“The ‘low-end’ iMac Pros (8-core and 10-core) compete very well against ‘well configured’ Mac Pros,” Morgan writes. “If you can tolerate limited upgradeability and multiple external enhancements (TB 3 eGPUs and TB3/USB3 storage) it can be a serious replacement for an existing Mac Pro — if you can’t wait for the promised ‘modular’ 2018 Mac Pro.”
