Illustration for article titled Apple Adds 12-Core Mac Pros to Store

$5,000 burning a hole in your pocket? Apple's 12-core Mac Pros have been added to the store just now. Minimum spec includes two 2.66GHz 6-core Xeon Westmere processors and 1TB of storage.

Minimum specs start at 6GB of memory, an 18x double-layer SuperDrive, and ATI Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB GDDR5. The overall design hasn't changed since the previous incarnation, with the biggest overhaul happening inside the aluminum case—the 45nm Nahalem processors have been ramped up to 32 nm Westmere processors.

To all the people talking about how their PC was cheaper and is better:

You know, an AMC Pacer, from 1976, does the same job as a 2011 Lexus.

It gets you from point A, to point B.

Bad example?

Ok, how about this.

A $20,000 Toyota has the same specs and features and a $80,000 Mercedes.

Are you guys all trolling the Jalopnik forums telling the Benz owners how stupid they are?

Yes.

You can get a better Windows machine for less.

So, go get one.

You can also fly coach, instead of first class, yet, first class usually sells out.

If it's not your money, stop telling people they are stupid for spending it the way they want. (unless it's the gub'ment. keep harping on them)

People who buy the Mac Pro know they can get other machines for less.

But, they still buy the Mac.

Oh, and next time you're out watching a 3D movie, take into consideration the CGI was most likely done on a Mac Pro, not your custom rig that can run Crysis.

Because, you know, using a computer is about more than playing games.
