    Too bad, I'd like a darker space gray design for a consumer iMac.
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 5:55:26 PM
    Up to 22 teraflops of half precision

  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 5:56:47 PM
    "With all these high performance technologies, this iMac Pro is going to be an awesome workstation."
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 5:56:54 PM
  • Sarah Tew 6/5/2017 5:57:02 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 5:57:14 PM
    "If you were to go out and build a comparable system today, it would cost over $7,000"

    Retina 5K display, etc
  • dan.ackerman 6/5/2017 5:57:33 PM
    But, the big question I'm sure everyone is asking -- will this be a big new product -- like the cylindrical Mac Pro desktop -- that gets a big launch, but then gets ignored for a few years with minimal if any updates?
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 5:57:33 PM
    Available in December
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 5:57:43 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/5/2017 5:58:08 PM
    To be fair, $4,999 for that iMac Pro is pretty great -- I've reviewed plenty of run-of-the-mill gaming laptops that cost almost that much.

    "The world's best and most advanced mobile operating system."
  • dan.ackerman 6/5/2017 5:58:24 PM
    And don't forget the $8,000 Acer Predator 21 X...
  • James Martin 6/5/2017 5:58:24 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 5:58:27 PM

  • James Martin 6/5/2017 5:58:50 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 5:58:53 PM

  • James Martin 6/5/2017 5:59:00 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 5:59:06 PM
    Boasting 86% installed base (which allows features that will hit more users, thus encouraging developers to try them out)
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 5:59:14 PM
    "Today we're going to take the world's best and most advanced mobile operating system and turn it up to 11."

  • Scott Stein 6/5/2017 6:00:14 PM
    Messages now has an App Drawer, so it's no weird to find your stickers (ha)
  • Shara Tibken 6/5/2017 6:00:31 PM
    "The big story with message is messages in iCloud. When you sign into another device, all of your conversations are automatically synchronized"
