One of the biggest criticisms of the new Mac Pro is the $6,000 starting price that gets you an 8-core Xeon processor, 8GB Radeon Pro RX580X GPU, 32GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. The sticker shock got me on the day it was announced and I’ve read countless comment and forum threads pointing out the fact that you can get a Windows workstation for half or even less that is comparable to the new Mac Pro.
However, I haven’t seen anyone point a link to a system in the $2000 to $3000 range that matches the new Mac Pro. So, let’s look at a big Windows workstation provider for creative pros and see how Apple’s Mac Pro matches up against a modern HP Z-series workstation. [Read more…]
One of the big highlights during the new Mac Pro unveil yesterday was the machine’s 8K video editing prowess; however, there is a shortage of cameras capable of capturing 8K footage. During Jonathan Morrison’s Hands-On video (embedded below) of the new Mac Pro, we got a sneak peek of an unreleased Canon 8K cinema camera that was used to capture 8K Pro-Res RAW. [Read more…]

Apple has updated its MacBook Pro line with an option for Intel Core i9 8-core processors starting at $2799.
The 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor is the first 8-core processor available in the product line. Mating the 8-core processor with 32GB of RAM and up to a Radeon Pro Vega 20 with 4GB GPU provides some serious horsepower. While the laptops are still limited to four USB-C/Thunderbolt ports, they continue to be touted as top-of-the-line machines for creative professionals.
Of course, all this comes at a price. The entry to 8-core horsepower starts at $2799 and ratchets up quickly as you build up to a fully decked out machine for $6549. Check it out here at B&H Photo and here on Apple.com.
B&H has the 12″ MacBook (2017 model) for $799 (reg. $1299) as one of its Deal Zone deals for today only. The deal applies to the gold and rose gold colors only. [UPDATE: Only the Rose Gold color remains. Gold is sold out.] The standard silver color is still only $100 off the regular price at $1199 now. This is a stupid good deal on a recent model MacBook.
