iMac Pro is now available for in-store pickup at US Apple retail locations

iMac Pro is now available for in-store pickup at US Apple retail locations. If you’re interested in picking up a new iMac Pro today, check your local Apple Store. Units of the base model 8-core iMac Pro are now available for in-store pickup at US-based Apple Stores.

 The base model iMac Pro is still quite a powerful machine, and includes the following specs:
  • 5K display
  • 8-core Xeon W CPU
  • 32GB of DDR4 ECC RAM
  • 1TB SSD
  • Radeon Pro Vega 56 GPU with 8GB HBM2

If you do any sort of intense editing work with apps like Final Cut Pro X or Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite, then you stand to reap tangible benefits from the new 8-core (16 thread) processor.

Also remember that purchasing the iMac Pro is the only way to score exclusive Apple accessories like space gray Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Keyboard.

As a side note, for those wanting a space gray Magic Trackpad 2, you’ll need to order one at the time of purchase, as it can’t be purchased separately. Unfortunately, doing so will push your delivery date back, which won’t allow you to do in-store pickup today.

Since the workstation is highly customizable, many customers may still prefer to order from Apple’s online store, where exact tech specs, accessories, and software add-ons like Final Cut Pro X can be selected as desired.

iMac Pro starts at $4,999 for a base 8-core model in the United States, with 10-core models available from $5,799, and these configurations are currently estimated for delivery by early to mid-January from Apple’s U.S. online store. 14-core and 18-core models start at $6,599 and $7,399, but they don’t ship for 5-7 weeks.

Online, every configuration has optional upgrades available for storage, memory, and graphics, with prices topping out at $13,199 for a maxed-out, high-end model with an 18-core Intel Xeon processor, 4TB of SSD storage, 128GB of ECC RAM, and AMD Radeon Pro Vega 64 graphics with 16GB of HBM2 memory.

Best Buy is also selling the base-configuration iMac Pro, and some local stores have in-store pickup stock as well. Alternatively, it might be advantageous to pre-order the iMac Pro from B&H, as going that route may offer upfront tax benefits for some purchasers.
