Mac Pro Availability

The Mac Pros as we know them are no longer available, being replaced some time in December by the new black cylindrical high end models. In the meantime if you’d like to grab a standard Mac Pro before they’re all gone, go with Apple Certified refurbished. We’ve had excellent experiences with the refurbished Macs from Apple. Please use our affiliate link since it returns a few dollars to MacLab for the recommendation. You’ll find deals on iMacs, MacBooks Pros, Minis and more.
