“Every so often Apple’s design department puts together a piece of kit so incredible to look at, that it becomes an instant classic. The latest addition to this design hall of fame is, without a doubt, the new Mac Pro,” Hunter Skipworth reports for Digital Spy. “Alongside other iconic devices like the “lick-able” candy colored iMac, it acts as a reminder of just how drastically the company is willing to shift its design ethos in order to push things forward.”

“It never really needed to look hugely special, likely doomed to remain underneath the desks of video editors the world over. But instead Apple has created a design marvel, simply because it can,” Skipworth reports. “Place the new Mac Pro next to its previous generation counterpart and it almost feels like this latest device has come from the future.”

“So extreme is the difference in size, we still can’t quite get our heads round how Apple has managed to make the Mac Pro that much smaller, yet more powerful,” Skipworth reports. “The new Mac Pro makes a triumphant return as the go-to device for creatives the world over. What makes it truly special, is that it does so with such style and innovation.”
