Comments about Apple Mac Pro Desktop Computer (Quad-Core, Late 2013):

While this is the base model, it works great for video production. I have had an older mac pro before this and a macbook pro too, but this renders much quicker and efficiently. This is a good investment, but make sure you have harddrives that can handle the work load and speed (not ones bought cheaply at [@]).

    Comments about Apple Mac Pro Desktop Computer (Quad-Core, Late 2013):

    I am an a mechanical engineer and I purchased the Mac Pro for working at home. I use it a minimum of 12 hours per day and I love the Mac Pro computer more than any other I have ever owned.
    The Mac Pro has allowed me to work at home with incredible efficiency (I actually get more done than I did when I worked with others in an office) via the use of Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Preview, iTunes (all included), and my drafting software (not included). The computer occupies minimal room on my desktop yet stores everything I need from drafting work to X-rays to microscope photos as well as standard workplace correspondence. Further, the computer operates my drafting software and wireless printer/plotter flawlessly, and with EXTREME speed. I've never experienced 3D model rendering or the copying of gigabyte size files completed so quickly. It's simply amazing.
    The Mac Pro is equipped with plenty of ports for peripheral gear such as a CD burner, camera card reader, music recording interface, or thunderbolt compatible external hard drives (great for backup), and provides 4 ports for the use of multiple monitors (I use 2 thunderbolt monitors). Unlike some computers I have owned in the past, no sophisticated setup or software is needed or necessary to operate multiple monitors; the Mac Pro configures them automatically and immediately when connected.
    Not only is the computer compact, it generates very low levels of heat and is comprised of a component cooling fan that I have yet to hear. As such, it does not add heat to the office or interfere with any voice or music recording one might perform. The processor is super fast, unbelievably fast compared to my prior computer, and definitely faster than any laptop I have ever used. Further, it is a beautiful piece of gear with its black mirror finish.
    I am unable to cite a single complaint about the Mac Pro nor do I have any regrets about purchasing the computer from B&H Photo. I received EXCELLENT service, purchased an EXCELLENT product, and now enjoy EXCELLENT computer performance! The Mac Pro is, without doubt, the best computer purchase I have ever made and is arguably the best innovation in computers since computers became affordable to the general public.
    I would recommend the Mac Pro over any other stationary Mac computer and definitely over any PC for any purpose. You simply can't purchase a higher quality computer. PERIOD!! You cannot get yours soon enough!!

    I have been waiting a LONG TIME to buy this computer and the wait was completely worth it.
    I am a Professional Cinematographer who wants to move in to the Editing World and this is how I chose to do it. Awesome experience so far.

    Comments about Apple Mac Pro Desktop Computer (Quad-Core, Late 2013):

    This replaces my old 2009 MacPro and it is at least 2-3x faster at most tasks. The SSD drive averages between 800-900MBs read/write! The system boots in 4 seconds, apps load instantaneously and having Thunderbolt 2 drives attached I get incredibly fast storage now as well as the ability to run 4K displays.

    Biggest bonus is being able to run it all day with low power consumption and very little heat even when doing heavy tasks such as video encoding or working in Lightroom.

    Comments about Apple Mac Pro Desktop Computer (Quad-Core, Late 2013):

    This is not only a work of art it is a spectacular machine. First Mac that I have ever owned that is completely silent. Faster than a blinking an eye. Literally starts in five seconds. Powerful almost be on belief.

    Comments about Apple Mac Pro Desktop Computer (Quad-Core, Late 2013):

    Though I did have to wait a long time for it to arrive I was excited to receive my new Mac Pro. Even though it's the baseline model it still spits out renders faster than my fully upgraded machine at work.

    It looks pretty and works like a beast. What more do you want?

        I was trying to decide between the new Mac Pro and the 27 inch iMac. The new Mac Pro runs Final Cut and Aperture at blazing speeds. Thunderbolt 2 is a delight (upgrading from Firewire ). Very happy with my purchase. B&H shipped very quickly, a pleasure to do business with.

            Comments about Apple Mac Pro Desktop Computer (Quad-Core, Late 2013):

            I purchased this MacPro Quad core to replace my aging MacBook Pro 2011 model. It is used primarily for music production. This is my first "Pro" Mac since owning a G4 tower years ago and I am very pleased with my decision. I was on the fence deciding between the latest iMac i7 with Haswell CPU and this one and I'm glad I decided to get the Pro! The benefits over the iMac are: it is expandable to 64Gb RAM (compared to 32gb for the iMac), it supports "4k" displays (even though I have no need for one now, I'm sure prices will come down and. unlike with the iMac, I'll be ready), and the upgradable Xeon CPU. In addition, the ECC RAM and Xeon CPU provide a level of stability that desktops just do not.

            The only things weighing in favor of the iMac were: the amazing 27" display and the relative cost for a somewhat comparable configuration. Overall, though, the Mac Pro is worth the extra expense for longterm upgradability and stability. Highly recommended!
