The Mac Pro is Apple’s workstation. It’s designed for professionals who need a powerful and flexible machine, and is ideal for applications that use as many processing cores as possible—video-editing applications, image-editing software, 3D programs, and the like.
Here’s the problem with the Mac Pro: Apple hasn’t really done much with it since it was released in December 2013. It got a speed bump in April of this year, but that’s it. At that time, Apple acknowledged that they’re rethinking the Mac Pro, but it’s not coming this year.
