Pros

  • Ios Integration
  • Powerful

Cons

  • No Manual Or Instructions

Best Uses

  • Small Business Server

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

I am a long time Windows user, but opted to try this machine since it could run both operating systems (MAC being a closed system). A similarly configured Windows machine would be much lower in cost, but won't run OX. For a $ (at $ one wonders why this is not offered as part of the software with the machine) the machine can add server software to host websites, file share, have an email server, and the OSX (iPhone style) calandar/contacts integration, instant messaging. While not simple, it is easier to use (but less powerful and flexible) than a Windows based server. I found that in a small office environment intregration with OSX (IPad IPhone) very useful, and this is why I give the machine a 5 star rating (that and the machine is whisper quiet, but still very powerful). The machine comes with NO manual whatsoever. At this price you would expect at least a few pages of paper describing the features of the machine, setup instructions, and a thumb drive( there is no disk drive) that contains more detailed instructions. If you are new to Apple like me you will need to buy an instruction book and introduction to the operating system and to the server (if installed). When you need help, you are directed to your local @ and serviced by an "Apple Genius" in the same manner (in the same long lines) as IPhone and IPad users. Monitors and external devices are connected through "Thunderbolt" or USB devices. Thunderbolt technologies can be daisy chained, but make sure your devices have more than one thunderbolt port so that you can take advantage of daisy chaining. The only other wired ports are two network ports. Wireless support for a wireless mouse/trackpad and wireless keyboard, Bluetooth, wi fi, and air play are standard.

  • Powerful
  • Quiet

Cons

  • No Internal Expansion

Best Uses

  • Graphics Work
  • Video editing

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

I use this machine primarily for Video editing, and so far, I am impressed. My last workstation was a 2012 Mac Pro with a Cuda Graphics card, and 48Gs of RAM. It was a solid mating, but this little guy blows it away. So far I've edited H264, PRO-RES, and R3Ds using FCPX and Adobe CC. I'm glad to see Apple hasn't totally forgotten about the Pros.

The only thing negative I have to say has been said countless times. There's not internal expansion. My desk can become quite cluttered with cables and peripherals with this thing. But, that's a manageable price to pay for the performance I'm getting.
