Hands on with the new Mac Pro

David Pierce gives a nice little tour of Apple’s newest superstar.

It cuts a striking figure, despite its relatively small stature. It’s also incredibly dense, far heavier than I expected. Ten inches tall, 6 inches around, and about weighing in at around 11 pounds, it’s definitely meant to be held by its bottom instead of its top lip.

It’s astonishingly reflective — I can see the screen clearly, and anyone who walks by is immediately recognizable — and it picks up fingerprints really easily. But it’s beautiful, understated, and looks great on a desk next to the 4K Sharp monitor we’ve paired it with. It’s particularly good-looking with its case off, exposing the Mac Pro’s machinery, but the case is required to dissipate heat. You can’t even use the Mac Pro with it off.
