Apple’s Tim Cook unveiled some new iWatches two new versions of the iPhone, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8plus, and the super luxury iPhone X.
Why they aren’t numbered 8, 9 and 10 will have OCD sufferers furiously rearranging the fridge in frustration, but it is obvious that the iPhone X only exists to mark the 10th birthday of the iconic contraption.
As usual with these product launches, there were no revelations about any new computers from Apple, but since June there have been quiet leaks of information about the new iMac Pro, which is due to arrive in December.
The new desktop will feature a massive 18 Core Xeon Purley processor, running at up to 4.5GHz, a minimum of 32GB RAM, expandable up to 128GB, and up to 4TB of SSD hard drive space.
The bottom of the range iMac Pro will sell for just under $5,000 (American) but Zdnet.com has calculated that the “Full Spec” version, including all 18cores 128GB of RAM and supersized 4TB SSD will cost over $17,000 (American)!
Apple’s innovative design and functionality may be beyond price for some, but a fully ‘roided up Hackintosh at these specs would leave this not yet released computer in the dust, as you would have enough change from $17,000 (American) to buy yourself a vintage Harley Davidson Roadster.
