What is a Mac Pro?

The Mac Pro is Apple's most powerful desktop computer ever, aimed at high-end professional users who need ultimate performance and expandability. This is the workstation of choice for most professional graphic designers, repro houses, video editors and publishers and it's really designed to run the very demanding applications used in these areas. If you just want to browse the internet or do word processing then a Mac Pro is not the right machine for you. If you want very fast processing power, massive storage and specialist graphics and video capabilities then read on.

Mac Pro can be configured with different processors - Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Nehalem” or 6-core “Westmere” and can have one or two processors, giving up to 12-core power. RAM is expandable up to 64GB and disk storage can be up to 8TB in the 4 internal drive bays which take either conventional hard drives or solid-state drives which are up to twice as fast and these drives can be configured as a RAID array for fault-tolerance and improved performance.

What do I need to know?

All Macs share many of the same features, and are available in a range of different specifications and prices so several different models may be suitable for your requirements - they all run the same software and do more or less the same thing, so how do you decide which is the right one? We've put together a couple of guides to help you. Read our guide to the different Mac models and our tips on how to choose the right used Mac to help you decide what you need.

Where can I buy one?

There are many places you can buy a Mac Pro - specialist resellers such as MacWarehouse and PC World, leading internet retailers Amazon and eBay and also an ever increasing number of high street retailers such as Currys, Dixons, Saverstore and John Lewis who also sell the Mac Pro. We have put together an Mac Pro price comparison page checking prices from all these sources to find the best deals for you.

What about secondhand Mac Pros?

Secondhand can be an attractive option, saving you the initial depreciation that happens as soon as you open the box, and if you buy a fairly new secondhand one, all the manufacturer's warranty will still be in place so you will be fully covered in the event of any faults. If you're prepared to go slightly older, you can often pick up some real bargains with last year's model going for a fraction of it's original price. eBay is of course one of the best places to find secondhand Mac Pro bargains and we have created a page that searches eBay for you to find the best deals on secondhand Mac Pros for sale. Our unique filtering system trawls through the eBay database selecting only the most relevant offers and best deals to save you time.
