“Apple has quietly upgraded its Mac Pro offerings, adding the option of a 3.33 GHz quad-core processor and adding the ability to configure both the quad-core and 8-core models with 2 TB hard drives, doubling the machine’s total build-to-order hard drive capacity to 8 TB,” Eric Slivka reports for Mac Rumors.
“The upgraded processor carries a hefty price tag as a $1,200 option over the base quad-core 2.66 GHz model, or $800 over the upgraded 2.93 GHz processor,” Slivka reports. “Pricing, however, remains well below the company’s top-of-the-line 8-core models running at 2 x 2.66 GHz or 2 x 2.93 GHz.”
Slivka reports, “The 2 TB hard drives are priced at $550 each.”
