The Visual Evolution of the Mac Pro

Apple has come a long way since its first modular desktop, the Macintosh II, which was introduced in 1987. The designs underwent radical changes after the return of Steve Jobs in 1997. The first Mac Pro was born in 2006; however, in 2013 Apple introduced a complete redesign. Now available in a unique cylinder form factor, the Mac Pro stands just under 10 inches tall, and just over 6.5 inches in diameter. Its smaller footprint allows users to place them directly on their desks, while still providing next-gen components to usher in emerging technologies, such as 4K. Come see how Mac desktops have evolved over the years.
