For a little over a month now we have available the new generation of the Mac Pro, the high-end computer – very high – from Apple, whose history is very interesting. They went from those grey workstations called PowerMacintosh to a new concept called PowerMac that inherited the iMac concept: those boxes that went unnoticed in professional offices were now translucent and with a design that did not go unnoticed.
In the midst of the life of these machines, came the transition from PowerPC to Intel : Steve Jobs himself showed the world the first PowerMac with x86 architecture – renamed to Mac Pro – demonstrating that the company and the ecosystem were ready. And there was another design change: a cylinder that for the first time changed the shape factor and brought many headaches to Apple and users because of its complicated expansion possibilities.
The company was very clear that a change of direction was needed and promised a new generation of professional computers to meet the changing needs of the industry. Meanwhile, the iMac Pro was launched, which was practically a Mac Pro of the time under the screen of an iMac – and which gained so much popularity that the brand will probably keep it in the catalog as the “Pro” desktop range for those who don’t need the tremendous power of the new machines introduced in December.
In this episode, Eduardo and I talk about this story and the curiosities and steps that have occurred in the life of an iconic device within the Apple mythology . Also about its future, now that this new machine opens up a new world of possibilities for the next few years in the Mac range.
