New Mac Pros Shipping Earlier Than Expected?!

Monday, December 30th, 2013 | Author:

While it has been well documented online that the new Mac Pro models hit a stock issue with orders being delayed, it looks like Apple is ramping up shipping times. One order we had that was delayed until January 2014 is showing that its shipping earlier.

So hopefully more fellow “Mac heads” out there will be receiving notice that their Mac Pros will be arriving early, and maybe early enough to take a tax write-off for 2013!

What Do you Call 6 Displays and a 2013 Mac Pro? Fun!

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013 | Author:

Well those 6 Thunderbolt ports on the back of the new Mac Pro were just staring me in the face to try ‘em all out. Since the new Mac Pro can do three 4k monitors, I thought it should be able to handle six 27″ displays. Yup, it sure did. All six 27″ 2560 x 1440 displays ran at full resolution. Five Dells, one Apple cinema display, all connected via mini DisplayPort.

Pretty cool. And there’s a little HDMI port left over as well. Hmmm…
