    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.

    Let's see what the BTO pricing in Germany has added up to when the store comes online again.

    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.

    It's so beautiful that if I had the money I would buy one. Even if it was just to stare at it.

    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.

    I want one. I do not need one. I certainly can not afford one.

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

    I was hoping the Mac Mini would be updated as well. Bummer.
