Apple Mac Pro looks like a cheese grater, Mac and Cheese jokes take over twitter
After a gap of six years, Apple has finally revamped its Mac Pro this year at WWDC 2019 and it is nothing like we expected. Since the predecessor Mac Pro looked like a replica of a ‘trash can’, the company decided to take that design to another level and now people are calling it ‘Apple cheese grater’. Fun fact, the design before the ‘trash can’ also resembled a cheese grater, albeit a rather large one at that.
Priced at $4,999 and packed with several features, Mac Pro does have an Intel Xeon processor with can go up to 28 cores, 1.5 TB of RAM across 12 DIMM slots, 4 TB of SSD storage and AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPU, all powered by a 1.4 kW power supply.
But obviously, the look of the device is overshadowing its insanely high specs and people have now moved on to twitter to talk about the device. Here are a few reactions that you won’t want to miss.
