Customers who can afford its $4,999 pricetag may now be able to find the 8-core base model of the iMac Pro in some U.S. Apple stores, ready for pickup.
Apple had originally told the press that units could be on store shelves as soon as last week. Online orders began arriving Dec. 27.
Shoppers should check Apple's pickup availability before heading out, as some places still don't have the computer in stock. In those cases, outlets are typically quoting Jan. 11 as the next possible pickup date.
The default Pro also comes with 32 gigabytes of RAM, 1 terabyte of SSD storage, and AMD's 8-gigabyte Radeon Pro Vega 56 video card. Many upgrade options are available, such as a 10-core CPU, but 14- and 18-core machines aren't shipping until next month.
Aimed mainly at people doing tasks like 3D rendering, simulations, and video editing, the Pro is easily one of the more expensive products in Apple history. A top-end 18-core configuration will cost as much as $13,199.
Those looking to save on an iMac Pro purchase can also pick up the new desktop with no tax in most states. At press time, Abt Electronics is shipping the standard $4,999 configuration with no tax outside IL, IN, MI and WI, while B&H and Adorama have upgraded models in stock with no tax outside NY and NJ.
